Kanye West’s sixth album is finally upon us. Both controversial and talented, Mr. West has once again stirred the pot by naming his 10-track work Yeezus
, a play off of Jesus.
It's no secret that he is also a religious man, and means no disrespect, but nonetheless, some people were deeply disturbed at the fact that he would call his current project such a thing.
Like it or not, his music has always spoken for itself, and it speaks high volumes to his fans.
So in honor of Yeezus
, the album with no artwork, here are eight religiously themed Hip-Hop album covers from the past.
The most recent of all the covers, The Game thought it would be cool to depict Jesus as a chain-wearing individual with a red badana tied around his face for the 2102 release of Jesus Piece
Released back in 2009 through his website, Fif donned some angel wings with the sole intention of reeking havoc throughout the city, from a verbal standpoint of course with his War Angel LP
One of the most commonly used phrases around, Master P took it, and put it on a bigger stage for this gold-selling 1999 release, while also taking the liberty to go with a cross instead of his face for the artwork.
The God MC played up to his moniker for the 1999 release of The Seventh Seal
, giving people a look at how the chosen one should appear. Sand seeping through his hands and all.
The artist formally known as Ruck, took listeners on a lyrical fast with Jesus Price Supastar,
posing on the album cover in front of what appears to be church doors.
Probably the most famous album cover of them all, Tupac had people talking about the illuminati way before it was cool with Makaveli
Hands down, the most recognizable car passenger of them all, The Clipse made sure that the Lord was with them every step of the way during their debut album.
