Friday’s theater crowd were treated to a scene from the movie of the Sunday Service choir performing Oh Lord, How Excellent, before Kanye played his album.
But according to The Sun, who’s heard the album that’s yet to be released, they called it a ’35-minute religious rant about the evils of the modern world.’
Journalist Simon Boyle added in his two star review: ‘Water is among his wackiest tracks, featuring a claim the human body is 90 per cent water. Scientists say it is 60 per cent . . . but Kanye knows best.’
Kanye reportedly also asks for forgiveness in his track, Hands On, after previously claiming that slavery was a ‘choice’ by African-Americans.
