Rapper Lil NAS X shocked the public with "Satan Shoes"

The American rapper Lil NAS X caused outrage with the launch of a self-designed shoe.The sneakers, which were created in cooperation with the New York artist collective MSchf, were made with real human blood.

Lil NAS X is actually known as a rapper and Twitter personality.Now, however, the American causes a sensation with art.Together with the New York artist collective Mschf, he launched a self -designed sneaker.The so -called "Satan Shoes" live up to their devilish names and wait with all sorts of diabolical details.

"We love to make victims for our art"

Die extravaganten Schuhe aus dem Hause Lil nas zeichnen sich durch ein Bronze-Pentagramm, ein rotes, umgedrehtes Kreuz sowie ein aufgesticktes Bibelzitat aus. Auch die limitierte Auflage von genau 666 Paaren ist wohl kein Zufall. Besonders delikat: Bei der Entstehung des Schuhs soll laut Angaben von MSCHF auch Blut geflossen sein. So enthält jedes Paar einen Tropfen Menschenblut in der Schuhsohle. "We love to make victims for our art", erklärte ein Sprecher des Kollektivs. Doch auch Sneaker-Fans müssen bereit sein, für die "Satan Shoes" einige Opfer zu bringen. Etwa beim Preis: knackige 1018 US-Dollar.

Lil NAS 'sneakers are strongly reminiscent of the well-known Nike model "Nike Air Max '97".The characteristic emblem of the sporting goods manufacturer is clearly recognizable on the shoe.In response to the sneaker launch, Nike received numerous negative news and distanced himself from the collaboration between the rapper and MSchF."We are in no connection to Lil NAS or MSchF," said the company to the US television station CNN.When asked by the New York Times for legal problems when selling the shoes, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has not yet given a statement.

Blasphemy or freedom of art?

But not only at Nike, the launch of the shoes caused outrage.Catholic clergymen in particular were shocked by the design of the new "Satan Shoes"."This is malignant and heretical. I pray for Christians to rise against it," wrote, for example, the well -known television pastor Mark Burns on Twitter.Republican Kristi Noem was also horrified by the latest marketing campaign by the American rapper.In a tweet, she called on to fight "for the soul of the nation".

Lil NAS X itself looks not very insightful.Last Sunday, he reacted to the continued wave of outrage with an ironic Twitter contribution.Instead of an apology, the rapper linked the current music video for his latest track "Montero (Call Me by your name)".To see in it: the American rapper during lap dance with the devil.
