His title, "Nebuchadnezzar", refers to the Babylonian Nebuchadnezzar, whom Kanye West compared in a recent interview, asserting that like him, this ancient king had suffered from bipolarity. "Nebuchadnezzar was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and he remained king," Apple rapper, who has recently proclaimed himself "the greatest living human artist," was assured. For some observers, the artist's renewed faith, like this opera, but also his latest album "Jesus is King", would be deeply linked to his personal fight against bipolarity, which he revealed. during a meeting with Donald Trump in 2018, and to which he multiplies allusions. Although the Bible does not directly refer to the bipolarity of King Nebuchadnezzar, the Book of Daniel refers to a period during which the latter suffered from mental disorders and agitated dreams.
