Yes, "I Am A God" seemingly features God Himself. On iTunes and Spotify, the Creator is billed as a featured artist on the track. Don't believe it? Check out the iTunes listing below:
West is not known for keeping his ego in check, so the God listing on the album may just be another name for 'Ye himself.
Listen to the track here and hear for yourself. Is it God or just a rapper with a big ego?
The Lord's reps had no comment on the guest spot.
The featured artist is not the only thing that's catching on about "I Am A God." A curious line has now gone viral: "Hurry up, where my damn croissants?"
The lyric has quickly become a fan favorite, garnering up memes all around the web, mocking the rather goofy line. Photos of croissants and Kanye West in different situations are rampant. But one this is for certain:
In other Yeezus and "I Am A God" news, despite the leak, West and his crew continued with their viral marketing as planned. Last night, the official video of West's American Psycho-inspired promotional video debuted on his website.
The gory shot-for-shot remake of the 2000 Bret Easton Ellis film made its way around YouTube last week, after a projection in Los Angeles was caught on tape.

The clip features Disick as Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman, while Cheban takes on Jared Leto's role as the drugged, uninterested Paul Allen. Kanye West's Yeezus takes the place of Huey Lewis and The News' Fore!
The Yeezus news keeps flooding in on the official release date. Yeezus was released today on Def Jam records and is available for purchase at record stores and digital distributors. Surprisingly, the album is also available for streaming for free on Spotify.
