Kanye West confessed to his pastor that he considered quitting rap music completely and called it “the devil’s music.”

According to Complex, Kanye West’s pastor, Adam Tyson, said during an interview with Apologia Studios and discussed how West was completely done with rap music and called it the “devil’s music.”

“One time, he told me that he wasn’t going to rap. I said, ‘Why not?’ He said, ‘That’s the devil’s music.’ I said, ‘Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God. I think he was already thinking about it a little bit, but I definitely said, ‘Hey, bro. I think you need to use your talents that God’s given you and use that platform for God.'”

West started attending Tyson’s church, Placerita Bible Church, in May and confided in him about his spiritual journey.

“The guilt of sin brought him down low. He would say the devil basically brought him to a place where he just felt like he was in bondage to his sin. So he said, ‘I got delivered.’”
