Kanye West makes his way back to Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Kanye West made a surprise visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night (October 24th.) He was there to celebrate the release of his new album Jesus is King. One tiny problem — the album still hasn’t actually been released yet. (At one point during the brief talk with Kimmel, Kanye said the album was out at midnight, with Kimmel saying “so right now.” A reminder that Jimmy Kimmel Live! isn’t actually live.)
During his time on the show he talked about his new Christian focus. When Kimmel asked him if he was a Christian Music artist now, Kanye said:
I’m just a Christian everything.
At one point West put his focus on a man in the stands: David Johnson, who won the lottery at the top of the year. Johnson was wearing a Gucci jacket, Kanye talked about all the land investments he made recently in middle America. He then said:
Putting ourselves on TV, we always have to show this luxury. I’ve got a cheap-ass hoodie on, and I’m a billionaire.
As of Friday morning (October 25th), Jesus is King still has not been released. Kanye West did send a tweet saying that they are fixing the mixes on three tracks, “Everything We Need,” “Follow God,” and “Water.”
“JESUS IS KING”
