Critically-acclaimed rapper and Donald Trump supporter, Kanye West, is leaning towards becoming a messiah these days.
After the release of his much-anticipated, yet extremely delayed album, "Jesus is King", West is now aiming for a "different" kind of tour.
According to a report from TMZ, West is going to push boundaries, and the tour will not be "anything anyone has seen." The unique tour will have a lot of rule-breaking and rule-bending features, which fans are very excited to see.
According to reports, the format of West's Sunday Service at Coachella last Spring will serve as a pillar to the production. However, it's still missing the bigger picture.
The "Jesus is King" tour, according to TMZ's sources, is meant for all types of indoor and outdoor venue and is versatile enough to fit in any space.
While there is still no official start date for the tour, TMZ said that it will be a global tour. This means fans around the world will be able to join.
On Friday, the popular gossip site spotted the rapper and asked him when the start of the tour was, and his answer was, "right away."
When asked about how the stage would look like, West was quiet but said it will be different than the floating stage design featured in his Saint Pablo Tour.
The "Jesus is King" tour is going to be West's first tour since his "Saint Pablo 2016" tour which was notoriously cut short after a hospitalization led the rapper to address his mental health first. It was reported that the tour grossed $31.7 million.
Yeezus' Surprise Album Drop
On October 25, West made an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to talk about his "Jesus is King" album on the day of its scheduled release.
Seemingly frustrated, Jimmy Kimmel asked, "When is this album coming out? Is it coming out tomorrow?"
West replied, "It's gonna be dropping at 12.. A.M."
Kimmel prodded, "So right now? It's available right now?"
With a wide grin, the Chicago-based rapper answered, "Oh, it's out now!"
Kanye West's Holy Hip-Hop Genre
Kanye's gospel-inspired rap highlights the complicated relationship between two distinct tensions of music established in black culture.
The genre known as gospel rap rose in the 1980s, not long after hip-hop itself, but it stayed in underground loops and obtained little formal industry support.
Thanks to West and fellow rapper, Chance the Rapper, the new holy hip-hop has resurfaced in mainstream music.
West's explicit faith on his 2004 hit "Jesus Walks" - -which highlighted gospel walls and aggressive beats -- did not stop playing on non-Christian radio, demonstrating a shift in the industry.
After "Jesus Walks," Chance popularized gospel-influenced hip-hop with his much-advertised 2016 album, "Coloring Book."
