You guys heard about how SUPER PUNK the Met Ball was, right? Well, it feels like Kanye West was tapping into the raw, primal energy of Heroin, Antioch Arrow and other Gravity Records bands when he debuted new material at a special performance on Monday night.

You guys heard about how SUPER PUNK the Met Ball was, right? Well, it feels like Kanye West was tapping into the raw, primal energy of Heroin, Antioch Arrow and other Gravity Records bands when he debuted new material at a special performance on Monday night.

A vine posted to A-Trak’s account shows three or four primal “Kanyells” (hat-tip to Vulture), one of which has him screaming “I AM A GOD”:

On top of that, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Thomas Bangalter (one half of Daft Punk) talked about his time in the studio with Yeezy, and said that Kanye’s new material is “very raw…[h]e was rapping — kind of screaming primally.”

Between that, the masks, and the straightjacket he wore on stage, yeah, I’d say Kanye’s new record is going to be pretty dark. Get stoked, Moss Icon fans.
