Being Born Again: Kanye West and his Journey to Righteousness


Kanye West has been known for years for his outrageous outburst and shocking headlines. All though there has been a lot of controversy surrounding him over the years, we can’t forget that he is still a musical genius, and a man with a vision. As a man who has been in the business for over 20 years, we have had the privilege of viewing the evolution of Kanye West and his accomplishments. From a hip-hop rockstar to now a family man, Kanye West explains how his life has dramatically changed during an interview with Apple Music. By surrendering his heart and allowing God into his life, he opens up about plans for the future and what he wants to do to keep himself grounded.

Kanye West is not only one of the most creative minds in music but also in the fashion industry. Yeezys have been a staple in any shoe lovers closet since its release in 2015. He is now taking his company and rebranding its vision and how the products are created. “I am using my mind to rebuild what we are building with farming, we’re bringing manufacturing back to the states. In the next two years, Yeezys you know, we’re going to bring them back to the states. We’re building factories where we have injection molded shoes. We’re going to be hiring people through the prison reform.” says Kanye.

He is looking at a future plan with his company that helps others and correspond with the work that his wife, Kim Kardashian, is doing in the White House. Kanye also claims, “For me as a founder it’s really important to bring these jobs back to America.” Over the years America has given up on in-state manufacturing because creating these products overseas were cheaper and easier to mass produce. Kanye West currently has a factory in Conoga, California in development which can provide thousands of jobs for those who are in need.

“God gives us everything that we need. What I love about being a Christian is that I am an innovator.” Kanye West said while explaining his process while making his recent album. He would ask people on his team while producing this album to submerge themselves in the experience by fasting. Kanye also claims he is no longer an entertainer because he is not here for anyone’s entertainment. He is using his talent to now spread the word as we can see with his new album Jesus is King. “I was asking people to not have premaritals sex before the album… there’s times that I went to people who were working on other projects and I asked them if they could just focus on this.” He asked for this focus because he believes in the power of union.

A community that prays together will stay together and as a newly converted man he wants to expose his spiritual journey to others along the way. Kanye hopes this album will send the message of the gospel through sound to all who is ready to listen.
