A decade ago, we would sooner have predicted Snoop Dog would swear off weed than Kanye would go all-in for Jesus. Now that it’s happened, Warriors & Wildmen make sense of what it all means.
We all knew SOMETHING was up with Kanye about a year ago when he and Candace Owens were making liberal heads explode by talking politics. It wasn’t even a ‘You have to vote for Trump’ approach, so much as you don’t owe lockstep allegiance to any one party. Not exactly a radical idea? Sure it was. At least, it was to the crowd he held sway over.
There was the blow-up with the MAGA hat and the Trump meeting.
And now — he and his family have been baptized, and Kanye has pushed all his chips in for Jesus.
Life comes at you fast, right?
Rich and I dig into the cultural relevance of his conversion, the public reaction, and what we think the Christian reaction to an announcement like this one should REALLY look like.
The episode description says it all — “Rich and Doug discuss Kanye, his latest album, ‘Jesus Is King’ and the controversy surrounding his conversion experience and subsequent ministry in this epic podcast. Enjoy and share.”
