Nicki Minaj recently hosted episode 14 of Queen Radio with special guest Chance The Rapper. During their conversation, Nicki revealed Kanye West told her he’s a reborn Christian, which isn’t necessarily surprising when factoring in his Sunday Service events.
Nicki made the reveal as she and Chance discussed religion, spirituality and God.
“I want to touch on, just briefly real quick, and I’m going to go,” Nicki said. “Because I felt the same exact way. Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or are aren’t spiritual as we are, and stuff like that. So we automatically go to the normal, ‘Oh, what up?’
“Then when you find people, because I just was with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now. Like my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything.”
She also implied her boyfriend Kenneth Petty, who recently obtained a marriage license for the couple, has a strong sense of faith.
“To everybody listening, if you have a man that says he don’t believe in God … one time somebody told me this, that, ‘I don’t believe in God,’ and it scared the living hell out of me,” she said. “I ran like there was no tomorrow. So I just want to say, because a man needs a strong woman in his life, like whether that woman is praying or meditating or just supporting you or giving you those talks, people don’t understand how far that goes for men.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Chance and Nicki discussed his new album, The Big Day, the best verse he’s ever written in his life (“We Go High”) and his own relationship with ‘Ye. Listen to the full episode here.
