Ain't no way I'm givin' up. I'm a god

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


Here Kanye speaks through Justin Vernon, and creates an interesting lyrical wordplay throughout the song: he establishes himself as a god, while also acknowledging the existence and importance of the biblical God. So in this line, he’s saying that there’s no way going to give up on himself, and neither is there any way he’ll ever give up on God, either. Neither himself nor God gives up.

In either case, belief is the driving force.

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
— Jeremiah 32:27
