Following many years of projecting a god complex through his alter ego Yeezus, Kanye West started to rap a different tune in 2019 with his Sunday Service events. Earlier this month, footage of West professing his faith at a megachurch in Atlanta, Georgia, during one of his services went viral.
During his 10-minute testimonial, West clarified who he is worshiping, "Jesus, let's be specific," West said. "Because the road to Hell is paved with, 'Oh, I'm just a good person.'"
The "Jesus Walks" rapper sang "use me, Lord," at the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church along with a 600-person choir.
"You sent Your Son to die for us and all You ask is for radical obedience to You," he declared in prayer to God. "You're not asking us to do the least. You know how people are like, 'At least I...,' how are we gonna do the least when He did the most?"
The 42-year-old then shared how God pulled him out of a dark season in his life.
"I've seen Him work miracles in my life," West said. "You know the devil presents so many flashy, shiny objects. I've seen everything that the devil could've showed you via TV, videos, car dealerships, jewelry, houses, and I'll tell you..." he added, singing: "Nothin' beats God...and a sound mind."
On Friday, West released a new album titled Jesus Is King, and the entire track listing is laced with references to Jesus, God, and the Bible.
“Baptized,” “Sweet Jesus,” “Garden,” “Selah” and “Water” are some of the tracks. West and his Sunday Service choir premiered “Water” during their performance at Coachella last Easter.
