Kanye West Talks Overcoming Alcohol Addiction: “I Beat The Devil”

If anyone has been transparent of their journey to Jesus, it has been Kanye West. Kanye West appeared at Awaken 2020 and shares how he overcame his alcohol addiction, telling the crowd “I beat the devil.”

West shared his transition to Christ has “brought back” his clarity. “They always say the devil try to play a trick on somebody, but it’s like God getting the last laugh. I started with this song, and this whole time, the devil thought he had me… This a Trojan horse if I ever seen one,” the rapper says after performing his single “Jesus Walks” with his Sunday service choir.

“He brought back my clarity. That’s where I found the truth. See, I’ve been the mental hospital and back, working for the devil. They didn’t think I was gonna get out. They had already grabbed the shovels. They said, ‘There’s something wrong with his head. So his career is dead.’ … But Jesus saves. No matter how long you’ve been away, no matter how long you’ve been in the dark, the light is right there, ready to save, to give you the confidence.”

Kanye West

In the past, West has been open about his addiction to opioids and porn. Now the Chicago rapper adds something new to the list and opens up about his addiction with alcohol, sharing the negative impact that it once had on his life. West referred to his infamous 2009 VMA’s stage crash with Taylor Swift.

“I was drinking on the red carpet, and then running on stage a few minutes later,” he told the crowd. “And everyone around said, ‘Nah, he ain’t really no alcoholic.’”

West then explains how he was able to kick his bad habit to the curb.

“There was some vodka in the refrigerator at my office, and sometimes I would just go ahead and take a drink from it in the middle of the day, and I was walking toward that kitchenette area, and I stopped myself and I said, ‘Devil you’re not gonna finna beat me today. Every day that I don’t pick up that drink, I beat the devil,” he told the audience.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Support The Community, Rents Out Movie Theater for People to See ‘Just Mercy’ for Free

With all of the high profile attention that Kanye and Kim get for silly things when they reach back to communities (especially those that they seemingly have no contact with), you have to take pause and congratulate them on their philanthropic efforts.

Thus we stop and salute them for paying for hundreds to see the social justice movie about Bryan Stevenson’s life, Just Mercy.

According to Koco ABC 5 News, Kimye did a theater buy out in Oklahoma City with a group called “Represent Justice.” OKC will not be the only city that they will sponsor movie visits to. They will also do screenings in Washington DC, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami.

There is a strong development in both of these Hip-Hop darlings lives that may have compelled their support: Kanye has recently converted to Christianity and according to the prophet Micah, he most do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with his God, and Kim has invested a sizable amount of energy in advocating for prisoners and probably inspired by Stevenson and his work.

Michelle Obama’s 2020 Work Out Playlists Includes The Carters, Cardi B, Burna Boy, and More

It’s the new year and it’s safe to say fitness was at the top of some of our resolutions. Michelle Obama took to social media to share her 2020 work out playlist on Spotify.

The playlist features upbeat tracks like “Drogba (Joanna)” by Afro B, “One Kiss” from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa, “Soulmate” by Lizzo and “Clique” by Kanye West, Big Sean and JAY-Z. She even threw in some nostalgic tunes like Jennifer Lopez’s “Feelin’ So Good” (feat. Big Fun and Fat Joe) and “Feels Good” by Tony! Toni! Toné!

Mrs. Obama also has you covered with the cooldown part of your work out. You can breathe and stretch to soothing records like “Lay Me Down” by Sam Smith, “Godspeed” by Frank Ocean and “Show Me Love” by Alicia Keys (feat. Miguel).

The Obamas have built a reputation for sharing their music interests. Michelle Obama made a Valentine’s Day playlist for Barack Obama last year, and the former President closed 2019 sharing his favorite songs of 2019.

Listen to our forever First Lady’s playlist below:

Kanye West Plans on Bringing Sunday Service to Europe and Africa

By: Amira Lawson

In the midst of Kanye’s newfound faith in his religion, fans have gotten to see another side of the rapper musically with the introduction to his Sunday Service. Since the choir is enjoyed by many across the world, West seems to want to bring his shows worldwide, now including touring Africa and Europe.

Sources close to Kanye reveal that the rapper is no longer interested in touring with the choir to his traditional tour locations. With Sunday Service being on a weekly basis, when the worldwide tour comes into effect, Kanye plans to space out his touring dates more than usual. West also plans to team up with Joel Osteen, later this year to play at the Yankee Stadium in May, as part of Osteen’s Night of Hope tour.

Reports allow revealing that the Chicago rapper is planning to follow up his first Christian album, Jesus Is Born with another album featuring the Sunday Service choir. It’s looking like it is unlikely for Kanye to return to producing secular music, as the rapper really seems to enjoy his new lifestyle in the music industry.
