Kanye Believe It? He Does!

Rapper Shares His New-Found Faith

Rapper and global music icon Kanye West has revealed his faith in God after releasing his new album ‘Jesus is King’ – which has catapulted to success across the world.

West – who has long wrestled with faith in his lyrics, including early songs such as ‘Jesus Walks’ – has now found God. And he is even leading his own church gatherings called Sunday Service.

The man who once described himself as the ‘greatest living human’ said: “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting you know what the Hennessey had done for me, but now I’m letting you know what Jesus has done for me, and in that I’m no longer a slave, I’m a son now, a son of God. I’m free.”

The pivotal moment in West’s journey came when he was hospitalised in 2016 for temporary psychosis and sleep deprivation, a time where God would intervene and bring a new lease of life.

He added: “The most space that I had to think is when I went to the hospital. One of the things that happened is I started reading the Bible and I started writing and copying out Bible verses and a person came to my house that wasn’t a Christian and told me come over, and 30 minutes later I was in handcuffs headed to the hospital.

“Now this person very well may have saved my life because when you’re in an episode you could jump off the side of a balcony, you can stab your eye out, you can do a lot of things when you’re ramped up like that, but one of the things that people do now is they try to discriminate against my mind and my thoughts because of that moment. I’ve seen him work miracles in my life.”

‘Jesus is King’ released in October and is an album full of Christian music, with titles, ‘Selah’, ‘Follow God’, ‘Closed on Sunday’, ‘God Is’, ‘Use This Gospel’ and ‘Jesus is Lord’ all featuring on mainstream radio across the world as West uses his elevated profile and music to describe the transformation God has made to his life.
