Lecrae says even if Kanye West’s faith is insincere, ‘Jesus Is King’ album gives God the glory , and Reveals Upcoming Album Will be Titled “Restoration”

Grammy Award-winning rapper Lecrae weighed in on Kanye West’s new No. 1 album Jesus Is King, saying even if the rapper’s faith was insincere, God is getting the glory. 

“I think he’s a polarizing figure, obviously,” Lecrae told CBN News on Monday, speaking about the mainstream rapper who’s professing his faith in Jesus as a born again Christian.

“I think he says what’s on his mind and he’s unmoved by what opinions you might have of him based off of what he feels compelled to say. At this juncture in time, I believe he’s compelled to tell people about Jesus,” Lecrae said.

West started hosting Sunday Service events at the top of the year that feature gospel music and, more recently, sermons. He has professed to being a born again Christian and said he found healing after he was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder. His profession of faith has since drawn both criticism and praise.

His Jesus is King album, released Oct. 25, has now made history on the Billboard charts.

“I believe he’s compelled to say, ‘I found a new faith and I’m serious about it.’ And he’s not really worried about the backlash of those who want him to talk about the content that he used to talk about. He’s not worried about the backlash from those who say he’s insincere; he’s not worried about the backlash from others who say he’s using this as some sort of political play,” Lecrae continued.

“Even if he’s not sincere, I have no way of knowing. Even if Kanye was my best friend, I don’t know what’s going on in his heart, only God knows that. So even if he’s insincere, the Gospel message is very clear and evident, and God’s going to get His glory with what he’s saying in that project,” the faith-focused rapper maintained.

Daily Devotional: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made...like a Beautiful Tapestry

God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.    I'm an open book to you;       even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.   You know when I leave and when I get back;      I'm never out of your sight.   You know everything I'm going to say      before I start the first sentence.   I look behind me and you're there,      then up ahead and you're there, too—      your reassuring presence, coming and going.   This is too much, too wonderful—      I can't take it all in!    Psalm 139: 1-6   Boy, it takes a whole lot of faith to stare into the beauty of creation and then think that it just accidentally or randomly happened.  To see the delicate balance there is in life and…See More
