"God Level" is an unreleased song by Kanye West intended for his scrapped Yeezus 2 album, and later So Help Me God. The track was premiered in an Adidas TV advertisement [1] released on May 24, 2014 as part of their World Cup campaign.

According to producer Hudson Mohawke on Twitter, God Level was produced by West and 88-Keys, with additional production by Mohawke, Mike Dean, and Noah Goldstein.

On July 18, 2019, the full version of the track was leaked online. Cut on May 22, 2014, the song is divided into three distinct sections, each drastically different from the other. The main section of the track, which was featured in the advertisement, contains a sample from Dick Hyman's 1969 track "Kolumbo". West can be heard rapping his verses during this section. The next section has West singing over a droning synthesizer before returning to the "Kolumbo" sample. Finally, the track ends with a slowed down sample of "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)" by Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye.
