Album review: JESUS IS KING by Kanye West
JESUS IS KING
I remembered what the day was like when JESUS IS KING dropped. It was a somewhat chilly morning. I just woke up and I was immediately notified of its release. I didn’t even bother getting food to eat; JESUS IS KING was my breakfast that day. And did it fill me up? Well, to put it simply, it satisfied my hunger, but that’s all it did.
I do find it enthralling to have an album based off of a religious theme. In essence, this album is Yeezy’s form of worship. And with that, I have no problem with. But as a listener, having to wait for almost a year in anticipation was arduous. This album still screams Kanye as a musician, but in my opinion, it isn’t as paramount as his previous releases.
All in all, this album represents Kanye as a newfound Christian man. From College Dropout, to Yeezus, and JESUS IS KING, devout Kanye fans will find the growth of Yeezus as a second coming of his music as a whole.
