In the street, there's this street vendor, and he's more or less pushed out of the way. They just see a dirty bum. His reaction is a little puzzled, but at that point, he is in many ways a changed man. I thought that was a great way to show that."

Kanye West Debuts 'I Am a God' at 2013 Governors Ball


June 10, 2013 08:41:59 GMT


As fans eagerly await the release of his new album "Yeezus" on June 18, Kanye West gave a preview of his much-anticipated sixth LP via his live performance at the 2013 Governors Ball on Sunday, June 9 at Randall Island in New York City. The recently-turned 36-year-old G.O.O.D. Music mogul debuted the track "I Am a God", that seems to perfectly go hand-in-hand with the album's title.

Just from the title, the new single looks to be yet again a controversy magnet much like the album's supposed cover art featuring a cartoonized West nailed onto a Y-shaped cross deemed "blasphemous" and a "disgrace" by members of the Christian faith. But it may well be just another way the rapper has chosen to express his self-worth to the extreme, similar to the album's brazen title.
