Title Of Kanye West’s Upcoming Single Revealed

(AllHipHop News) Whenever Kanye West releases an album it becomes an event, and as a result the press and fans cannot wait to find out as many details about the project as early as they can.

Unfortunately, this anticipation leads to many rumors and reports that sometime do not pan out as true. For example, there have been numerous reports that West’s 6th solo LP will be titled anything from Black American Psycho to Rich Black American to the most recent speculation of I Am God.

Well according to The Huffington Post an insider close to West says that “I Am God” is not the name for the entire album, but it is not far off from the title of a future single.

A reliable source in West’s camp tells HuffPost Entertainment that the title is actual [sic] 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).

G.O.O.D. Music artist Malik Yusef confirmed the title in a tweet:

@teamkanyechi its “I am(A) GOD” FAMO #psalms 82

— Malik Yusef (@malikyusef) March 26, 2013

Apparently the title is inspired by the bible passage Psalms 82:6-7 which reads, “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.”

The slight difference of adding the “a” to make it “I Am A God” is to distinguish that the song is not suggesting that Kanye himself is the Creator but that every person has the power to be a greater being.

“We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being,” the source told HuffPost.

Kanye West has a history of incorporating religious/spiritual ideas and imagery into his work. One of his first breakout singles was the track “Jesus Walks” off The College Dropout. He appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine with Christ’s crown of thorns. He donned a huge necklace of the Egyptian god Horus in the video for “Power,” and Watch The Throne‘s “No Church In The Wild” touched on the theme of morality versus decadence.

No dates have been announced for when the single or the currently untitled album will be released.
