Kanye West, Who Claims to Be Jesus, Debuts at #1 with His Profanity-Filled New Album

Kanye West

Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign's joint project Vultures 1 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Feb. 24), giving Ye his 11th leader and Ty his first. The set earned 148,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Feb. 15, according to Luminate, following its release on Feb. 10. 

In the last two years, West released music with Christian themes. In fact, his 2021 album Donda is still #1 at both Billboard's Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums charts. Two years ago, he also hosted "Sunday Services," which drew thousands for live events at American megachurches that starred different popular Christian leaders and Christian celebrities.  

However, on Vultures 1, we find a different West. Profanity fills the songs. "They served us the porn since the day we was born / Anybody pissed off, gotta make 'em drink the urine," the 46-year-old rapper recited during his song. 

"Now I'm Ye-Kelly, b-, now I'm Bill Cosby, b- / Now, I'm Puff Daddy rich, that's Me Too me rich."

After more verses filled with crude sexual references and a reference to pop star Taylor Swift, West states: "I'm the new Jesus, b-, I turn water to Cris.'"

The rapper mentions R&B singer R. Kelly and actor Bill Cosby, who have both suffered from degrading reputations after sexual assault allegations were brought up against them. Cosby's criminal conviction was later overturned, but he was found to be civilly liable for sexual assault.  Puff Daddy (Sean "Diddy" Combs) is another celebrity who has formerly had sexual assault accusations brought up against him.

West calling himself the "new Jesus" prompted criticism from Christian commentators on social media and responses from others seeking to defend the rapper.

"Kanye fans getting mad at Christians for calling him out only comes from emotions," Christian rapper Bryson Gray tweeted. "We are holding him to standards that he has publicly set for himself. You don't care how inconsistent he is ... cool That doesn't change the facts though."
