Ye’s Moses statement and Donda Academy spark speculation
Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, compared himself to the Israelite leader, Moïse, in an Instagram Story on Sunday. The rapper and fashion icon’s cryptic statement came after he deleted all his messages on the social media platform – and many are speculating about Donda Academy, the private Christian school he started in California.
“No one asked Moses how long he slept” Tell yourself in a post that had white text on a solid black background.
It’s unclear what Ye meant by that statement, though some have concluded that the rapper, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorderhas trouble sleeping. According to Vogueafter Ye first revealed his diagnosis in 2016, he later said he actually had a sleep disorder, but later admitted to being bipolar again.

“You’re about to get lost in the desert with a bunch of people for 40 years,” said one Reddit user.
“I think that means he’s not sleeping because he’s in a manic episode,” said another, “and people ask him how long he slept because he acts erratically. .and that’s his best answer.”

This isn’t the first time Ye has compared himself to Moses. In a 2020 tweet, he said, “I need to see everyone’s contracts at Universal and Sony. I will not watch my people be enslaved. I put my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern slave ships. I am the new Moses.
