In 2004, Kanye West dropped the iconic College Dropout track, ‘Jesus Walks.’ Fast-forward nearly a decade later, and he rapped about his ‘Jesus Piece’ alongside The Game and Common, and then released his Yeezus album. And in 2017, it appears that ‘Ye’s religious rhymes have come to life as he’s been transformed into a golden Jesus sculpture. The newly unveiled piece, created by Los Angeles-based street artist Plastic Jesus, paints a blinged-out Kanye as Jesus during crucifixion, Yeezy shoes included.


While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Plastic Jesus offered some insight into the piece, which he’s appropriately dubbed ‘False Idol.’ The artist went on to offer commentary on both ‘Ye and his fans, calling out those quick to put the rapper on a pedestal and also tear him down.

He’s a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him,’ Plastic Jesus said. ‘Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him.’
