The HOT 97 Morning Show


Remember the rumors about Kanye West’s boldly naming his next album “I Am God” and all the controversy that came with it?

It turns out Kanye’s album won’t be called “I Am God” but, he is in fact coming out with a single with the title and that’s probably where all the confusion came from.

A Kanye West insider apparently contacted HuffPost to clear up the misunderstanding:

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.

How do you feel about Kanye dropping a record with that title? Let’s not forget “Jesus Walks.”
