Skip to comments.Is Jay Z as Famous as God?

Im not a rap fan. But I know who Jay-Z is.
Hes sold 50 million CDs. Hes won 17 Grammy Awards. He has a net worth of $500 million, according to Forbes magazine. And, oh yes, hes married to Beyoncé, Billboards top female artist of the 2000s.
So, Jay Z just dropped his latest CD, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Magna Carta is a play on the rappers real name, Shawn Carter. Holy Grail? Well, thats where Jay Z offends this Christ followers sensibilities.
A review of the rap stars 12th studio album appears in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. I would never have seen it or read it (Im not a fan of Jann Wenners magazine, with its extreme liberal world view of not only popular culture, but also politics) except it was prominently featured on the landing page for Google news.
Jay Z is richer than God, Rolling Stone declared, and probably about as famous.
And the rapper, who sometimes refers to himself as HOVA (as in Jehovah), appears to believe the blasphemy; seems to think he descended from heaven.
And hes not the only pop star suffering delusions of deism.
Just last month, rapper Kanye West (known by cross-over audiences as Kim Kardasians baby daddy) released his latest CD, titled Yeezus. The album is no tribute to the son of the Most High, but to the rapper himself.
In fact, he pre-released a track from his album titled I Am A God. I suspect he only added A to the songs title at the behest of his record label (which was no doubt fearful the rapper would ignite protests from the evangelical community).
Then theres pop icon David Bowie, who released his comeback CD in May. In his music video for The Next Day, the title song for the album, Bowie plays Jesus, attending an orgiastic party with prostitutes and other attendees engaging in blood play.
Now some may think the blasphemies of Jay Z, Kanye West, David Bowie and other musical artists innocuous. They may think the Christian faithful ought not trouble itself about it.
But I believe thats what the ruler of this world as the authentic Jesus referred to our enemy, the devil wants us to think. The evil one uses secular music, produced by popular artists like Jay Z, Kanye West and David Bowie, to corrupt young and impressionable minds.
To make false gods of mortal men.
Indeed, a concept band calling itself the LaBiancas released a single last year titled Charles Manson is Jesus Christ. It was a musical tribute to Manson, whose disciples carried out as many as 35 murders, including Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, is available on iTunes, the bands record label reminds.
Then theres Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop, who said this past May Kurt Cobain is Jesus. That she dared to liken Cobain (who fronted the grunge rock group Nirvana, who blew his brains out in 1994) to the son of God proves the teen has no relationship with the Lord. And that may explain why she was so overcome with despair last month she tried to commit suicide.
The devil has thoroughly infiltrated the popular culture, using music, among other forms of entertainment, to corrupt the young and impressionable.
Through the music of such artists as Jay Z, Kanye West and David Bowie the enemy of humanity promulgates the falsehood that God, that Jesus, that the Holy Sprit may be blasphemed with impunity.
But the word of God warns that those who believe the devils lie have hell to pay.
The same goes for Jay Z, Kanye and other blaspheming musical artists.
Many “artists” share the Muslims’ hatred for the Risen Lord.
God will step on these cockroaches,and that will be the end of the story.
Other than seeing the name in headlines I couldn’t recognize him or any of his music.
His existence is immaterial to some of us.
I thought Jay Z was dead. Don’t all the rap stars get killed by their old gang members. Beyonce is pretty, I have no idea what any of her songs are.
Who’s Jay Z?
Jay-Z is the scum of the earth. Just remember that he was a personal guest of the President at the White House. He and the rest of most of the human offal in rap and hip hop are a bunch of vulgarity spewing misogynists. They come in under the radar because their filth can’t be revealed in public. Most of his lyrics can’t be mentioned or printed as they violate the rules of the airwaves and newspapers. Check out some of his lyrics. I don’t care how many millions of dollars he makes. He’s scum.
Jay Z will be answerable to God someday, so I pray he comes to faith in Christ.
I’ve heard of God but I have no idea who JayZ is.
Pity America that these dirtbags are elevated like this.
I don’t know who JZ is, and don’t want to know.
Ditto. I don’t know who he is, what he looks like, what he sounds like. where he came from, nor do I care. Period. Furthermore, what is a ‘Christian Diarist’s’ great interest in a soulless creature that has nothing to do with G-d or G-dly things?
Who’s Jay Z?
I’ve certainly heard of God.
I suspect I’m rather typical.
He’s not God, Kanye is. He said so. Yelling gibberish over other peoples records qualifies one as God today.
Let the world have their golden calf but there are consequences to idol worship!
Jay Z. who?
Maybe if you would provide his last name, I might know who he is.
