Through electronic production, “I Am a God” displays a wondrous exhibit of Kanye’s charisma (or arrogance, depending on how you feel about him), which stems from the album title, Yeezus. Through shooting synths, squeals, and mushed bass, Kanye revels in all the negativity he has endured from media, and the hate received for everything from his fashion sense to brand of hip-hop. The pained screams toward the end of this track make this one teeter towards horrorcore. Justin Vernon’s contribution to the ending of this monstrous song haunts as well.
This intro contains samples of dancehall legend Capleton’s hit song “Forward Inna Dem Clothes.”
Somewhere in the song (nobody seems to know where), Manna Dey and Asha Bhosle’s cut “Are Zindagi Hai Khel,” from the 1972 Bollywood movie, Seeta aur Geeta is sampled.
