I am a god
Kanye’s American Psycho-inspired short film explicitly provides a clue to this song’s meaning.
Before killing Jeremy, the Patrick Bateman-inspired character (who channels Kanye West via the name on the pill bottle seen before the murder scene) talks directly about the song I Am a God:
And then, there’s a song “I Am a God.” The title practically speaks for itself. But of course, the insecurities of the mainstream music press will never understand its true meaning because it’s ABOUT ME!
The final monologue of American Psycho draws the strongest comparison to the apparent narcissism and vanity of “I Am a God”. They share insecurity, psychosis, extreme emotion and some degree of self-loathing.
