American super star and rapper Kanye West has published his own version of the The Holy Bible as a show of his discountenance for the scripture. He named his scripture – The Book Of Yeeezus.
The book is based on The Book Of Genesis and the word of ‘God’ was replaced with ‘Kanye’ or ‘Yeezus’. As blasphemous and offensive this may appear to be, the creators argue that it’s only an “editorial art of
piece”. Other bi-name artists mentioned in the same capacity as Yeezy include Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson.
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. 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. 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.
