Kanye West recently likened the Bible to themes from the popular Matrix film franchise, one day after announcing that his eighth studio album would be titled "So Help Me God."
The 37-year-old rap and fashion mogul, spoke at Oxford University's Museum of Natural History on March 2. While speaking about his creative stream of consciousness, classism and elitism, West also managed to speak about applying the Bible to his own life.
"There's a Bible saying, 'No weapon formed against me shall prosper'. Recently I've been doing interviews and I've had to go back to this verse because I don't think there's a living celebrity with more weapons formed against them, but I also don't think there's one more prosperous," West said, in his speech, according to Oxford's The Tab. "So what weapons have prospered? The smoke and mirrors of other opinions." more >>
