Kanye West has begun promotion for his new album Jesus is King with some bold claims, even going by Kanye standards.

West also revealed that he will release a new 'Sunday Service' project on Christmas Day, titled Jesus is Born. It will certainly need to be the second coming to knock Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas album off our stereo on Christmas morning...
