Kanye West: 'I Am God' to be the name of his next album?


Kanye West is going to ruffle some feathers if the latest rumor about his upcoming album is true. It has been reported that the record is going to be called "I Am God," though that isn't supposed to be how West actually views himself.

BBC News reported that the title is supposed to be "half tongue-in-cheek" and that the album would come out in 2013. However, E! News cites a source who says the story is not true. West hasn't addressed the rumor on Twitter.

West and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian recently traveled to the Chris the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and angered some when they posted Instagrams where they copied the statue's stance. Maybe it was then that West found the inspiration for his alleged new album title. This isn't the first time West has created a parallel between himself and Christ, as he released the single "Jesus Walks" in 2005 and recreated the crucifixion on the cover of Rolling Stone in 2006.
