The Kanye West “New Testament” was released on Tuesday, an epic 34-minute video diatribe. The rapper essentially presents the world according to Kanye, explaining why he’s a “god” who wants to “help” people.


“I, right now, have the most powerful voice by a mile,” he declares, “and I’m going to use that.” West goes on, “Did I not become the biggest rock star on the planet? Did I not influence all musicians? Did I not go and get the exact girl that I want? Did I not start my family? Did I not ruffle the feathers of two presidents?”

The video mixes artistic and historic footage with audio of many of West’s infamous media quotes to make a spoken-word documentary. And there’s so much more.

Last week, West’s camp refuted rumors that “New Testament” was a surprise new album. It remains unclear whether this video is an official West project — or created by someone else.

Of course, it wouldn’t be surprising if it was indeed a West creation. The performer is known for putting extreme effort into music videos, even ranting in the past about losing at the MTV Video Music Awards. His most famous, or infamous, depending on your point of view, video in recent history would undoubtedly be his clip for “Bound 2.” Released last year, it features a topless Kim Kardashian.
