What does it mean when Kanye West Speaks?
Apparently, when Kanye West speaks it’s the gospel (pun intended). I am here in Dallas, Texas 4 hours away from Houston where Kanye West made an appearance in front of a full house at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church Sunday. I reference the location because the people of Houston tried to get their hands on tickets via social media. I’m vaguely aware that people give merit and weight to what Kanye says when he speaks. He unsurprisingly speaks quite often. The last time I saw an article about Kanye he was blasting George Bush Jr., which I felt was warranted.
A decent amount of Kanye’s music is good but, I’ll admit I could toss out half the catalog as well. I know he has said or done some things that may be offensive to some or controversial to others. He is saying that he has given his life to Christ which is great news to me personally. I have briefly and reluctantly listened to his new album Jesus is King. I’m not sure when people started to take what he said to heart but I know he is a polarizing figure. I actually dont receive any message from Kanye normally because I’m not listening, but why are you?
What exactly is Kanye’s Message?
I know I’m listening because Kanye West spoke up about the media and entertainment industry putting subliminal imagery in their programs and targeting children. He spoke about protecting ourselves and the minds of our children. Although, I do not usually listen when Kanye West speaks I somehow heard and felt his message.
I see so many negative images and hear way too much negativity to know that it is being fed to us and many are eating it willingly. I am posting a replay of the service so that you may interpret for yourself what you hear. I’m not arguing about whether Kanye is a righteous or deceptive messenger. I’m focused on the message, and if Kanye West speaking gets you to receive it or using his name gets clicks to the message I’m guilty sue me. I just want people, especially those of darker melanin to wake up and GET OUT!
