After unveiling the very religious Jesus Is King Album on October 25, the turbulent rapper offers a new musical fantasy.
“Nebuchadnezzar”, this is the name of the next project by Kanye West, an opera premiered on November 24 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The musician announced the news via a Twitter publication, unveiling a kind of golden poster, designed by Nick Knight, a British fashion photographer. This one shows the profile of a man, who would be the profile of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II, who gave his name to the show.
