For those of you who don’t know, Kanye West is a rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, and fashion designer who is also married to Kim Kardashian.He has just released a new album, and it’s a total game changer.
West has been in the music game since 2004. Golddigger has always been one of his most well-known song until recently. As of October 25th, his most streamed song is Follow God from his new album, coming in with 15,051,287 streams.
West has been considered one of the most controversial rappers for a few years now, and his new “Christian themed” album has people raging.
“Christains” are not happy about Kanye’s new found faith and believe a rapper of his musical and outspoken twitter background could not possibly be qualified to share the gospel in an artistic way.
Kanye has been very open about his battle with mental illnesses, debt, and political views in recent years. He is a well-known Trump supporter and mental health advocate, and he has conveyed his outspoken opinions very well through his music.
He doesn’t stray from those qualities in his latest album; he sings and raps about his new-found faith and the struggles that come with it. Most tracks off the new album consist of accurate Bible verses and the word “hallelujah” is repeated as the chorus in one song.
Kanye talks about how good God has been to him, and how he will stand proud in his faith. Kanye is using his platform to spread God’s word and “Christains” are mad about that? Yes, yes they are.
The bottom line is, Kanye has reached more non-believers than you ever have, Karen.
