Is Kanye West the new Messiah? At least one street artist in Los Angeles thought the question was worth asking, painting a mural of the "I'm a God" rapper depicted as Jesus being crucified. The painting reportedly was first noticed, non-coincidentally, on Good Friday and is void of the artist's signature only reading, "The New Messiah?" at the bottom of the portrait.

So far, no one has come forth to claim the art. Maybe it was the guy who started the Kanye religion.
