Kanye West is rumoured to be naming his new album “I Am God.”
West’s fans and non-fans were angered by this revelation. The album’s name is reportedly a rumour and West’s camp has not confirmed the real title. However, the rapper/producer does have a song titled “I Am God,” which could have caused the confusion.
BBC News reported that West may be naming his child with Kim Kardashian “North” and may have sparked the rumour about the album.
According to the Huffington Post, a source from West’s camp gave the reason for the confusion. The title is actually for an upcoming single and not the album’s name.
The source also said, “we would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being.”
“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.”
But it all comes down to West’s habit of being outspoken. The rapper had never been afraid of controversy, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he does name his album “I Am God”
