The Verdict Is In: Kanye West’s “Jesus Is King” is Legit CHH

The New CHH

Jesus Is King album by Kanye West had the music world turned upside down as he released his Christian Hip Hop/Gospel album Friday October 25, 2019. After a full day of deejays, artists, and pastors reviewing the album, the controversies and criticisms go wild. Not only from the Christian community, but also the non-Christian fan-base.  Some critics have given a negative review of his album, as appeasing Trump supporters. Others criticize the reaction by some other Christian Hip Hop artists as just a jealous rant. But, after further review by a solid Christian DJ community, it’s a hit.

Listen to the Full Album, plus bonus materials (interviews and reviews):

Jesus Is King is the ninth studio album by American rapper Kanye West. The album follows a religious theme, with West describing it as “an expression of the gospel.” West had formed his Sunday Service group in January 2019, performing gospel songs and covers of songs from his discography. The album was released simultaneously with a concert film of the same name on October 25, 2019 [ Wikipedia ]. Trending at #2 on YouTube was Selah (a possible boost for CHH artist Selah the Corner). But one of the most interesting tracks is “Closed on Sunday” with Chick-fil-A references.


Closed on Sunday, you’re my Chick-fil-A
Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A
Hold the selfies, put the ’Gram away
Get your family, y’all hold hands and pray
When you got daughters, always keep ’em safe
Watch out for vipers, don’t let them indoctrinate
Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A
You’re my number one, with the lemonade
Raise our sons, train them in the faith
Through temptations, make sure they’re wide awake
Follow Jesus, listen and obey
No more livin’ for the culture, we nobody’s slave

Stand up for my home
Even if I take this walk alone
I bow down to the King upon the throne
My life is His, I’m no longer my own
I pray to God that He’ll strengthen my hand
They will think twice steppin’ onto my land
I draw the line, it’s written in the sand
Try me and you will see that I ain’t playin’
Now, back up off my family, move your hands
I got my weapons in the spirit’s land
I, Jezebel don’t even stand a chance
Jezebel don’t even stand a chance
