West, 42, recently confirmed he is a born again Christian and while promoting his new album Jesus Is King on The Late Late Show with James Corden, opened up about his finances.
‘God is using me, as a human being. As humbly as I can put it, he’s using me to show off,’ West began in the special Airpool Karaoke segment, which took to the skies in a private jet rather than the usual car.
‘Last year I made a $115million and still ended up $35million in debt,’ he explained. ‘This year I looked up and I just got $68million returned to me on on my tax.’
With his Sunday Service choir behind him, West shared that while others might not be so quick to disclose details of the tax refund, he is willing to do so if it means helping spread the word and inspiring others to be saved.
‘And people say don’t talk about these numbers,’ he continued. ‘No, people need to hear someone – who has been put into debt by the system – talk about these kind of numbers now that they’re serviced to Christ.’
West has been holding his Sunday Service worship services since the beginning of the year.
He said on the program that with the success of his fashion business too, it’s proof having faith works wonders.
‘God is showing off! Yeezy [his brand] is worth $3billion dollars, number one searched brand in the world, he’s showing out,’ West exclaimed, adding: ‘Kanye West works for God!’
Kanye also performed his hit song Jesus Walks from his 2004 album College Dropout, but he made some subtle changes to the lyrics.
