Kanye West’s New Album Will Not Be Called “I Am God,” However…


Everyone knows that Kanye West thinks very highly of himself. But does he think he’s God? 

We’re not sure, but earlier in the week a rumor hit the net (from the BBC, mind you) that Kanye West was going to name his new album I Am God. Given Kanye’s ego, it’s not hard to believe that this couldn’t be somewhat true.


HuffPost Entertainment went out and tried to find the real story. The website talked to a source in Kanye West’s camp and he or she had this to say about the title:

“We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the Supreme Being.”

The source went on to say that the rapper has a song with the title.

Malik Yusef, who is a member of Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music camp, tweeted about the title, saying that it will be called “I Am A GOD,” with the hashtag #psalms82.

If you were wondering, here is a portion of Psalm 82:

  • “I said, ‘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.’”
