Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West may now really believe he is a god as reports claim a group of people have started a religion based on him called Yeezianity.
The overnight religious group have detailed five main points which embody every Yeezian.
An anonymous group of people have taken that song pretty literally, it seems, because they’ve formed an official religion centered around Kanye called Yeezianity. According to its website, the group “believes that the one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity.” “We could be anyone you know, from your mailman to the mayor of your city,” the website says. Here are the religion’s five pillars: 1. All things created must be for the good of all 2. No human being’s right to express themselves must ever be repressed 3. Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange 4. Man possesses the power to create everything he wants and needs 5. All human suffering exists to stimulate the creative powers of Man (TIME)
The person responsible for starting the church of Yeezus has decided to remain in the shadows but explained what motivated Yeezianity.
“First of all, he is the most honest person in our culture. He has the highest moral standards and highest integrity. He is the most creative person. And as it’s typical with creative people, he gets a lot of flack from the lower minded masses. It’s not even that they don’t like him, it’s that they don’t know what he’s doing because the press gives it this negative spin all the time.” (Vice)
Last September, Ye said he questioned why people had problems with him declaring himself a religious figure but not a more stereotypical figure on his “I Am A God” track.
“When someone comes up and says something like, ‘I am a god,’ everybody says, ‘Who does he think he is?’ I just told you who I thought I was. A god. I just told you, that’s what I think I am. Would it have been better if I had a song called ‘I am a n*gga?’ Or if I had a song that said ‘I am a gangster?’ Or if I had a song that said ‘I am a pimp.’ All those colors and patinas fit better on a person like me, right? But to say you are a god? Especially when you got shipped over to the country that you’re in and your last name is a slave owner’s. ‘How could you say that? How could you have that mentality?'” (BBC Radio 1)
Over the summer, religious musician Sonny Sandoval felt Mr. West only caused harm with his Yeezus LP’s release.
In the God department … Kanye West is as phony as a $2 bill — according to a very religious lead singer of a very religious nu-metal band. Christian rocker Sonny Sandoval — famous for songs like “Alive” and “Youth of the Nation” — feels Kanye has committed blasphemy for writing and singing “I am a God” on his “Yeezus” album. Sonny says, “Kanye West deceives many and will lead many people astray.” To hammer his point home … Sonny quotes Matthew 7:15-23 — Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
