Is Kanye West Comparing Himself to God With New Album Title?
There are rumors that Kanye West is naming his new album "I Am God," but that's only part of the story... Rumors are swirling that Kanye West is naming his new record "I Am God."
Now, we know Kanye isn't exactly the most humble man on earth, but would he really go that far?
Doesn't look like it...
A source tells Huffington Post that the title in question is for a single, not an album, and that it's actually "I Am A God."
"We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being," the source revealed.
Kanye's songwriter, Malik Yusef addressed the controversy on his twitter page, writing, "I have my luv, and saying I am "A" GOD is the word of GOD,looking thru the EYES of love of course."
In another tweet about the song, Malik referenced Psalm 82, which reads:
"You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes."
So, it looks like Kanye isn't calling himself GOD, he's just saying he is A GOD.
Do you think the song title is still a little over-the-top?
