Here’s what the Huff Post reports:
“Given West’s habit of being outspoken (and a Rolling Stone cover in which he posed in a crown of thorns), many sites were eager to run with the unattributed factoid. The only problem is that that rumor appears to be a bit of a misunderstanding. A reliable source in West’s camp tells HuffPost Entertainment that the title is actual for an upcoming single, and that the album’s name has yet to be set. The track will be called “I Am A God” (emphasis added).
“We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being,” the source said. While everyone will have to wait for the actual song to parse the specifics of the song’s message, the source hinted that the idea was generally that all people are manifestations of a higher power.”
And according to HipHopWired, West’s longtime collaborator Malik Yusuf also backed this claim, adding that it’s a Biblical reference.
“@TeamKanyeChi its “I am(A) GOD” FAMO #psalms 82,” he tweeted. Psalm 82, from the King James version of the Bible, reads partly, “I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High. But ye shall die like men and fall like one of the princes.”
What’s your take on Kanye’s new single?
