Kanye wants to focus on performing more of his new music

Kanye West’s ninth album, a gospel album titled “Jesus is King,” came out last week, and the rapper says he’s done with his old music. After a struggle with bipolar disorder, for which he was hospitalized in 2016, a West insider told TMZ that he was devoting his life to his Christian faith.

“Sources close to Kanye tell us he’s 100% serious when he says he’ll never perform his old music in its original form again,” TMZ reported. “We’re told he’s hell-bent on his newfound faith — and will continue to create the music HE wants — which hasn’t been well received so far.”

Many fans and critics alike complained that “Jesus is King” feels “incomplete” or like a “demo,” according to TMZ. The ablum consists of eleven songs and runs for just under a half-hour.

West has had his share of controversies over the course of his career. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, he famously said that then-President George W. Bush “does not care about black people.” At the 2009 Video Music Awards, he snatched the microphone from Taylor Swift, who was giving her acceptance speech, and said the award should have gone to Beyonce. More recently, West has refashioned himself as a strong Christian and a supporter of President Trump.

But the West insider told TMZ that West will continue to speak his mind, and fans can expect similar music from the rapper, only with more “G-rated” lyrics and Gospel influences.
