Kanye West has revealed that he asked his fellow Jesus Is King collaborators to abstain from sex while recording the album.

"Now that I'm in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me," West told Zane Lowe during an interview for Beats 1.

"There were times when I was asking people to fast during the album," he said. "This is gonna be radical what I'm about to say ... There were times when I was asking people to not have premarital sex while they were working on the album."

The rapper went on to say that there were "times when I went to people that were working on other projects and said, 'Could you just work and focus on this?' "

He added: "I thought if we could all focus and fast, I mean it's known families that pray together stay together."

Was it Ye's place to ask his peers to abstain from sex while working with him?
