– Kanye West credits Chance the Rapper for reconnecting him with his root and faithAmerican rapper Kanye West said his relationship with God has gotten stronger and it was Chance the Rapper that he has to thank for it!
He said Chance the Rapper helped him reconnect to his Christian faith and it is greatly impacting his family.
“You have to see and feel how happy I am and how strong my family is,” West tweeted. “We are even stronger because of this through the love and grace of God.”
“I need to speak about how Chance demanding that we record in Chicago reconnected me with my roots and also my faith in Jesus Christ,” he said. Over the summer, the two performers came together to create a joint album in a Chicago studio. According to XXL Mag, Chance and West did not complete the album but apparently, their time together was an opportunity for Chance to share some of his faith with the controversial trailblazer enough to stir his faith back up.

Chance is currently on his own religious mission. At the top of the month, he announced that he’s leaving the country to “learn the Word of God,” acknowledging that while he was raised in a Christian home, he’s essentially “unfamiliar” with the Bible.
“I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical,” the artist wrote in a recent Instagram post. “I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ, but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple of days and read my Bible. We all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like, but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW His Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it.”
West has talked about his faith in the past. While on TMZ earlier this year, the self-professed freethinker also talked about God, saying that although people might not always agree with one another, God calls us to love one another.
