Kanye West has updated his website to reveal in-studio footage of him recording “I Am A God” with producers Rick Rubin and Mike Dean. Stylistically, the video features a similar minimalistic feel to the artwork for Kanye’s new album, Yeezus.
Presumably this is taken from Kanye’s session with Rubin and Dean in Malibu earlier this month, which West detailed in a recent interview with The New York Times.
“For him, it’s really just inside of him,” Kanye said of working with Rubin. “I’m still just a kid learning about minimalism, and he’s a master of it. It’s just really such a blessing, to be able to work with him. I want to say that after working with Rick, it humbled me to realize why I hadn’t — even though I produced Watch the Throne; even though I produced Dark Fantasy — why I hadn’t won Album of the Year yet.”
Watch the video here. Then, look out for Yeezus on June 18th via Def Jam.
