Ever the polarizing figure, Kanye West pushed the envelope even further with the release of his "Yeezus" album. The official tracklist to the rapper's album only lists one collaborator: "God," a feature on West's song "I Am A God."

West's crediting of God on the album left some listeners confused and others offended.

Now, a member of Christian band Stryper is weighing in. Michael Sweet, frontman of the metal band, spoke to TMZ about West's tracklisting for "I Am A God," evaluating the 36-year-old rapper's intent. "When you believe in God, you want Him to be a part of everything you do, guiding you through the entire process," Sweet told TMZ. "So, I understand what is meant."

West recently came under fire for another song off of his "Yeezus" album. In a track called "On Sight," West raps, "A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this b— shaking like Parkinson's." The American Parkinson Disease Association took issue with the song, calling the lyrics "distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance."
