Kanye West has decided not to make secular music anymore but gospel from now on.
The rapper and father of four, 42, is set to drop a new album gospel album Jesus Is King in October 2019, and there are new reports that Kanye is done with secular music and will be operating as a gospel artist from now on.
Chicago music industry insider Andrew Barber, creator of FakeShoreDrive.com and Valee’s manager, was one of the people who heard the new album and confirmed Kanye is done with secular music.
“Kanye also announced that he is no longer making secular music,” Barber tweeted on Sunday. “Only Gospel from here on out.”
Kanye since overcoming his mental health issues in 2018 has drawn closer to God and fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj recently revealed in a radio interview that Kanye told her he’s now a born again Christian and was embracing a new lifestyle with Christ.
Nicki Minaj She said: “Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or aren’t spiritual as we are…then when you find people, because I was just with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now.”
His wife, Kim Kardashian, has this to say on The View.
“Kanye started this I think just to heal himself, and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family. He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ… people always ask, you know, ‘what are you worshiping?’ and ‘what is this?’ it is a Christian service, like a musical ministry, they talk about Jesus and God.”
“For the most part, it’s a musical ministry. He doesn’t have his 501(c)(3) to make it amusical church. It’s for God, it’s a Christian church. It started off healing for him, and now it’s become something he wants to share for everybody else.”
