Kanye West‘s album was a no-show, but the guy himself is keeping the good word going — now, he’s in Utah preaching … and possibly raining on some Mormons’ parade.
Ye was in Salt Lake City, UT Saturday, where he held his weekly Sunday Service — which is starting to become a multi-day event now — and funny enough … it also happened to be a huge weekend for followers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
This weekend served as one of two annual get-togethers Mormons put on called “general conferences,” and Kanye set up camp across the street from one at the Gateway center.
Looks like some folks attending the conference — or who might have otherwise — flocked to catch a bit of Ye as well. And, by flock … we actually mean swarm, as seen here.
Regarding how the Service went … by most accounts online, it sounds like it went off without a hitch. Not only that, but a very introspective Ye took some time to preach to the crowd too, discussing topics like God, social media … and societal perceptions/control.
He’s touched on some that same stuff with us before — but this time it was more chill, with the backdrop of his hit song “Jesus Walks” being played in the background.
The point — as far as we can tell — is that Kanye is becoming more comfortable with preaching, and way more comfortable talking about his relationship with the man upstairs.
Still no word on when that album’s gonna drop though … bummer.
