The Name of Kanye West’s Next Album is Rumored to Be ‘I Am God’

Kanye West has a new album coming out soon and the rumored title would rattle a lot of religious nerves:

Kanye West is raising eyebrows again with a rumor that he’s naming his sixth studio album “I Am God.”

The new album’s title has yet to be confirmed but aside from the possible name and a small list of contributors including The-Dream and Malik Yusef, details on the rapper’s forthcoming album are scarce.

It sounds like people are taking a few words and giving them a ridiculous amount of meaning. Which is very God-like…

Plus, there’s proof Kanye West actually exists…

Well, I’ll be damned, Kanye has one-upped the Bible.

And I guess that would make Kim Kardashian the Virgin Mary? (Let that one percolate in your mind for a bit.)

    Well god is a vain, unstable, personality with a giant ego whose continued popularity is baffling. The main difference between him and Kanye is god can’t rap.

  • C Peterson

    It’s virtually certain that I’ll never hear anything from this album, but if I did, my nerves would certainly be rattled… and nothing to do with religion!

  • Rain

    You forgot to say get offa my lawn! Be gone lawn people, get offa there.

    He is still a gay fish “South Park reference” and I truly feel bad for their child. I would rather be born into the Phelps clan.

  • C Peterson

    I don’t have a lawn. They’re environmentally unfriendly.

  • Pseudonym

    No. No no no no no. FA is a Kardashian-free zone, and I think it’s important we keep it this way.

  • Rain

    Even the lawn has to get offa the lawn! Get offa my lawn, lawn.

  • Samuel Shore

    Which begs the question: When are we going to get a rap audiobook of the Bible?

    “What’s a God to a non-believer?”

  • Fargofan

    Remember his Rolling Stone photos as Jesus? This isn’t really new for him.

    It would still be better than autotuning.

  • Self Love

    You must just be a bug at cocktail parties. Jesus, you are the epitome of humourless, cloying and self righteous liberal. Seriously I wonder if you have any life at all outside this forum and sitting on some soapbox of self admiration.

    I’d prefer worshipping Kim Kardashian.

    God of what? Ripping off other people’s songs?

    When ODB had a press conference just to inform people he was changing his name to “Big Baby Jesus”, it was hysterical because he really was insane (or close enough to it). Kanye just makes claims about himself for attention and to sell his “music”.

  • Mario Strada

    you called?

  • C Peterson

    Must be sad to completely lack any sense of humor…

    Rain is funny. You’re just a drag.

  • Rain

    I’m humourless, cloying and self righteous liberal.

    Kanye, like god, doesn’t actually exist. If you look closely you just see fragments of prior deities compiled without compensation. (Sampling burns) (Lame burns)

  • RobMcCune

    I suppose that would be Kanye’s way of smiting the earth with a curse.

    This reminded me of the movie Religulous when Maher was interviewing Ken Ham. Ham asked him “Are you God?” which of course Maher’s answer was no. I’d love to see that same question posed to Kanye and see the response of Ham.

  • LesterBallard

    I don’t think I’ve ever been this torn before. I don’t care if religious people get upset by this; on the other hand, I don’t care about Kanye West.

    uhm, kanye can’t rap either…

  • CelticWhisper

    Pssh. Every Kamelot fan knows that Tommy Karevik is god. He even says so in “Veritas”.

  • Tobias2772

    Actually, God thinks he is Kanye West

    iirc West said something negative about GWBush. so he’s ok in my book.

    don’t know anything about his music or the woman he’s with, don’t really care. if he upsets the religious, that’s fine with me.

    Kim Jong-il will not be pleased.

  • scott johnson

    Comparing Kim Kardash to the Virgin Mary is blasphemous.. Learn some respect

  • baal

    hrph. I’m humourless, cloying and self righteous liberal.

    Hah! Well I’m a funny sour-pussed humble conservative!

    I think the biggest victim of that was Shrek.

    Honestly, it was always going this direction anyway. No one should be surprised.

  • phranckeaufile

    I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe.

  • John (not McCain)

    At least KK doesn’t lie about her virginity. To my knowledge, anyway.

  • Dustin

    All the knocking of rap and hip-hop aside, I think this is cool. I enjoy some Kanye (Watch the Throne was a pretty good album). Considering his ego, this isn’t surprising at all. I, for one, am excited to hear it and see any fallout from Christians.

    One might say that Kanye would go HAM.

  • Cortex_Returns

    Well, at least we get a rap album, not another Book of Mormon.

  • CDP

    Every atheist is a fanatical worshiper of the god he or she sees in the mirror everyday. The promise of non-religion: be your own god. Didn’t know the good sir was an atheist, but it would make sense if he thinks this.

  • Rev. Red Mage

    If I’ve learned anything from Ghostbusters, it’s that when somebody asks you that question, you say “Yes”.
