Will Kanye West’s New Album Be Called ‘I Am God’?
You could say Kanye West is on a brief hiatus in regards to his music, but we think he should be on a long-term hiatus from naming things.
Last week, it came to light that he wants to name his unborn child North West and now there are rumors flying that he wants to name his sixth solo studio album ‘I Am God.’ Please, God, no.
This rumor could be totally baseless (we hope!), seeing as there was already false info flying around that his followup to ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,’ would be titled ‘Rich Black American.’ What’s giving heed to this album title is a rather cryptic tweet courtesy of The Roots‘ Questlove:
I Am God…. (you’ll get it later)

If anyone knows anything about Kanye’s album, it’s probably Questlove. Just sayin’!
So far, details on Yeezy’s next album are pretty few and far between, but we do know he’ll be working with The-Dream on his next LP, though the producer said, said, “I’ve been told to zip it.” Back in February, West also told a crowd in Paris that he has new material due out in “a couple months,” though we have reason to believe his album won’t be out until at least this summer as he is spending two months in Paris to work on both his fashion and music.
We’re ready when you are Kanye, but please, change the name of your album because we know you’re not being cheeky!
