Plot Twist! On Friday Kanye West finally dropped his long-awaited gospel album Jesus Is King, but instead of Kanye receiving all the praise it went to Kenny G and Kirk Franklin.
Yep you read that right. Within hours of it’s release, Ye’s 9th album was trending on Twitter but not in a good way. Fans for the most part were not impressed and gave him a good ole dragging.

And then there was the Kirk Franklin thread. Apparently Ye’s album was so bad folks couldn’t help but compare him to Kirk Franklin who they felt was the real MVP of Hip Hop Gospel.
Have yall niggas never heard of Kirk Franklin??? https://t.co/SQpiRmFK4D

Seriously as funny as it all is, we don’t think Kirk or Kenny asked to be in this.
