Last week, rapper Kanye West debuted his controversial new single called, “New Slaves,” off his upcoming Yeezus LP along with the track’s accompanied video, which was shot/projected on 66 walls in Toronto, Berlin, Paris, Sydney, New York, Los Angeles and more.
Yesterday, West announced via Twitter that Round 2 of his worldwide projections would include cities like Birmingham, U.K.; Milan, Italy; Auckland, New Zealand; San Diego, California and several more locations.
Now, while fans are expecting to see the rapper’s “New Slaves” projections at various locations throughout Houston,– there is now a delay– as the Church shuts down production last night. Three of West’s location in Houston such as the Rothko Chapel, Central Library downtown and George Bush Monument were a no-go during the second weekend of the rapper’s public video screening across the globe.
An insider says, “Cops told fans, who came out to see the video being shot at Houston’s Rothko Chapel, that they’d be arrested for trespassing if they did not leave.”
Apparently, the church says they wish to have no part in West’s ungodly work, considering his sixth album being titled Yeezus (
Jesus) to another one of his controversial tracks entitled “I Am A God,” which makes a mockery of the lord.
And according to Vibe, “Technical Difficulties were to blame for Central Library’s botched screening, while the George Bush Monument was less of a pleasant story.”
Plus, there were no reports of arrests from any of the locations. And if you were wondering, Kanye’s “Yeezus” album drops June 18th.
