STRYPER Frontman Comments On KANYE WEST's 'I Am A God'

Vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet of Christian hard rockers STRYPER has commented on hip hop artist Kanye West's decision to call his new album "Yeezus" and having a track called "I Am A God", with a humorously added "featuring God" credit listed.

Said Sweet in a statement released to TMZ.com: "First of all, and with all due respect, how is it possible for Kanye to claim that God is a featured guest on his new record when God is a contracted member of our band, STRYPER? Everyone knows that God is in STRYPER and we could be looking at a serious legal issue here:-)

"In all seriousness, I think what Kanye may be trying imply is that God is a 'featured guest' on his new record in terms of Kanye's relationship and deep faith in God. When you believe in God, you want Him to be a part of everything you do, guiding you through the entire process. So, I get that and understand what is meant.

"I would love though for Kanye to be a little more specific about the exact tracks that God performed on his record. I've always wondered — is God a drummer, a bassist, a guitarist or a singer? I'm guessing The Master of all."

"I Am a God" closes with the verses, "I just talked to Jesus/he said, 'What up, Yeezus?'/I said 'Shit, I'm chilling/trying to stack these millions'/I know he's the most high, but I am a close high."
