Update: Looks like this rumor we reported on back around Valentine’s Day turned out to be true, according to The Huffington Post. Malik Yusef has cleared things up a bit in a Tweet, saying the track is called “I Am A God”, referencing Psalm 82, which reads:


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.”


A source told the Huffington Post that the emphasis is on the word “A”, as “We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being.”


There you have it, folks. We don’t like to post rumors here, but when we do, it’s because the source is airtight.


2/14: We’ve heard from a pretty reliable source that Kanye West will court controversy once again with the lead single to his next album, with a song called “I Am God”. We are hearing that he will reunite with “Power” video director Marco Brambilla for another ambitious, hyper-visual video project for the single. While this is still in the rumor stages, only time will tell if it comes true.


In other Kanye album news, HitFix confirms that both Malik Yusef and The-Dream have recorded tracks for the new LP.


“He is a perfectionist, obviously. It’s harsh… He says no to a hundred things,” Yusef told Hitfix. “I can’t talk too much about it. Just remember black music, the black experience. It’s a throwback to that era,” he said, but “a distillation of what’s happening in the modern world.”


Yusef also confirms that the album will not have a heavy amount of singing, as on 808′s & Heartbreak.


“I don’t know if we’d ever revisit that amount of singing,” Yusef said.


The-Dream spoke on his work for Kanye’s record as well, saying that he’s flying to Paris to record with Kanye in a couple of weeks.


“Hopefully we can get another Grammy together,” he told Hitfix.

    I think the black community needs to reject people like Kanye and not embrace people who act like egoticical hypocrites, but what do I know.

    Kanye has tarnished his artistic integrity to the point in my world he is completely irrelevant.

  • real talk says:

    the dude is a clown. very talented but empty and has no substance. he is the epitome of of the expression “success will take you far where character cannot sustain you”. peace

    Kanye is wack. Period.

  • georgel says:

    kanye is responsible for some of the best jay-z songs, some of the better albums of the past 10 years and some of the best produced songs also. u people seriously have no respect for that? you dont have to like him as a person but to say he is wack is ridiculous. lil wayne is wack, drake is wack, minaj is wack you can call alot of artists now wack but your crazy if you cant admit he has talent.
