Recording his latest album was a holy experience for Kanye West and his collaborators, whether they wanted it to be or not.
The Ghost Town rapper sat down with Zane Lowe for his Apple Music Beats 1 show this week to tease his hotly anticipated LP, Jesus Is King.
During the chat, Ye revealed he went all out to make sure his colleagues were living their best, purest lives while the album was coming together — which apparently included a ban on premarital sex!

Kanye — who in the interview referred to himself as “unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time” — said to the host:
“There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album. There were times where I went to people that were working on other projects and said, can you just work and focus on this? I thought if we could all focus and fast – families who pray together stay together.”
And the collaborators who abstain together… produce better music?
That’s how Yeezy sees it, evidently. Consider it the opposite of what we assume to be R. Kelly’s recording mantra (which probably isn’t a bad thing).
Elsewhere in the interview, Kim Kardashian West’s husband reflected on his own history with sex, revealing he was exposed to pornography from a young age and was addicted to sex after the death of his mother in 2007.
“Some people drown themselves in drugs, and I drown myself in my addiction: sex.”
His other, potentially more dangerous addiction? Sharing his opinion.

The father-of-four then reminisced about the time he made liberals everywhere groan in frustration by putting on a MAGA hat in support of Donald Trump, remembering:
“For the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on was God’s practical joke to all liberals. Like, ‘No! Not Kanye!’”
“No! Not Kanye!” will also likely be the reaction of the masses when the 42-year-old decides to run for president. Yes, he's still saying that's happening.
The Grammy winner said of his inevitable future in politics:
“There will be a time when I will be the president of the US and I will remember… any founder that didn’t have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing.”
Let’s just hope he doesn’t ban premarital sex in the White House. The Kardashians can’t reform America’s prisons in those conditions!
