N.O.R.E. has weighed in on Kanye West’s new gospel album, Jesus Is King, calling it “trash” during a recent interview.
The Drink Champs cohost stopped by Nick Cannon’s new morning show on Power 106, where he made the following remarks:
“It’s trash,” he said when asked about the project. “I heard the album. I love you, Kanye. I buy your sneakers – I feel like Jesus ain’t even co-sign this one. Jesus was like, yo, Ye….”
He continued: “I know you smashed Kardashians before. I didn’t mean to say it like that. I love Kim, Kim is my hero right now. For jail reform, what she’s doing. Kim is my favorite person in the world right now. But I feel like she didn’t hear this album.”
N.O.R.E was also annoyed that Ye chose to give Zane Lowe an interview on Beats 1 rather than sit down with he and DJ EFN:
“I’ ma be honest, I’m a hater,” he added. I’m kind of a hater. Let me explain why. Zane Lowe is a person that I respect, but I don’t respect … As a person whose made The War Report album, I’ve done records with Mariah Carey. So when I see a Kanye, a Drake, a J. Cole, a Pusha T, and I see you ever go to any place other than [Drink Champs], the culture, I have a problem with that.”
