New York, NY – Fans of Kanye West expected to hear ‘Ye’s ninth studio Jesus Is King on Friday (September 27). Par for the course, the project failed to materialize on its scheduled release date.
Then, Kim Kardashian assured people the album would arrive on Sunday (September 29) in one of her Instagram Stories. Once again, it never surfaced. But during ‘Ye’s listening party in New York City over the weekend, somebody recorded the entire project and put in on YouTube.
According to Chicago music industry insider and Valee’s manager Andrew Barber, this album marks a pivotal moment ‘Ye’s career.
On Saturday (September 28), Barber tweeted Kanye plans to abandon secular music for good and will now put all of his energy into making spiritual music.
Kanye also announced that he is no longer making secular music. Only Gospel from here on out.

Earlier this summer, Kanye told Nicki Minaj he was a born-again Christian. She touched on the subject during a July episode of Queen Radio.
“Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or are aren’t spiritual as we are, and stuff like that,” she said. “So we automatically go to the normal, ‘Oh, what up?’
“Then when you find people, because I just was with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now. Like my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything.”
