Last week BBC reported that the album title for Kanye West‘s new album would be I Am God, a tidbit that was quickly picked up and spread around the internet, only to have the inevitable cycle repeat itself today with the report that this is, in fact, NOT the title. It could be the title of the new single though.
According to a tweet from Malik Yusef, the title would be modified to “I Am A God” and takes it’s significance from Psalm 82. The psalm goes: “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.” This sounds like a sentiment Ye would definitely relate to, but who knows.

The Huffington Post is also reporting that a “reliable source” from the West entourage confirmed the title to them. According to the source: “We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being.” Supposedly, the concept behind the song is to instill the idea that the power of God is in all of us. All this talk makes me excited to hear it, no matter what the name is.
