Jesus Walks: When Rappers Liken Themselves to Christ
Ab-Soul is gearing up for the June 24 release of his new album These Days, and the advanced cover art for the albumshows the Carson, Calif. MC covered in blood and sitting underneath a cross, resembling Jesus Of Nazareth while wearing a crown of thorns.
He also released a video from the project called "Stigmata," where the TDE rapper discusses his trials and tribulations and walks across a turbulent path carrying a cross like the son of God. A bold visual.
But Ab's not the first to project Christ-like images in his album artwork and videos, read on for more rappers who've been inspired by The Anointed One. — Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
