0:23 AM PT – Kanye West and Joel Osteen had quite the chat Sunday at Lakewood Church in Houston – and one of the big takeaways was you hitting for Joel and his reputation in it Christian community.
The rapper-producer stated that Joel was responsible for converting thousands upon thousands of people into proper Christianity and for that alone … Ye said the guy should be more famous than criticized for everything he does in God's name.
They talked a lot more too – You touched on his upbringing in the church and explained that he thought it was pretty boring to go to Sunday service as a child … parents were strong believers and brought the family to a megachurch in Chicago 3 times a week .
He also discussed his mental breakdown 2016 and how after that … he felt he needed to move from most people in his inner circle because they were not real Christians, and was simply yes men who were seen to the almighty dollar.
Speaking of which, Kanye also pumped himself up a bit by saying that he was the greatest artist God ever created … and now he worked for man upstairs again – instead of working for the devil, which he believes they most of his contemporaries now do.
There was a lot more, but everything … it was a pretty touching interaction Ye and Joel shared on stage, with Y coming clear over and even ending on an uplifting prayer.
