The first video from Ye’s Jesus Is King album, just made it’s debut.
It’s been two weeks since Kanye dropped his highly anticipated gospel album Jesus Is King. Since the announcement of Yandhi, eager fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new Ye era. What people didn’t know was, just how much of a NEW Ye, they would be getting.
JIK, marks the end of one era and the beginning of another. Many fans who may have been skeptical about the project have seemingly been won over as this album mark’s Kanye’s ninth consecutive album to debut at No. 1, tying him with Eminem for the overall record.
“Follow God” is the leading single off JIK, possibly because it’s reminiscent of early Kanye. The video was shot in Wyoming on the rapper’s recently purchased $14 million dollar 4,500 acre ranch; and shows Kanye and his Dad roaming the property together.
Kanye announced the video’s release with a note that read, “My dad came to visit me at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming. He talked about his love for fishing, and how he would come here in the summers. It took me 42 years to realize that my dad was my best friend. He asked me, ‘How many acres is this?’ I told him 4000. He replied with these three words, ‘A black man?’
