Whether the world wants it; whether the world needs it; whether the world is ready for it, the world has it: the great, white, Yeezus.  At least that’s how the start of Jon Bellion’s debut album, The Human Condition, sounds with its ‘modest’ boasts and boasts of modesty.  Bellion makes the crazy-brave decision to have his Jenny-from-the-block moment at the start of the album with He Is The Same, stating that fame and money haven’t changed him because he still lives in his dad’s house despite having a “couple million in the bank” and “could buy a few pads”.  We see what you did there, Jon, demonstrating your humility by referencing your wealth.
