Church Rejects Kanye West’s Donation Over Trump Support

[Hot New Hip Hop] The Sunday Service Tour may be upsetting to some, but Kanye West continues to visit churches, colleges, and concert venues nationally spreading his message of faith and music. The Jesus Is King artist has held off on delivering his highly-anticipated record, aside from playing the album in its entirety for a Detroit audience, but that hasn’t stopped him from ruffling a few feathers with his comments about President Donald Trump, new slaves, and black America. No matter how controversial his personal beliefs are to some, Kanye is welcomed with open arms.

Pastor Jamal Bryant was one of those who was more than happy to have Kanye show up to his house of worship, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta, for a surprise Sunday Service performance. If you recall, T.I. called out Bryant on his ExpediTIously podcast because he felt that the church “exploited” him when they took a second offering after he showed up with Tiny, Future, and Future’s wife. Later, T.I. and Bryant came to an understanding on social media, and since that time, all has been quiet about Kanye’s appearance at New Birth.

However, Bryant recently addressed his congregation online and at his church to let them know that Kanye gave them a significant donation. Not long after receiving the funds, Bryant claims he consulted with his team and decided they didn’t want to keep the money because of the rapper’s support of Trump.
