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.’”
