Kanye West's traveling gospel revival "Sunday Service" will roll into Joel Osteen's megachurch this Sunday, according to TMZ.

Kanye was invited to bring his popular Sunday Service revival to the megachurch in Houston, Texas. Osteen blocked off 20 to 30 minutes this Sunday for Kanye to perform gospel songs off his new album, Jesus Is King.

Also performing will be Kanye's Sunday Service choir who are featured on the album.

Kanye, 42, famously turned his back on secular music because he believes the current generation of young people need Jesus.

Lakewood Church is the largest megachurch in America. Osteen is often criticized for promoting prosperity and wealth at his ministry.

Kanye also focuses his efforts on accumulating great wealth. The father of four was upset when Forbes declined to acknowledge him as a billionaire after he presented a receipt for $890 million.

The "Jesus Walks" rapper even considered changing his name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West.

Kanye recently disclosed that the IRS cut him a refund check for $68 million.

Kanye West is a born-again Christian and a musical genius with dreams of being a billionaire. So why not change his name to stand in his truth?

A wise person once said "You are what you think." Kanye thinks he is the most successful and wealthiest artist of his generation. During an appearance at the FastCompany Innovation Festival 2019 in New York City, Kanye, 42, says he might change his name to reflect his billionaire status.

"When people say it's crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y'all understand exactly what it is… It will be on the license plate."

Kanye said he is determined to prove Forbes wrong after the magazine refused to recognize him as a billionaire when he showed them a receipt for $890 million. Forbes recognized his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner as a billionaire with no receipts.

By changing his name, Kanye will force the world to recognize him as a billionaire because billionaire is his middle name.

"When I did Forbes, I showed them a $890 million receipt and they still didn't say 'billionaire.' They don't want us to know that we can buy land; they don’t want us to have the 100 percent ownership [that] I have at Yeezy."

Kanye recently disclosed that the IRS cut him a refund check for $68 million. The hefty check brings him that much closer to his dreams of billionaire status.

Kanye West is on a whirlwind promotional tour in New York City to launch his new Yeezy sneaker made of algae. The 42-year-old gospel musician toured a Burberry store with his wife Kim Kardashian-West.

During a spontaneous party thrown by WSJ magazine and FastCompany, Kanye said he plans to run for president in 2024.

In a video clip from the FastCompany Innovation Festival where Kanye spoke on a panel, he asked professional athletes in the NBA and NFL to stop playing for a week to help free Rodney Reed, the inmate whom Kim Kardashian-West is lobbying to get off death row.

"All the evidence says this guy didn't do it, and he's supposed to be executed in 30 days, and all the celebrity blacks will tweet about it. But the question is, will they stop playing basketball for a week to make sure that this innocent man gets out?"

Kanye also asked Black people to stop voting for who the elites choose for them.

"For Black people I say own your power. Your power is not to just vote Democrat for the rest of our lives. That's not the power," he said, according to Page Six.

"The power is when I talk to my lawyer ... I put on my trench coat and said, 'We're moving these factories to America, and that's how it's going to be' — and it's lovely." He debuted an algae sneaker, and proclaimed, "We moved the headquarters to Cody, Wyo … Our goal is to bring the manufacturing back to America — South America, North America — bring it back Stateside and to present jobs for people back here."

Kanye touched on losing his deal with Louis Vuitton which he said triggered his mental breakdown that landed him in a psychiatric ward in 2016.

"No one knew that was the beginning of me going to the hospital," he said.

Kim Kardashian-West says she has made sacrifices and totally compromises for Kanye West as he goes through a midlife change.

Kim stopped by The Real daytime talk show on Wednesday and suggested the rap musician, who turned his back on secular music, is going through a midlife crisis.

Kanye gave up rap music to preach to the unwashed masses during his popular Sunday Service gospel revival tour. Kim told The Real co-hosts that she supports her 42-year-old husband while he embarks on his religious journey. "I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling. And he's been going through this life change," she said.

The West Coast socialite revealed she fights with her husband over the differences in their approach to raising their children since he became a born-again Christian.

The 39-year-old mother of four said Kanye removed the televisions from their children's bedrooms and he forbid 6-year-old North West from wearing lipstick.

"He's very cautious about what we have in the house. We got rid of TVs in the kids' room and removed makeup from North's room. He's had this epiphany of being this... not that he wasn't an amazing dad, but being more strict as a dad and very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see."

She said she has had to compromise as Kanye becomes "more strict" as a dad. She said they sometimes fight over his excessive demands. Rumor has it that he went through her closets and ordered her to stop dressing in half naked clothing.

"I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa."

More than 1,000 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior at Kanye West's latest Sunday Service. Calling it "a new wave revival", a Louisiana pastor said 1,000 Christians raised their hands and committed their lives to Christ at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday night.

"In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!" said Pastor Curvine Brewington, of Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana.


 

But the evening didn't end without some controversy. There were complaints that organizers sold "brunch" for $55 a plate. At least one woman demanding her money back for unsavory-looking food, according to Dailymail.com.

Kimberly Kinchen posted a Facebook image of her plate that she says she paid $55 for. The meal consisted of 2 pancakes, what appears to be a sausage patty and 2 slices of bacon. Kitchen was not satisfied after taking 2 bites of the pancakes.

Kitchen contacted a local news station to complain. "Can y'all cover a story on this because I want my coins back. This is the wonderful & COLD brunch BUFFET we are being served," she said, adding, "the server looked at me crazy when I asked for another pancake."

Kanye, 42, is pictured above attending a Ralph Lauren event in Chicago on Oct. 28.

More than 1,000 people attended the 'Brunchella' church service in Louisiana on Friday to hear the anointed one, Kanye, speak and perform selections from his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye brought three of his four children - North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and Chicago West, 22 months - to witness the revival.

Kanye, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that young people need Jesus more than ever.

Pastor Brewington posted a photo that showed hundreds of worshipers raising their hands during an alter call.

"If you've ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this Sunday service project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL," Brewington wrote.

"Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given," he added.

Bargain website Vouchercloud broke down the Forbes 100 richest celebrities by their zodiac signs. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who is worth untold billions of dollars, is the highest-earning Capricorn.

Of the 100 richest celebrities, 13 are Capricorns, 10 are Cancers, and 10 are Taurus, according to London's Dailymail.com.

Kim Kardashian-West is the highest-earning Libra, and her half sister, Kylie Jenner is supposedly the best paid Leo sign.

Why do zodiac signs matter? They matter because studies have shown there are differences between people who are born under certain zodiac signs.

For instance, Capricorns (born between December 22 and January 19) tend to be highly intelligent, least narcissistic, and the richest (see how those attributes go together?).

FayesVision/WENN.com

Famous Capricorns include actors Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson and Jane Fonda, NBA star LeBron James, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, conservative talk show hosts Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, R&B singer Mary J. Blige, celebrity spawn Blue Ivy Carter, and dead notables Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Elvis Presley.

Geminis (May 22 - June 21) tend to be more successful, rich, and more narcissistic.

Win McNamee/Getty Images

Famous Geminis include U.S. President Donald Trump, rap producer-turned gospel singer Kanye West, rapper Busta Rhymes, actresses Angelina Jolie and Joan Collins, R&B singers Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight, and dead superstars Tupac Shakur and Marilyn Monroe.

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

The most romantic zodiac signs are Pisces (February 19 - March 20), Aries (March 21 - April 20) and Virgo (August 23 - September 22). Actress Lupita Nyong'o (pictured left with singer Janelle Monáe) is a famous Pisces. People born under the Pisces, Aries and Virgo star signs tend to stay married longer and take their relationships a bit more seriously.

Which zodiac sign ranks amongst the poorest celebrities?

Out of the top 100 richest celebrities, the Scorpios (October 23 - November 21) and Pisces (February 19 - March 20) are the least richest signs, with only 5 people each, according to Dailymail.com.

Facebook

In response to complaints by Kanye West and others, Instagram has banned sexually suggestive emojis, including the eggplant and the peach, which resemble parts of the human anatomy.

The eggplant emoji has been used to suggest an erect phallus, while the peach resembles a woman's buttocks. The water drops resemble ejaculation.

Instagram bosses say users on their platforms can no longer use those emojis - even to cover up genitals on photos.

The emojis can still be used in captions, but not to convey sexually suggestive content or ask for anything sexual. The changes will cut down on sex workers plying their trade on the social media platform.

Facebook

The new changes have been implemented in Facebook's Sexual Solicitation Community Standards which took effect on October 24. Sex workers will no longer be allowed to advertise their services on Instagram or Facebook.

Users who are not sex workers still can't use the emojis in their photo posts. The changes have sparked fury online.

One user wrote:

"Facebook's about to start banning people for smutty art and butt shots. They still won't ban Nazis and TERFs because 'free speech,' but god help you if you use an eggplant emoji."

Kanye West complained that social media entices men like him to stray from their marriages by hosting free photos of half naked women.

Rich Fury/Getty Images

Kanye West says social media entices men like him to stray from their marriages by hosting free photos of half naked women.

Kanye, 42, says he "suffers like Jesus" whenever he surfs social media, only to be confronted by images of women in various stages of undress.

The former rapper says social media tests a man's limits with all those sexy photos.

In an interview with Apple Music, Kanye compared social media to "modern day cigarettes" for their addictive qualities.

"I suffer - and I appreciate the suffering because we can just feel a little bit of what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media makes me suffer," he said.

'I suffer from that and by me saying this out loud, I'm sure there's other married men that suffer in a similar way that are happy to hear me say, "Oh ya, I'm suffering."'

Wen asked why this is a specific problem for married men, he answered, "Because social media prompts women in particular to put out content that they wouldn't have put out...".

Kanye said the immediate availability of smut on social media only aggravates his sex addiction.

"When I was younger and I wanted to see something like that I had to pay someone that was older to go to 7/11 and buy it," he said, referring to p0rn magazines.

RSKM / BACKGRID

Kanye, who shares four children with his socialite wife Kim Kardashian-West, said his addiction to p0rn began when he discovered a Playboy magazine when he was 5. He said the discovery "affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life".

Kanye previously asked his wife, Kim, to tone down her sexy outfits. He also reportedly asked other rappers to avoid having premarital sex while working on his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye was admitted into a psychiatric hospital in 2016 after he experienced a psychological emergency (mental breakdown).

President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., is a big fan of Kanye West's new album Jesus Is King. Kanye's 9th studio album is predicted to move over 400,000 copies in first week sales, making it one of the biggest selling albums of the year.

If Trump Jr is a fan of Kanye's new music, his dad is probably a gospel fan, too. Visitors to the White House likely hear the strains Kanye's hip-hop gospel music from the private residence.

Although the album has its critics, Trump Jr. was very impressed with what he heard. He took the time to praise the former rapper for being a pioneer and having the courage to blaze trails where few rappers dare to go.

"Kanye West is cracking the culture code. @kanyewest's new album #JesusIsKing is the epitome of fearless creativity and 'dangerous, unapproved' ideas. Leftists always try to silence those who are speaking truth. They're waging a war on our family and culture. Kanye is a pioneer."

TMZ has fired veteran reporter Van Lathan after an on-air argument with another TMZ staffer escalated to verbal threats.

According to Page Six, TMZ handed Lathan his walking papers after he got into a nasty confrontation with fellow reporter, Michael Babcock, right.

Lathan famously confronted former rap producer Kanye West who said "slavery was a choice" on TMZ Live in May 2018.

SHADY / BACKGRID

While Lathan was praised for checking Kanye on the air last year, he was let go this week for doing the same thing to Babcock.

According to Page Six, the two men argued over a political matter that escalated out of control when threats were leveled. The shouting match was edited out of the segment on "TMZ Live" last week.

After the segment, Lathan, who hosts the popular "Red Pill" podcast, confronted Babcock, who is more conservative in his political views.

A source tells Page Six that Lathan threatened Babcock, saying there would be trouble if he "ever embarrassed [Lathan] like that again."

Insiders say that Lathan met with TMZ's attorneys, and that he was suspended after the meeting. He was officially let go a few days later, Page Six reports.

Sources tell Page Six that Lathan was "a huge part" of TMZ's success over the past few years, and that they were stunned he had been fired from the show.

Lathan declined to speak with Page Six on the advice of his attorney. Babcock reportedly hung up on a Page Six reporter.

Kanye West has officially turned his back on secular music after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Rap music helped make Kanye West a multi-millionaire many times over. But according to Kanye's pastor, rap music is "the devil's music," and he wants no part of it.

Rich Fury/Getty Images

Adam Tyson, West's pastor at Placerita Bible Church in California, says Kanye turned his back on secular music after he recently became a born-again Christian.

"One time, he told me that he wasn't going to rap [anymore]," Tyson said in an interview.

"I said, 'Why not?' He said, 'That's the devil's music'. I said, 'Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God'."

Tyson told Kanye he could still use his God-given rap talent to make millions for his church.

But Kanye told him the devil's music was responsible for his sinful behavior.

"The guilt of sin brought him down low. He would say the devil basically brought him to a place where he just felt like he was in bondage to his sin. So he said, 'I got delivered'."

Kanye also said his wife Kim Kardashian's revealing style of dress was becoming a problem for him.

He said Kim's provocative style of dress was negatively affecting his "soul and spirit."

Kanye West's plan to take his popular "Sunday Service" gospel revival to Jamaica has angered local pastors there.

The rap producer is debuting his revival in Kingston's Emancipation Park on the Caribbean island on Friday night, but local pastors have taken exception to his plans.

The island country is deeply religious and the Jamaican people consider themselves Christians. They take the Word of God very literally.

Rich Fury/Getty Images

Religious leaders in Jamaica question the star's commitment to God, despite West's claims he is a born-again Christian.

"I don't know him (West) as a Christian and someone who is being led by the Holy Spirit," local pastor Stephen Blake told the Jamaica Star, according to WENN.com. "We have to examine the motive here."

They are suspicious of West's plan to take a team to the venue to cleanse it of impure spirits before the Sunday Service.

"From a spiritual perspective, I am not 100 per cent comfortable," Blake explained. "Therefore, I am calling for the church to pray against this, just in case there is anything negative associated with this service that Kanye is coming to Jamaica to keep."

The clergyman expressed fears the "Jesus Walks" musician is embracing religion for publicity or personal profit.

"Some say that he is the Antichrist," Blake said. "Him go mad one day, then him say Trump the next day, and then him come with religion. If his motive is to get attention and stay relevant, then that is wrong."

Another local minister, Father Sean Major-Campbell, advised "caution" over the star's motives but thought the event was just an "entertainment option".

Others, including Jamaican dancehall producer Cordel 'Skatta' Burrell, are angry over the disruption brought by West's event, which has been backed by the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Burrell added: "His Jesus agenda is solely for the benefit of generating sales for his upcoming gospel album and he's only playing chess."

The rapper's gospel album, Jesus Is King, and an accompanying documentary film are due out next Friday, Oct. 25.

This is the first time West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revival outside the U.S.

Former musician Kanye West dropped the trailer to his much-anticipated IMAX gospel film "Jesus is King" on Friday.

The film is billed as a "one-of-a-kind experience" featuring songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition along with new music from his forthcoming album JESUS IS KING.

Jesus is King was filmed in the summer of 2019 and brings West's famed "Sunday Service" to life in visionary artist James Turrell's Roden Crater, a never-before-seen art installation in Arizona's Painted Desert.

The trailer opens with a graphic that appears to be golden steps leading up to a white obelisk as a Heavenly choir sings "Ohhhh! Saved by His Grace. It's in His will. His will."

The camera pans inside the white obelisk which is replaced by a blue background bearing a Bible verse.

"In the words of Jesus Christ, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel.' Mark 1:15."

West, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that today's generation needs Jesus more than ever. He utilizes the power of imagery and art interacting with gospel music to reach the unwashed masses.

The film opens in IMAX theaters on October 25, 2019.

Pastor Jamal Bryant caused waves at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church when he redirected Kanye West's donation to Atlanta's Morris Brown College in the name of Kanye's late mom, Donda West.

Kanye held his popular "Sunday Service" at Bryant's New Birth Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, Sept. 15.

Before the service Kanye presented Bryant with a sizable donation for the church.

But on Sunday, Oct. 13, Bryant told his congregation he didn't want Kanye's money after the rap musician expressed his support for President Trump and the Republican Party in Utah.

Johnny Nunez/WireImage

"Abraham Lincoln was the wig party, that's the Republican party that freed the slaves," Kanye told the crowd of about 9,000 worshipers in Utah.

Bryant was livid.

"I went into prayer, and it dawned on me in prayer that Dr. Donda West, who was the mother of Kanye West, is a former professor at Morris Brown College," Bryant said on Sunday.

Bryant said he was redirecting Kanye's donation to Morris Brown in Donda West's name.

"I am not a runaway slave," Bryant said.

"To that end, Mr. West made a significant donation to New Birth Cathedral, but I do not want to be guilty of double speech. I met with my team today and the donation that he made to our church, I am now redirecting.

"I am thankful for the gift, thankful the seed, thankful for the sacrifice but I don't want to be seen in any way, shape or form to be seen in cahoots with philosophy or with policies that keep our people in bondage.

Bryant went on to say he was "not a preacher that can be bought or comes with a price tag."

Morris Brown College has been in dire straits financially since losing its accreditation in 2002. Only 50 students out of 2,700 remain on the historic campus.

Fans of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't know what to make of the news that the rapper-turned preacher didn't attend his children's Baptism in Armenia, Kim's birthplace.

"Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip," Kim captioned the shots.

"So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia's main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church," Kim explained.

According to The Blast, it's unclear if 6-year-old North, who was already baptized in Jerusalem years ago, was a participant in this baptism.

But one person who was noticeably missing from the baptism was the children's father, Kanye.

According to several news outlets, the baptism happened on Monday and included Kim's three youngest children: Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 5 months.

But Kanye didn't witness the baptisms in Armenia, as he is busy preaching to the unwashed masses during his popular "Sunday Service" rolling gospel revival in the United States.

Kanye, a 42-year-old Gemini, recently took a break from his revival tour to meet up with former NBA player Rick Fox, 50, in his native Bahamas.

The stars went to the Bahamas to help rebuild communities that were negatively impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

Kanye West loved socialite Kim Kardashian before he even met her. The famed music producer says he had a "magnetic attraction" to Kim when the couple first met 10 years before they started dating.

In a new episode of the docuseries E! True Hollywood Story, airing on Sunday, Oct. 13, Kanye recalled the early days of their romance. The 42-year-old rapper gushed about the strong chemical attraction he felt for his "loving" and "courageous" future wife.

"Every time I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy," West says in a clip from the segment. "She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong."

The animal attraction wasn't as strong for Kim. The 38-year-old Libra reveals that her path kept crossing the rapper's before she deemed him worthy of dating in 2012.

"We just always kept connecting and coming into each other's lives," she adds. "And, then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and that's when it happened. That's when we started our relationship. "I was like, 'S--t! Why didn't this happen sooner?' It was just right."

Photo: WENN.com

The couple tied the knot on May 24, 2014. They share four children - two by IVF and a surrogate. The brunette beauty recalls Kanye was initially discouraged from being associated with her.

"Everyone would tell him, 'You can't be with her. She's a reality star. She's gonna sink your career'," she recalls. "And, he was just like, 'But I love her. I don't care'."

"People want to call me a coon because I chose my right - in America, we got the right, right? We got our own right to our opinions, right?

"Somebody trying to tell me, because of my color, who I'm supposed to pick as the president. You Black so you can't like Trump," Kanye said, as the crowd booed.

Kanye continued, "I ain't never made a decision only based off my color! That's a form of slavery - mental slavery!"

West also slammed social media users, adding, "Do not read comments on the Internet. These people don't know you like that. Social media is designed to make you think slower... They want to slow you down and control you."

According to WENN.com, the controversial rap star also touched on American prison reform, adding, “There's one in three African-Americans in jail in this country."

But there was no mention of his long-awaited and oft-delayed Jesus Is King album, which was expected to drop on September 27.

After months of delays, Kanye West's long-anticipated Jesus Is King gospel album is finally here. But not everyone is impressed.

Jesus Is King is just 35 minutes long and relies heavily on Biblical texts.

Fox News called Jesus Is King "an evangelical rant about the evils of the modern world."

Kanye held listening parties in Detroit, Chicago and New York City over the weekend. While in New York, Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian-West took their children, North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and 1-year-old Chicago West to Cipriani's for lunch before holding his Sunday Service.

After dropping his album Kanye surprised fans by announcing he will stop making secular music and focus only on gospel music.

The announcement was met with skepticism and shock.

Many social media users believe Kanye is suffering from a mental illness characterized by religious fanaticism.

Religious fanaticism is defined as an obsessive enthusiasm and hypercritical devotion to religion.

Religious fanaticism is linked to many psychiatric illness, including Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Anti-Social Personality Disorder, depression and anxiety.

Kanye West treated lucky fans to an advance preview of his album Jesus Is King in Detroit, Michigan on Friday night.

The rapper was supposed to drop his highly anticipated gospel album on Friday, but instead, he hastily organized a mystery fan get together in Detroit.

Earlier in the day, a spokesperson at the Fox Theater told Rolling Stone magazine the star booked the event on the same day and refused to share further details.

The spokesperson said he usually doesn't book the theater on the same day - but it's Kanye West!

Lucky ticket holders who attended the gathering, dubbed Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience, enjoyed a sneak preview of the long-awaited gospel album.

The event was free but ticket holders were asked to surrender their phones during the secretive event to prevent leaks. The preview session also featured a video clip from Kanye's upcoming IMAX documentary, Jesus Is Lord.

The Yeezy mogul's wife Kim Kardashian shared a clip online of fans cheering the star as he made a special appearance.

She later took to her Instagram stories to announce the project was set to drop on Sunday, in addition to more listening sessions to be held in his native Chicago and NYC.

"Kanye's doing a listening session in Chicago tomorrow, then NYC (New York City) Sunday. He's dropping the album Sunday. Just a few final tweaks to the mixes."

The 12-track album reportedly includes the previously released track "Water", which he debuted at one of his Sunday Service gospel gatherings earlier this year, along with tunes including "Follow God", "New Body", "Up From the Ashes", and "Sunday".

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris felt "exploited" when he and his long-suffering wife Tameka Harris attended Kanye West's Sunday Service at the invitation of mega church leader Jamal Bryant.

T.I. explained what was going through his mind in the photo below as he attended Kanye's Sunday service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta last weekend.

The "I'm Serious" rapper captioned the image, "Yeaaahhh Maaaan We MUST discuss what caused this look on my face in Sunday Service...."

T.I. said he was offended by the church shaking him down for a generous tithe before the service.

"When we sat down there was a whole new agenda. It was like they rung the red bell at the Player's Club," T.I. said, referring to the hit movie starring the late comedian Bernie Mac, and actors Jamie Foxx and LisaRaye.

“It's not that I have [anything] against pastors or against preachers so-to-speak. It's just I've been raised in the trenches and I was taught to peep game. You ain't [about to] run no game on me. I will not be extorted."

T.I.'s statement prompted Byrant to deny the allegations. In short, Bryant claims he nor his church put pressure on the rappers to open their wallets and tithe to the church.

"I don't want Sunday to be used as further ammunition as to why people don’t go to church without them knowing at this same church we gave 5000 pairs of new back to school shoes to kids of #Atlanta, or that we spearheaded 9 million campaign to support @bennett_college , or that we bailed out nonviolent offenders or that we partnered with @delta to send 4 cargo to #Bahamas for hurricane release or that we’ve partnered with @_hamptonu to place 95 displaced students or that we fed the furloughed workers for two weeks while the government was shut down or that we went into housing projects to feed kids of #dekalb county during spring break. For none of these projects were you solicited for a donation."

For the past 2 weeks rap producer Kanye West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revue on the road in America. The first stop was in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, where he preached to the unwashed masses last weekend.

This weekend Kanye brought his traveling gospel revue to Atlanta at the invitation of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church leader, Jamal H. Bryant.

The 42-year-old Gemini wore a white t-shirt and grey sweatpants. In video on the church's website, Kanye caught the Holy Ghost onstage in the packed mega church as the choir sang rousing gospel songs.

Kanye's Sunday Service started out as exclusive worship gatherings with his inner circle in a field in Calabasas, California.
 

One of the first things A$AP Rocky did when he was freed from a jail in Sweden was to reach out to his good friend Kanye West to let him know he would attend his Sunday Service in Calabasas, Calif. Rocky was arrested and jailed in a pre-trial detention center in Sweden following a street fight with 2 Afghan migrants on June 30.
