Kanye West knows the power of the gospel. Any true Hip-Hop fanatic can confirm that Kanye West has never been afraid to discuss his views on religion whether it be in the media or through his music. Long before Sunday Service, “Father Stretch My Hands”, and “Ultra Light Beam” there was “Jesus Walks”. The fourth single from West’s debut album, The College Dropout, changed the world’s perception of Rap music from secular to and Kanye had finally figured out how to bridge the gap. In doing so, “Jesus Walks” received critical acclaim and numerous accolades, boasting the award for Best Rap Song at the 47th Grammy Awards.
Kanye continues to gift us masterpieces time and time again. His unpredictability is undeniably exciting and his latest recommitment to Christianity has sparked interest from old and new fans alike.
