I know he the most high
But I am a close high

from Kanye West – I Am a God Lyrics on Rap Genius


With Jesus being the son of God, Kanye acknowledges him as the “most high”, however he views himself as a close second.

But… didn’t he say that the most high was Allah? Maybe he’s disregarding orthodox religions and saying that Allah, Jesus, etc. are all just names for the same god… or maybe he just uses the name that rhymes…

This line also refers to Psalm 82:6, which states, “I said, ‘You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;’”
