Kanye West has found himself at the center of controversy again because of a rumored alternative cover for his upcoming album, Yeezus, that recently hit the net.
If the rumors are correct, the controversial cover features a cartoonized Kanye hanging from a cross in the same way the Bible describes Jesus was nailed to a cross. The image has incited outrage among members of the Christian faith, and has been called a “disgrace” and “blasphemous” by religious groups and even the hip-hop star’s fans.
No word yet from Kanye’s camp about the legitimacy of the alleged alternative cover, but the “Stronger” rapper previously showed off a different Yeezus cover on social media sites. The album is set for release on June 18.
