Kirk Franklin Blasts Christians For Criticizing His Relationship With Kanye West
Kanye West has been making headlines for months prepping for the huge release of his latest album:
WAVES, Good Azz Job, SWISH, T.L.O.P. but his decision to work with gospel singer Kirk Franklin has caused some major drama.
The rapper performed his single “Ultralight Beam” with Kelly Price, Chance The Rapper, The Dream and Kirk Franklin on Saturday Night Live last night.
Kanye tweeted earlier this month that he wanted his latest effort to be a “gospel album” and snapped a photo with the legendary Christian singer in the studio…
Kirk took to his IG to give his critics a ho sit down for blasting his work with Kanye. Check out the post below:

Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with. No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on. Before one song was released, I was crucified because my brother asked me to take a picture. Again "no Kanye, you're not good enough"? No. That is a dangerous message I believe we send to the world when our posture is they have to meet certain requirements before they are worthy to kiss the ring. It says people are not redeemable, forgivable or candidates for grace. That my friend is religious. I will not turn my back on my brother. I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he'll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I'm sorry he's not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace…and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won't stop me from running. Pray we win.
Sit down haters because Jesus already took the wheel! Do you think gospel artists should work with secular musicians??
