Kanye West has filed papers to trademark "Half Beast," the name of his potential new movie business, TMZ reports.

Per the documents obtained by TMZ, West filed legal paperwork back in August. The full title would be Half Beast, LLC, and would act as a film production company.

Interestingly, this isn't the first time West has applied for the trademark — the rapper tried to acquire the name back in 2015 and 2016, stating it would umbrella "entertainment services, movies, books, and more."

This potential foray into the movie industry would add yet another string to the musician/designer/Pornhub awards show creative director/aspiring social housing creator's bow.  The kind of films he'd want to create, however, is still under wraps.
