Kanye West stopped by Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of his Sunday Service choir.
While there, he spoke about Sunday Service, homelessness, and being called secular. ‘Ye told the crowd that people can call him “bizarre” for painting himself silver for the debut of his opera Mary earlier this month, “but don’t call me secular.” The Jesus Is King artist continued, “Because secular is trying to say that I’d do anything for anyone other than Christ. That’s where they got it messed up. That’s where they got it twisted.” While he doesn’t call him out by name, and it’s unclear if he is even alluding to him, the Shade Room pointed out that Drake recently used the word while talking about Kanye in his Rap Radar interview, so this could be construed as a response to his rival.
In the all-encompassing discussion, Drake addressed whether “Sicko Mode” would be the last time he reignites his on-again, off-again feud with Kanye. “I guess. I don’t know. I mean, he’s, you know…God bless him on his new journey, but he’s making…I don’t even know if he’s ever going to make secular music again,” he said, before admitting to his confusion over the difference between secular and non-secular. “But yeah, if he turns up on me again, I’ll turn up on him. That’s just what it is. I’m always down.” Secular, according to Vocabulary.com, means to “describe things, activities, or attitudes that have nothing to do with religion.”
While at Union Rescue Mission, Kanye also said that Sunday Service “saved my life.” He continued, “This thing was an alternative to opioids. This thing was an alternative to pornography.”
Kanye’s Sunday Service Choir album Jesus Is Born was released on Christmas Day. The project features 19-tracks.
