Is Kanye’s Song [New GOD Flow] Blasphemous? [Blasphemy is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence.] The answer is NO. Unless ofcourse you are a Christian who believes in God…or power in the name of Jesus Christ [John 14:13-14].
The song opens up with someone singing a spiritual [mocking church]. I already know what people defending the song are gonna say [call me Dionne Warwick on this one] but in any case, how could I not address this? I’ll get right to it. The most inflammatory lyrics:
Welcome to Sunday service if you hope to someday serve us
We got green in our eyes, just follow my Erick Sermon
Did Moses not part the water with the cane?
Did strippers not make an arc when I made it rain?
Did Yeezy not get signed by Hov and Dame?
And ran to Jacob and made the new Jesus chains?
In Jesus name, let the choir say
“I’m on fire, ay,” that’s what Richard Pryor say
And we annihilate anybody that violate
Ask any dope boy you know, they admire ‘Ye
So, Kanye continues to clarify his position on Christianity now. Pusha T however attempts to somewhat distance himself from the controversy with his opening lines, sort of:
I believe there’s a God above me
I’m just the god of everything else
I put holes in everything else
“New God Flow,” f*ck everything else
But Ye threw in a few lines that just thoroughly confused me. Was this a shot at Whitney Houston, a salute to a secret society or just poorly placed words?:
I’m living three dreams:
Biggie Smalls’, Dr. King’s, Rodney King’s
Cuz we can’t get along, no resolution
Till we drown all these haters, rest in peace to Whitney Houston
Cars, money, girls and the clothes
Aww man, you sold your soul
Naww man, mad people was frontin’
Aww man, made something from nothing
Interesting to note that the song samples a vocal from Ghostface Killah. It’s not a secret that Wu Tang don’t believe in “white” Jesus and the whitewashing of religion for systemic control over the class system in the U.S.
I am also aware that the 5 percenters believe that the black man is god. That is a whole other blog for another day which I will eventually get around to… but this trendy diss Jesus talk is starting to get to me. It got me lookin’ for the next response record from Bizzle. Ye aint preachin’ no 5 percent.
