On Saturday (October 12), the “Take Me to The Light” rapper stopped at George Washington University for a listening party of his soon-to-be-released album, Jesus Is King, and revealed that he’s a born again Christian.
Being that no Kanye event is complete without him sharing details about his life and/or thoughts on the current state of politics, he not only gave fans a listen to his album, but also read a few bible verses and opened up about his path to Christ. “I want to let you guys know that I am not here for your entertainment this afternoon,” Kanye told the crowd. “We are here to spread the gospel.” He then proceeded to read a bible verse and said, “Excuse me if I mispronounce anything. I am a recent convert. It means I recently got saved within this year.”
Ye later added, “I know for a fact, being that I am a strong member in pop culture that I worshipped the idea of labels, brand names. I worshipped cars. I worshipped the city I grew up in. I probably said Chicago in my career more than I said Jesus.”
Kanye, who announced in September that he is no longer making secular music, only gospel from here on out, went on to discuss his favorite bible verses and the story of Jesus.
Prior to his George Washington University listening session, Ye surprised Howard University students with an on-campus Sunday Service. While the show was announced overnight, tickets sold out by 8 a.m on Saturday.
According to NBC Washington, Ye performed “new verses and [raised] his hands to the sky for the worship-style show,” which was held on the school’s quad. Ye additionally performed a number of his hits, including “Jesus Walks,” “Fade,” “Beautiful Morning,” and more.
For the show, the “Mixed Personalities” rapper was joined by his wife Kim Kardashian and his two oldest children, North and Saint.
