Kanye West wants to name new album 'I Am God'

New York, Mar. 27 (ANI): Kanye West is raising eyebrows again with a rumour that he will be naming his sixth studio album 'I Am God.'

According to BBC News, the album title is "half tongue-in-cheek" and appears to be the first confirmation that the 35-year-old rapper is planning to release a new album for 2013, the New York Post reported.

The rapper has ruffled some feathers with religious imagery before. In February, he and his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian imitated the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.

West also posed as Jesus on a January 2006 cover of Rolling Stone wearing a crown of thorns. (ANI)
