Wrapping up his one-year anniversary of Sunday Service performances this weekend (Dec. 29), Kanye West used the opportunity to detach his name from any type of “secular” conversation.
During Drake’s recent interview with “Rap Radar,” the mega-rapper offered his thoughts on the future of Kanye’s career, in respect to his newfound faith.
“God bless him on his new journey, but I don’t even know if he’s ever going to make secular music again or not…I don’t know,” he said. “If he turns up on me again, I’ll turn up on him again. I guess that’s what it is. I’m always down.”
Later on, Drake also addressed his ongoing feud with the Jesus Is King rapper, saying that it’s not his responsibility to mend their relationship “because it’s not on my end.”
“We have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him,” he added.
Kanye clearly took some offense to even the idea of secular music because he responded to the comment during his Sunday Service performance.
“I take offense to somebody calling me secular,” he said to the Sunday Service crowd. “Ya’ll could look at the domes that we was building, affordable homes, and call that bizarre. Ya’ll can take the picture of me painted in silver and call that what ya’ll want. But don’t call me secular. ‘Cause secular is trying to say that I do anything for anyone other than Christ. That’s where they got it messed up.”
“That’s where they got it twisted,” he continued. “I’ve worked for people other than Christ before, it landed me right in the hospital. It landed me right in debt.”
‘Ye also reflected on his own deviations from Christianity.
“I was highly distracted, I’m sorry. I was extremely distracted by a lot of the same things that got a lot of us to fly out here to L.A. in the first place,” he said. “I was distracted by them, the same trophies and man-made ideals. I was distracted from what God was telling me to do.”
Following his one-year Sunday Service anniversary, Kanye has also been eyeing a potential collaborated run with pastor Joel Osteen. The pair are reportedly gearing up to bring in “America’s Night of Hope” together at the Yankee Stadium this May.
