Kanye West has disclosed how he ‘wrestled’ with the devil emotionally and overpowered him during his transitioning into Christianity.
The rap superstar, who has now become a full-time Christian and has been preaching the gospel during the latter part of last year and this year, said he had a huge problem with alcoholism but he managed to overcome it
He said: “There was some vodka in the refrigerator at my office, and sometimes I would just go ahead and take a drink from it in the middle of the day.
I was walking toward that kitchenette area, and I stopped myself and I said, ‘Devil you’re not gonna finna beat me today,’ and it’s something that we take on, day by day.
“Every day that I don’t pick up that drink, I beat the devil.
“I’ve been to the mental hospital and back, working for the devil.
“But Jesus saves. No matter how long you’ve been away, no matter how long you’ve been in the dark, the light is right there, ready to save to give you the confidence,” he concluded.
