Kanye West compares himself to Moses from the Bible in cryptic post, hints he's not sleeping much
The rapper shared a cryptic message in which he seemed to compare himself in the same league as the Bible's Moses
ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Rapper Kanye West came up with a suspicious Instagram story on Sunday, September 18, where he compared himself to Moses in the holy bible. He also raised concerns over his lack of sleep on the Instagram story which had just a single line.
He wrote on his social media handle, "No one asked Moses how much he slept." His Insta story was written in white text on a simple black background, similar to many of his posts in recent weeks. Kanye initially posted a version of the text with a typo, deleted and reposted after correction.
Moses is considered to be an important figure in the holy bible. He is one of the important prophets in Judaism and one of the most significant prophets in Christianity, Islam, and the Druze faith. Moses was also the leader of the Israelites and a lawgiver. According to DailyMail, Kanye has spoken openly about his struggles in dealing with bipolar disorder. However, in a recent episode of Alo Mindful podcast, Kanye explained his relationship with his children and claimed, "So, even to this day, I'll still give Kim advice on things that can help, because that's gonna go to the kids. She's still gotta, basically, 80 percent of the time, raise those children."
He then added, "You know, you get to a point, and every time you get to that point, everyone wants to say "Oh, it's mental health" and everybody wants you to apologize a million times." The rapper further added, "Because everybody wants to have everyone so doped out, so controlled out, that you're not allowed to even stand up for the things that you're handing to your family.
He continued by stating, "The idea of taking the control and opinions or anything away from the mother or the father takes way someone's meaning in life," emphasizing that, "Your home is your original church."
The rapper also said he has never read a book in his life time, "I actually haven't ready any book," he stated. "Reading is like eating Brussels sprouts for me. And talking is like getting the Giorgio Baldi corn ravioli."
Further, he explained the importance of mental health, "People shame the concept of mental health. It is the lowest form of discrimination. Even a crazy person can call you crazy. It's an interesting weight to carry. It's like a mark of the beast on my ego." The 45-year-old then stated, "I can do something crazy in the best way, but if a random person on the street says, 'That was crazy,' I feel like s**t for a little bit." He concluded by saying, "It hurts as a human being, it hurts my feelings. Then I start to talk about how I made all this money to try to compensate for people downing me."
The Kim-Kanye duo started dating in 2012 and ended up getting married in a lavish wedding ceremony in Italy in 2014. Though the couple was considered iconic, it did not stand the test of time. Hence, after seven years of marriage, Kim filed for divorce from the Grammy award-winning singer due to 'irreconcilable differences.' In March 2022, the rapper and reality tv star parted their ways.
