Kanye West recently visited a penal institution in Texas to continue to spread the name of Jesus as he promotes his newest album “JESUS IS KING.” Despite the hesitant acceptance of West’s lyrics from some in the Christian community, the rapper’s public conversation about Jesus is catching attention across the world.
West released his newest album on Oct. 25, and it not only featured a song about Chick-fil-A but also included biblical references throughout the album.
According to Bible Gateway, an online Bible service, there are at least 85 biblical allusions in “JESUS IS KING.” Ahead of an appearance at Joel Osteen’s megachurch in Houston, Texas, West decided to take the Gospel, through his music, to a penal institution nearby.
The rapper and his choir stopped by Harris County penal institution on Friday for an “impromptu performance,” according to KSAT-TV.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez shared pictures and videos from West’s visit on Twitter. “kanyewest visited us today,” Gonzalez wrote. “I know he has a busy weekend in H-Town surrounding his visit to lakewoodchurch, so appreciate him and his choir spending time with us.”
