Rapper and presidential aspirant, Kanye West made an appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience” on Saturday. He revealed that he was starting a Gospel University.
West talked for about three hours on his relationship with God, the music industry, his presidency bid, abortion, racism, and the desire to lead a free world. During the interview, he also revealed that he would reconsider reimagining Gospel music and starting a university.
“The songs that we’re doing at Sunday service is basically my book of hymns for the future gospel university that I’m creating,” West told Rogan.
“I’ve envisioned and will manifest a 200,000-seat stadium, circular, with 100,000 gospel singers.”
West, who has always been a visionary, has likened his university to training at the Olympics or professional sports.
“People will go to this university and train like a Russian Olympic swimmer. Like the picture, they will be in the pool six days a week, at least seven days a week,” he explained.
He further explained that people who sing for the church volunteer as a form of “tithe or pro bono.”
West added, “People don’t practice that as much as we practice going to studio to rap, or practice playing basketball for the NBA,”
“It’s making the NBA, so to say, the coliseum for God. Have you heard like soccer chants with 60,000 people? I envision that for God — 100,000 people sometimes singing in harmony.”
The rapper gave an example of what singers will sing in his school.
He sang as an example, “Glory, Glory / Lord of Glory, Lord of Glory / We raise our hands in praise.”
“Picture 100,000 people in unison and that feeling and what that would do for our spirits, our souls. It’s healing,” West described the impact the university would have on people.
During an interview with Nick Cannon on its podcast in September, Kanye West revealed that he had amassed million $50 million as seed he sowed into Sunday services in 2019 and that God had rewarded him immensely for it.
The presidential aspirant spoke openly about his confidence, his career, and his campaign for president. During the conversation which was shot at West’s ranch in Wyoming, he said that he had chosen to use a large part of his income in 2019 to spread the gospel.
“God had me stand in the gap, much like David. I’m a new Christian, I’m just a year recent convert, grew up in a church but I’m a recent convert,” he told Nick Cannon.
