Yeezy took the opportunity of headlining Day 3 of the NYC music fest to drop tracks from his new album 'Yeezus'.
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.
Performing in a one-and-a-half-hour-long set that started twenty minutes late, West also dished out the recently debuted tracks, "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead". "New Slaves" had been popping out all over the world through screenings of its clip via building projections while "BlacK Skinhead" was viewed globally as well via the hit TV comedy show "Saturday Night Live" when Yeezy performed it live.
Aside from "I Am a God", West also debuted two new tracks from the album, with one most likely to be entitled "On Site" and the other still untitled as of the live performance. Alongside his new music, the soon-to-be-father also dropped a few of his classics, "Clique", "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Power".
