Kanye West Poses as Jesus ?!?



And he says he is addicted to Porn. Thats a new take on Jesus.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/people_kanye_west

Do you think he is trying to be the next Tupac Shakur with the messages in his songs, on politics, woman and other subjects?

I think Tupac is over-rated 'cos he died young.

Public Enemy - they were the real deal. Old skool.

Yes public enemy is great but Tupac's messages had meaning and he didn't boast about being the greatest like Kanye West.

I mean Kanye is copying Tupace. Remember when Tupac Released "Makeveli" he was posing as Jesus on a cross.

Kanye's a genius.

an arrogant genius, but at least he's got the chops to back it up.

it's a nice cover, and appropriate given the lyrics to "jesus walks."

as for messages, you'll find fewer hip-hop songs with the social commentary of Diamonds from Sierra Leone:

[q]Good Morning, this ain't Vietnam still
People lose hands, legs, arms for real
Little was known of Sierra Leone
And how it connect to the diamonds we own
When I speak of Diamonds in this song
I ain't talkin bout the ones that be glown
I'm talkin bout Rocafella, my home, my chain
These ain't conflict diamonds,is they Jacob? don't lie to me mayne
See, a part of me sayin' keep shinin',
How? when I know of the blood diamonds
Though it's thousands of miles away
Sierra Leone connect to what we go through today
Over here, its a drug trade, we die from drugs
Over there, they die from what we buy from drugs
The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charmses
I thought my Jesus Piece was so harmless
'til I seen a picture of a shorty armless
And here's the conflict
It's in a black person's soul to rock that gold
Spend ya whole life tryna get that ice
On a polar rugby it look so nice
How could somethin' so wrong make me feel so right, right?
'fore I beat myself up like Ike
You could still throw ya Rocafella diamond tonight, 'cause
[/q]



and that's just the first verse.

Public Enemy destroys Tupac. Tupac was good though, and yes he was just as arrogant.

Here are some lyrics from Tupac

Never B Peace ()
[Verse 1: Tupac]

Now of course I want peace on the streets

But realistically
Painting perfect pictures ain't never work
My
misery was so deep
Couldn't sleep through all my pressures
In my quest
for cash
I learned fast
Using violent measures
Memories of
adolescent years
Their was unity
But after puberty we brought war
To
our community
So many bodies dropping
Its gotta stop
I want to help

But still I'm stepping
Keeping my weapon
Must protect myself
The
promise of a better tomorrow
ain't never reach me
Plus my teachers were
to petrified in class to teach me
Sipping thunderbird
And grape kool-aid

Calling Earl since my stomach was empty
It seduced me to fuck the world

Watch my 'lil homies
Lose there childhood to guns
Nobody cries no
more
Cause we all die for fun
So why you ask me if I want peace
If
you cant grant it
Niggas fighting across the whole planet
So we can
never be peace

[Chorus]

Will there ever be peace?
Or
all we all just headed for doom,
Still consumed by the beefs,
And I know
there never be peace,
That's why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets

Cause there can never be peace

[Verse 2: Kastro]


Somebody owes me
Will they control me?, nah
I ain't a hater
playa
But I want all you got
Your babies have babies
Now we fighting
each other
My dogs got rabies
They biting each other
'n' it ain't
hard to find a friend like mine
Big fully is a bully
And he don't mind
dying
And I gotta be bright
Miss sign after sign
Time after time

After time after time
And I don't like nobody
They don't like me
more
And I'm cool with that finally
But they heard it before
Dog

We living in a prison
Losing our religion on em
Thanks given when
thankful just for living in hell
Damn homey I don't mean to be harsh
But it's the devil in the ghetto trying to tear it apart
And if we make it up
out
We still stuck in the dark
Will there ever be peace?
Just the
peace in my heart
Never

[Kastro talking]
The only peace we
got
Is the peace in our heart
Or the peace in our mind
Right there
in piece that we hold in our waste line
Feel me dog?
Cm'on


[Chorus]

Will there ever be peace?
Or all we all just
headed for doom,
Still consumed by the beefs,
And I know there never be
peace, (never)
Thats why I keep my pistol when I walk the streets
'Coz
there can never be peace

[Verse 3: Napolean]

Things are
changing
Nigga you better fantasize
I'm only concerned about me and mine
in these times
The world is a ghetto where peace is not a part of it
We
all goin' need God if we plan to get out of this
Niggas spending too much
time hating on each other
Niggas buyin' guns
Load em up
Aim at each
other
And the victim is you and me
The secret is true indeed
The
good die
Mostly over bullshit
Repeatedly
Deep in me there's a part
that wants nothing but love
But the rest of me knows war is what's waiting
for us
So I stays ready
Keep my pay heavy and boss up
Stack my funds
and my guns
Never rely on luck
Asking God to point out the imposters

Never let no weapon formed against me prosper
Cause they'll never be
peace
So don't rely on it
Soldiers die for
And in the ghetto, they
trying for it
FUCK PEACE

[Chorus X3]

Will there ever
be peace?
Or all we all just headed for doom,
Still consumed by the
beefs,
And I know there never be peace,
That's why I keep my pistol when
I walks the streets
Cause there can never be peace

[Tupac
Talking]

Shit, fuck peace
On the strength till my niggas get a
piece
We cant have peace
How the fuck we gonna live happy if we ain't
got none?
You motherfuckers is smiling, but I'm mean mugging
Why? Cause
gotta be thugging
I've seen drugs done turned this motherfucking hood out

All us niggas acting up
Wild ass motherfucking adolescents
These
niggas ain't even got no childhoods no more
How the fuck can you have a
childhood and you have a funeral every motherfucking weekend
And you
motherfuckers talking about peace?
Nigga, it ain't no motherfucking peace

You ain't seen the news motherfucker?
You ain't heard?
Little babies
getting smoked
Motherfuckers killing there whole family
'Lil kids
getting thrown off buildings
Motherfuckers gettin abused
Peace? Niggas
you out your motherfucking mind?
Fuck peace
We can't never have peace,
till you motherfuckers clean up this mess you made
'Till u fucking clean up
the dirt u dropped
'Till we get a piece
Fuck peace
Westside


Let me see some representing from Public Enemy.

I don't think Jesus would go for Pam Anderson

If Bono posed like that I can imagine the uproar, I can't imagine he ever would
