London: Kanye West has reportedly named his new album ` Yeezus` - a combination of his nickname Yeezy and Jesus.

The father-to-be chose the particular title after dropping the idea of calling the record ` I Am God `, which he is still planning to use that for a single, the Sun reported.

The rapper had earlier posed in a crown of thorns and said: "I am God`s vessel, but my greatest pain in life is I will never be able to see myself perform live."
