Kanye West was supposed to release his ninth studio album “Jesus Is King” on September 27 but that didn’t happen. Kim Kardashian soon said it’d drop on 9/29 after Ye made some tweaks to it. It still isn’t here as he continues to want to make changes.
Ye has also been doing his “Sunday Service” events at churches and it’s come to a point where it looks like he’s just doing it for money, according to The Daily Mail. He had a service in NYC on Sunday and an attendee named Brooke Leigh Howard said that it “had the feel of slaves worshiping on a Southern plantation, praising select scripture that’s been provided in order to keep them in line.” This took place at the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral in Queens.
Preacher Adam Tyson also “came across like an antebellum preacher using his overseer to keep the rest of the slaves blindly obedient.” The Sunday Service also supposedly doesn’t have a church experience, but more of a “Kanye West Experience.” Ye is also coming across as doing these services just for profit as he “monetizes his faith with a line of Sunday Service merchandise that his acolytes have been eager to snap up.” Howard added that Ye’s take on religion is him basing it on loving and following Jesus blindly, as slaves were taught to do.
Among the celebs who attended the service were Swizz Beatz, Alexander Wang, Rick Fox and Akon. When the service ended, he left to go to his album listening session. There will be a film released by him based on the Jesus Is King album before the year is over. The album itself has no release date as of now though.
It definitely seems like Ye is doing these services for profit. He’s been coming across as thinking he’s Jesus and even named his 2013 album “Yeezus.” He really hasn’t been the same since praising Donald Trump and saying slavery was a choice last year. Flip the page to see the NYC Sunday service.
