This time, it was the Nevermind classics ‘Come As You Are’ and ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ that Yeezy made-over with the help of his gospel choir, replacing some of Kurt Cobain’s iconic angst-ridden grunge poetry with lyrics about God and Jesus Christ.
E.g. ‘Come as You Are’ saw the lines “Take a rest / as a friend / as an old Memoria” replaced with “Just confess/ he’ll do the rest/ Christ is here / Hallelujah”.
Of course, Yeezy has previously professed his love for Nirvana and Kurt Cobain by sampling them on his collaborative album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts.
“I’m going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not,” he once infamously boasted in an interview. “I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain. The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don’t think that I would be one of the characters of today’s modern Bible?”
It comes after his special Easter Sunday Service at Coachella earlier this year.
