Nov 24, 2019 • 6 min
Kanye So y’all heard Kanye is now on the “narrow path”. He is now responding to God’s call. The purpose of this episode is not to praise him or criticize him, it’s not my place, nor is it anyone’s. So is it legit? I personally don’t think it really…

51: Wednesday Wisdom #8
Mar 6, 2019 • 5 min
