The reason Kanye West almost quit rapping

By Bandook - October 22, 2019

Jesus Is King, Kanye West’s new album is due this Friday (October 25) and going by a recent interview, it almost never happened because Ye decided to quit rapping altogether.

And the reason is gonna blow your mind. After being “saved” by Christianity, he told pastor Adam Tyson in an interview with Christian media organisation Apologia: ‘That’s the devil’s music’.

Said Tyson, “One time, he told me that he wasn’t going to rap. I said, ‘Why not?’” to which Kanye replied: “‘That’s the devil’s music.’ I said, ‘Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God.’

“I definitely said, ‘Hey, bro. I think you need to use your talents that God’s given you and use that platform for God.’”
