Watch: Kanye Debut New Songs — 'I Am A God', 'Send It Up' and 'Onsite'

We felt confused when a snippet of Kanye screaming "I AM A GOD" while wearing a jewel-encrusted execution mask appeared online from his Met Ball performance. It made a little more sense when we learned that 'I Am A God' is actually the name of one of his songs from his upcoming Yeezus album (the jewel-encrusted execution mask is still slightly confusing, but it's probably just Fashion). Over the weekend, the lord of rap debuted the song in full during his set at the New York Governor's Ball festival. My favourite lyric is definitely, "Hurry up with my damn croissants, I am a God," which is what I think 99% of the time that I'm at a cafe.

A mask-less Kanye also debuted 'Send It Up', his collaboration with Travis Scott, which sounds like Skrillex crossed with Nine Inch Nails.

Kanye yelled "new shit" into the microphone before unveiling experimental industrial trance anthem 'Onsite'.

He also played 'Black Skinhead' and 'New Slaves', which he recently premiered live on Saturday Night Live.
