Californian pastor Adam Tyson, also the pastor of superstar Kanye West, has spoken about his relationship with the rapper.

Tyson appeared on the Pure Flix podcast, where he discussed how he met Ye as well as Ye's popular Sunday Service.

"He started meeting with me in my office [after service]," Tyson shared. "And I spent about three hours just going through the gospel, make sure he understood clearly about the atonement of Jesus Christ … and he's like, 'Hey, man, I told you I've been radically saved. I believe that message, and I want to get that message out to the world.'" 

Tyson claims that Kanye told him, "I was just under the weight of my sin. And I was being convicted that I was running from God. And I knew I needed to make things right. So, I came to Christ. I came out of darkness into the light."

Some have criticized Yeezy's Sunday Service for being nothing more than a money-making scam - but Tyson says Kanye's love of the lord is true. He also revealed that he has been in the studio helping Ye finish up his Jesus Is King album:

"He wants me to listen to different lyrics, different songs and help tweak parts of it," Tyson explained. "It's not like I'm writing the song. It's all of his work. He's the complete creator, creative kind of guy. He's the musician. I'm just making comments the way I see it [on] how to articulate the gospel more clearly, and how to include the component of worship, which that was his idea.
