Praise YEEZUS! Here are the most 'Ye-like moments... EVER.
Kanye West Stans!! It's been quite the week for you. Not only did the all-time great rapper/producer/fashion designer/visual artist/voice of a generation become a father (still waiting on that baby name, BTW), but he's also just released a new album that's going to CHANGE THE WORLD: Yeezus, dropping TODAY. (Well, even though apparently some of ya'll may have already heard it.) In celebration of the second coming (well, technically sixth, since this is album No. 6), we thought, why not take a walk down memory lane? So of course we've compiled 10 of the most Kanye-est moments EVER. Because in our wildest dreams, Yeezy would read this and fire off 20 tweets and delete them the next day. If only!!!
1). When Kanye named his new album Yeezus: There has to be a certain amount of... hubris, shall we say, in naming your album Yeezus. Putting yourself in the same breath as someone who could rise from the dead and is lord to millions of people and... OK, we see where you came up with that. This is something ONLY Kanye could do. Because we sincerely doubt that One Direction will drop 1Deezus next year.
2). When Kanye named a song "I Am A God" on Yeezus: See above. (Also, according to the track list, the song features "God.") But, to be fair, Kanye DID say that "Yeezus" was his "god name" at a recent listening party. In some twisted, ridiculous way, that totally makes sense to us! We all have our nicknames! So, Kanye isn't necessarily comparing himself to the Almighty, but rather, one of many gods. Less blasphemous, yet still egotistical. That's our Kanye!
