Kanye West set the world on fire yesterday when reports ran rampant that Kanye West’s upcoming album was titled I AM A GOD. However, a reliable source in West’s camp tells HuffPost Entertainment that the title is actually for an upcoming single, and that the album’s name has yet to be set. The track will be called “I Am A God” .
“We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being,” the source said. Now of course we all have to wait for the actual song to hit the airwaves for the specifics of the song’s message. But the source hinted that the idea was generally that all people are manifestations of a higher power. The title is also a reference to Psalm 82, which includes the following:
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.”
Leave it to Yeezy to get tongues wagging! I know Kanye has a HUGE ego but I hope he wouldn’t go that far! I look forward to the new album. I am a huge Kanye fan, controversy and all…
