Rapper Kanye West is receiving backlash from some Christians for his upcoming gospel album, ‘Jesus is King’.
Some Christians have taken to social media to criticize the album, calling West a ‘self-proclaimed god’ and implying his faith is being weaponized for album sales
West has identified as a born again Christian and has referenced to religion in many of his works
He’s drawn both criticism and praise for his infamous Sunday Services
According to Kim Kardashian, the album is scheduled to drop on Sunday (today)
This album is his most vocal proclamation of his faith yet, but its conception has been foreshadowed for years.
In 2004, West’s debut album ‘College Dropout’ featured a song titled ‘Jesus Walks’ that showed him asking for guidance.
‘God show me the way because the Devil’s tryna break me down And I don’t think there’s nothin’ I can do now to right my wrongs. I wanna talk to God but I’m afraid ’cause we ain’t spoke in so long’.
