It's alleged that Kanye West is naming his daughter North and his new album "I Am God."

Kanye West has recently had a couple of rumors surrounding him that involve strange names he has given his daughter and his upcoming album. It is rumored that West plans to name his and Kim Kardashian’s unborn child North and that he was planning on naming his next album “I Am God.” He was once one of the most humble talents in the industry. His dated albums are considered modern day classics and he was once considered one of the most talented artists in the industry.

Kanye West is the man that brought us a number of hit records with deep meanings such as “Through The Wire,” “Jesus Walks,” and “Diamonds from Sierra Leone”. However, it seemed that after the crossover to mainstream success of “Gold Digger,” West was more interested in reaching the Pop charts and leaving behind the former humble, politically charged persona. His antics have increasingly become strange but his craft seems to improve with each new release. Are fans simply at the mercy of his tortured psyche’?

West is known for publicly expressing his emotions. During the lead up to the release of his fourth studio album, “808’s and Heartbreak,” West donned a more somber style of dress and released singles tinged with pain, regret and heartache. Quite frankly, West is going against a lot of the things that he spoke against when he first arrived on the music scene. It appears as if he has changed  from being a respectable political figure to become a more profitable face. The relationship with Kim Kardashian, the pregnancy, the name of the child and the name of the album are only making him the topic of conversation and bringing him to the attention of an ever wider audience. I the track titled “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” he shows a hint of guilt for changing up his style: “I guess the money should have changed him, I guess I should have forgot where I came from.”

Do you revere Kanye West as a “sell out”?

  1. Kanya is all to himself.. He is pretty much self made and owes no one a thing. When you make it like that you can and should do the same. I don't like him as a person but his music is tight.
