Rapper, Kanye West, has released his own bible called ‘The Book of Yeezus’.
The bible, reports said, is essentially the Book of Genesis, with the every mention of God replaced with ‘Kanye’ of ‘Yeezus’
A part reads: “In the beginning Kanye created the heaven and the earth… And Kanye said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
As discovered by Consequence of Sound, this ‘editorial art piece’ has been published by three US-based brothers who are selling the black hardcover book via Etsy for £13.77.
According to the brothers, The Book of Yeezus has not been produced to poke fun or even praise the rapper, but instead offers “a fresh take on what The Bible could look like in our modern world”.
“Each generation champions a superstar, so consistently relevant that they come to accompany that generation through it’s [sic] evolution, being a part of and ultimately shaping its identity,”
“Such past icons have been the likes of Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, or Michael Jackson. For this generation, Generation Y, Kanye West is not only its greatest spectacle, but in some senses, a spiritual figure.
“What if the Bible, the most singularly significant publication in the ancient canon of Western tradition, were updated to reflect our modern society? What would it look like? What we came up with was an interventionist art, coffee-table novelty, that will appeal to both Kanye fans everywhere and those made curious by this enormous cultural phenomenon.”
