Kanye West Says He’s Done With Secular Music, Will Only Record Gospel From Now On — Report
Kanye West’s latest album Jesus Is King could be just the first of his many gospel projects.
The rapper hosted a listening party at Auditorium Theatre in his hometown Chicago Saturday (Sept. 28) and reportedly said that he will no longer record secular music.
Kanye also shared cover art for his upcoming Jesus Is King Imax film, set to be released in October.
West going gospel might not come as a surprise to fans. He’s been hosting popular gospel Sunday Services since January.
Nicki Minaj also recently recalled how West told her he was embracing a new lifestyle with Christ.
“Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or aren’t spiritual as we are…then when you find people, because I was just with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now.”
His wife, Kim Kardashian, also confirmed West is all about worshipping Jesus during a recent appearance on The View.
“Kanye started this I think just to heal himself, and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family. He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ… people always ask, you know, ‘what are you worshiping?’ and ‘what is this?’ it is a Christian service, like a musical ministry, they talk about Jesus and God.”
“For the most part it’s a m usical ministry. He doesn’t have his 501(c)(3) to make it amusical church. It’s for God, it’s a Christian church. It staretd off healing for him, and now it’s become something he wants to share for everybody else.”
