Yeezus has competition: a new self-deifying Chicago rapper, who goes simply by God. His new video for “God vs Devil,” a song with a beat that sounds like the grimmest overture from a goth version of the Nutcracker Suite, is intense and to-the-point. God’s delivery has bits of Gunplay’s rasping , I ain’t shit intensity, Nicki Minaj’s frenzied lapses into gruffnes and a fallen-angel fervor that—perhaps for drama, perhaps serious—falls somewhere between Pusha T and The Devil’s Harbinger. His Before The Bible tape, sure to be a wholly unique entry into Chicago’s rap landscape, is due out January 29th. Meanwhile, his The Bible project is up for stream and download now.
