Lawd! Let us all pray! Kanye West has his own bible version.
There’s a new version of the holy bible, however God isn’t mentioned at all. In fact, God’s name has been replaced with “Kanye” or “Yeezus.” – seriously, I’m not making this up.
“At it’s simplest, it is the book of Genesis, modified to feature ‘Kanye’ or ‘Yeezus’ in the place of God or Y—A. ‘In the beginning Kanye created the heaven and the earth…And Kanye said, Let there be light: and there was light,” said authors. “In a sense, Kanye’s awesome and orchestrated spectacle is truly a religious experience. In a foreword, we explore our consumerist, quick-fix, and information-culture, and celebrate Kanye and the outsized significance he plays in our lives. All of this, bound in a black, hard-cover gold-leaf imprinted book.
Fans have taken their love for the mega-music-icon to another level. The 37-year-old rapper has a few die-hard fans to thank for this new book. A group of three entrepreneurial brothers are now selling The Book of Yeezus on their online store for only $20. The Kanye West-themed bible is “a novelty coffee-table book, celebrating the grandeur of mega-icon Kanye West. This is the Bible for the New Age.”
The question everyone wants to know is why??? Of course they have answers.
“Each generation champions a superstar so consistently relevant that they come to accompany that generation through it’s evolution, being a part of and ultimately shaping its identity,” write the creators of the book on their Etsy page. They also mentioned past superstars in the same vein as Yeezus such as Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson. However, Kanye represents a spiritual, cultural figure for millennials.
