Now as fans of music we all have our favorites and some idolize in terms of living and character. We often familiarize ourselves and relate to musical content that they released where we feel it applies. Well this Kanye fan went and took it a step further by creating his own “Yeezus” Religion. The creator speaks on “Yeezianity”:
Right now, it’s just an idea. I only created this a month ago, so we’ll see where it goes. The idea has yet to get out there. Who knows what could come this way? But it’s an idea, and before anything can manifest, it has to start as an idea. In a lot of ways, after I created it, I reflected on it and thought that this was just a rehashing of Christianity, but just throwing Yeezus instead of Jesus… And you know what? That’s why I felt Kanye did it. He just put the name there. Jesus has all this baggage and all these connotations, and Yeezus is this new thing—and that’s why I say in the “Our Savior” part of the site, “We don’t speak of his public persona.” Because Yeezus is when Kanye elevates to that God-level, which I feel like we all have the potential to do. That’s why if it takes off, in the future, people would forget Kanye and his antics, and instead focus on what the message is.
With this they have 5 Pillars that they follow:
1. All things created must be for the good of all
2. No human being’s right to express themselves must ever be repressed
3. Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange
4. Man possesses the power to create everything he wants and needs
5. All human suffering exists to stimulate the creative powers of Man
This apparent thought started with Kanye “College Dropout” album. Thus makes him feel like he is Yeezus “Successor”:
But I’m not the type of fan who collects everything that he does. I don’t just listen to his music. I study it. I base what I’m doing and use his work as an example. In the world now, with Twitter and social media, I feel like people are just consuming and consuming, but I don’t just want to consume what Kanye does. I aspire to do that. I want to create off of it. I want to follow what he’s doing. That’s why I say I’m his successor.
It’s no surprise that with this he hopes to bring controversy and some day meet Yeezus himself.
