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.

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."
