To celebrate Good Friday 2014, an unknown street artist has decided to honor Kanye West in arguably the most sacrilegious way possible. A mural depicting the rapper as Jesus on the cross has just been spotted in Los Angeles.
There is not a signature or tag where the artist credits themself but the piece was however named “The New Messiah?” Whether it is intended to be sarcasm is anyone’s guess.
This isn’t Kanye’s first controversial association with religion (nor will it likely be his last). His monumental debut album The College Dropout featured the song “Jesus Walks,” which touched on the rapper’s battle to keep things successful while being sanctified.
His most recent studio album seemingly abandoned the fear of God, as it was named Yeezus. The album’s spectacle (“I’m a God”) eventually spawned a religion in his honor titled Yeezianity. No word if the
cult followers has since backslid from their pulpit.
Check out the pics of the Kanye West Easter art in the gallery. They could have at least gave him a pair of Yeezy’s to rock, though. Right?
