Kanye West Says Music Producers Won’t Let Artists Mention Jesus

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor 

During his Sunday Service performance in Miami before the big game, West used his platform on stage to tell listeners that there’s an extreme aversion to Jesus’ holy name in the entertainment industry.

“[The Devil] moved us all out to Hollywood, moved us all out to New York. Chasing gold statues. Literally signing a contract and selling our souls,” West said. “They got contracts out there that say, ‘You can’t say Jesus.’”

West also said without hesitation, “God is better than the devil.”

This isn’t the first time West has called out spiritual corruption in the entertainment industry.

“‘Closed on Sunday’ is the hardest record ever made …because it’s talking about protecting your kids from the indoctrination of the media,” West said at a Sunday Service in Houston last year.

“Thousands and thousands of the images that are fed to children by the age of 6 or 7,” West continued. “Within those images are images mixed in that we don’t know about as parents, that are purposefully meant to lower the kid’s superpower and esteem so that they can be more susceptible to consumption, and feel that they need to consume and become part of the robotic, numeric system that controls so much of the media. You can do research on what I’m talking about.”

To combat this, West is releasing worshipful songs on his own albums and in his studio.

Yet West encourages those he works with to say Jesus’s name.

“You can say Jesus in [my] studio,” declared the GRAMMY award-winning rapper.

In a recent interview with Architectural Digest, West and his wife Kim Kardashian West agreed that that if their home had an album soundtrack, it would be West’s faith-filled album, “Jesus Is King.”
