The release of Kanye West’s “Jesus is King” has been embraced by the Jesuit community. Many Jesuit schools full of Kanye West’s supporters now have the opportunity to blend pop culture with Christian teachings. Out of the schools following this movement, our own campus has taken a unique approach: replacing our fight song with an entire Kanye album.
LMU’s decision to replace our time-honored, long-established fight song with the “Jesus is King” album came from a mixture of student and administrative reactions.
“Honestly, it’s a pretty dope album, dude,” says Chad McRapp, a sophomore and self-proclaimed “frat-god.” “Like, that fight song we have zero bars, so this is a total step up.” Chad was spotted with a group he calls “the Squad” booing the song at the latest basketball game.
“From a musical standpoint, I think this is a win,” says Khan Yaybest, an administrator for the athletics department. “More students are going to know the fight songs we play now. That’s a major step up from no one knowing the fight song.”
Yaybest went on to talk about the other staff opinions on the change, vocalizing their nearly-universal approval of the “Jesus is King” album.
“On my way out of my office, I could hear the album playing on the speakers in President Snyder’s office. The next day, he kept referring to it as an ‘absolute slap.’”
The implementation of Kanye West’s new album into the Jesuit college system is going to greatly affect the future of our very own campus. It’s been rumored that on-campus masses will soon include tracks from the one and only Louis Vuitton Don’s discography.
