Watch Kanye West Explain His Decision to Bring Jesus on Tour in New Interview

In a recent interview with San Francisco's The JV Show, Yeezy explained why he gave the original Jeezy such a prominent role in his new set of shows. It's actually pretty illuminating. “My girl [Kim] even asked afterward, 'Is that weird if Jesus comes onstage?'” he said. “No, we do plays all the time. People play Jesus. One of the things that I wanted to really get across with that message is that you can have a relationship with Jesus. You can talk to Jesus. In the same way how somebody would have 'Jesus is my homeboy,' that is the way I would express it.”

Also discussed: The Iluminati, class structure, and a “white voice” that he says he uses in certain social settings. He's at ease here, much more than he was with Kimmel, and he's somewhat relaxed too, which you could never say about the BBC Zane Lowe interview. Never let it be said that he's not fascinating.
