Kanye West’s religious rebirth It’s not any joke. His beliefs and his desire to put himself ‘in the service of the Lord’ have influenced his music – his latest album has been a gospel work -, his most recent clothing collections – based on a color palette inspired by the Bible – and his electoral program, which includes as one of his key points returning prayer to the American classrooms if he finally manages to win the presidential elections.
The last “vision” of the rapper, who has announced through a new string of tweets, has been to create a replica of the popular application TikTok that it has a strict control – or censorship, depends on how you look at it – based on a series of values related to its own.
