"God" (stylized as "GOD.") is a song by American rapper Kendrick Lamar, from his fourth studio album Damn, released on April 14, 2017. The thirteenth and penultimate track on the album, the song was written by Lamar, Ricci Riera, Mark Spears, aka Sounwave, DJ Dahi, Daniel Tannenbaum, Ronald LaTour and Anthony Tiffith, and produced by Riera, Sounwave, DJ Dahi, Bëkon, Cardo, and Tiffith.
The song details Lamar's successes, how it feels, and why he works so hard to get to where he is today. The song also finds Lamar declaring his faux-divinity as a rap god.
Before the release of Damn, the album itself was rumored to be centered around God. It was soon confirmed by Lamar himself. Lamar has been a devout Christian his entire life.
According to Jake Woolf of GQ magazine, Lamar trolls Canadian musician and rapper Drake by imitating his singing voice on the song's chorus.
