They even iced out Jesus' hair
My last piece, I swear, they even iced out Jesus' hair
Ice on this white Jesus seem a little unholy
His last piece has got the head and hair of Jesus covered in diamonds, when ironically Jesus was poor and preached to help others and not to spend excessively on needless things. This is also an nod to The Notorious B.I.G. in “I Love the Dough”
In addition, Cole refers to “white Jesus” which can be interpreted in two ways.
White: as in the diamonds surrounding this piece
White: as in the race of Jesus established by mainstream Christianity.
Interesting point regarding the latter, there are many Christian sects and scholars that argue that Jesus was black.
