1. ‘I am a God’ (2013)
Tshepo Mokoena, Kanye expert at The Guardian, says...
‘Kanye’s generally at his best when either bragging without abandon or ripping into the harsh realities of class- and race-based discrimination. But let’s be honest: a millionaire’s bravado tends to work better than his socially conscious fare – and Ye exudes peak ego here, comparing himself to God while breathlessly demanding the speedy arrival of a few French pastries. Luckily, the song’s powerful enough to carry it all.’
