6 Reasons Why Kanye West’s New Cult — I Mean Church — Is Cause For Pause
There’s no denying that some of Kanye West’s erratic antics in recent years have created cause for concern, especially among ride-or-die fans. When he first transitioned from producer to rapper, he was revered as one of the best conscious rappers of our generation. Because his brazen candor somehow spoke to his profundity as an artist and illuminated his own self-awareness as well as his cognizance of the world around him, it was easy to dismiss each outburst or accept it as an endearing part of his natural charisma. However, between West’s dragon energy-fueled Donald Trump obsession and his comments on slavery as a “choice” (I know he apologized, but I’m still not over it), each verbal seizure has left many of us waiting for some form of divine intervention — for Jesus to take the wheel, in addition to all the MAGA hats.
Well, it looks our prayers have finally been answered (sort of). Instead of running his mouth and Twitter fingers, Ye has spent 2019 channelling his artistic mania into a new “musical church.” The Kardashian-Wests have reportedly been hosting annual weekly pop-up spiritual gatherings known as Sunday Service. These star-studded, Christian-based prayer events reportedly feature sermons led by DMX and an incredible gospel choir and live orchestra led by Ye.

Since the release for West’s upcoming album Yandhi was put on an indefinite hold, it’s easy to speculate whether or not these private church services are a genuine exercise in the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment, or a calculated, damage control-related public relations strategy to drum up positive press. Whatever the case, it makes sense that Kanye would want to create a platform that not only lets him release his creative energy while experimenting musically, but also is more conducive to preaching, given his propensity for uninhibited (occasionally illogical) ranting. Although developing this “church” has likely been cathartic for both Kanye and Kim, and each already has a huge following based on their respective careers, the jury is still out on whether or not they can responsibly foster a sensible spiritual collective. – Source
