Nicki Minaj Says Kanye West Told Her He’s A “Born-Again Christian”
Kanye West’s “Sunday Services” revelations continue.
Now, in a new clip obtained by TMZ, it seems that that wasn’t the only revelation made inside of Goerge Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium this weekend.
“I want to let you know that I am not here for your entertainment this afternoon,” West admitted. “We are here to spread the gospel […] excuse me if I mispronounce anything,” he added. “I am a recent convert. It means I recently got saved within this year.”
While his relationship with the Christian faith is peppered throughout his catalog, this does mark the first time that Kanye West has professed any confirmation of his religion. The new revelation adds to the narrative surrounding Kanye’s recent moves, reportedly moving away from secular music and even having his children baptized in Armenia.
“If somebody cusses in his presence, I’ve heard him say a couple of times, ‘Hey, man, you can’t cuss when you’re with me. I’m a born-again Christian,'” Adam Tyson, Kanye’s pastor, previously revealed. “Who’s gonna say that if they’re not meaning that they want Christ to be exalted in all that they do? [He told me], ‘From now on, all I want to do is serve Christ. I want every song that I sang, to have part of my testimony, to include the gospel, and to include the element of worship to our great God. That’s what I want to do.'”

The outlet would go on to highlight Tekashi’s newfound identity as a snitch and questioned Tinase’s conviction that the NEw yorker could bounce back.
“You’re saying a lot of people would work with him?”
She replied: “All I know is that the music business is not one to deny someone who’s going to make them money and Tekashi 6ix9ine is definitely someone who’s really gonna, not only make them money but entice a lot of conversation. So, do I think he’ll get a deal? Absolutely.
When asked if she’d ever personally get in the booth with the rapper, though, her tune was much less optimistic: “I don’t know about that.

Summer Walker makes history with her debut.
It marks the biggest week in units earned for an R&B album by a female artist in over three years with the last project by a female R&B artist to earn a greater number being Beyonce‘s Lemonade which earned 202,000 units in 2016 during its third week on the list.

Similar to its hip-hop counterparts, the 134,000 total was largely comprised of streaming equivalent units as 119,000 came from streaming activity, translating to 154.7 million on-demand audio streams, making it the largest streaming week ever for an R&B album by a woman. Among all acts, it comes in second only to The Weeknd‘s Starboy, which earned 175.2 million on-demand streams in its debut week.
Executive produced by London On Da Track, the effort arrived last week via Walker’s LVRN/Interscope deal and marked just her second full-length offering since breaking onto the scene around this time last year with her Last Day Of Summer effort. Next up, Walker is scheduled to embark on a headlining run that will kick off in the UK next week before returning to the states to conclude in her hometown of Atlanta in December.
EarthGang’s Doctur Dot Blames Dreamville’s Parent Label For “Mirrorland” Holdup
Ari Lennox makes a new revelation.
It was Sunday evening that the Dreamville siren uploaded a message that read, “Looking for a lawyer and new management”
She would, of course, clarify that this new announcement leaves her status with Dreamville untouched, rather focusing on her personal management team previously consisting of Paris Hines and Justin Lamotte. The duo has been instrumental in the recent breakout that Ari has experienced. Save for a few enigmatic follow-ups, the reason for the split is still unclear.
“I’m so happy to know who truly cares about my well being,” she said. “It’s damn sure not certain people that I thought.”
“People want to be there for the accolades but not the real grind,” she penned in a later tweet. “People love you when you’re the sweet baby doll but not when you’re human. Don’t want no more fake soulless shit around me.”
Hines, who also functions as one-half of the managmeent team behind Lucky Daye, doubled as Ari lennox’s stylist as well, hailing from the singer’s native DMV area.
“In the music industry, [black women] are the minority when it comes to management and artist development, so that gives us leverage to really be seen and heard,” Hines previously told Essence. “[…] Black women are the influencers, the culture shifters, and the ones who intuitively knows what works and what doesn’t. Being a Black woman in music is such a beautiful thing right now.
