Kanye West has revealed that he has received a $ 68 million tax return this year, but the rapper believes he may not have been as happy if he had not recently turned to Christ.
West, 42, recently confirmed that he is a born-again Christian and while promoting his new album Jesus Is King on The Late Late Show with James Corden, he opened his finances.
& # 39; God uses me as a person. As modest as I can say, he used me to show off, & West started in the special Airpool Karaoke segment, which entered the airspace in a private jet instead of the usual car.
& # 39; Last year I earned $ 115 million and still got $ 35 million in debt & # 39 ;, he explained. & # 39; This year I looked up and just received $ 68 million for my tax. & # 39;
Kanye West appeared on Airpool Karaoke for The Late Late Show with James Corden and said: “I earned $ 115 million last year and still ended up with $ 35 million in debt. This year I looked up and just got $ 68 million back for my tax & # 39;
West added: "People need to hear someone – who has been put into debt by the system – are talking about these kinds of figures now that they are being served to Christ"
With his Sunday Service choir behind him, West shared that others may not reveal the details of the tax return so quickly, but that he is willing to do so if it means spreading the word and inspiring others to be saved.
& # 39; And people say they don't talk about these numbers, & # 39; he went on. & # 39; No, people need to hear someone – who has been put into debt by the system – to talk about these kinds of figures now that they are being served to Christ. & # 39;
West has been holding Sunday services since the beginning of the year.
He said on the program that with the success of his fashion company, the proof is that faith works wonders.
& # 39; God shows off! Yeezy (his brand) is worth $ 3 billion, the world's number one wanted brand, he shows, & exclaimed West and added: & # 39; Kanye West works for God! & # 39;
He appeared with his Sunday Service choir and said that God & # 39; is coming out & # 39; with its $ 3 billion Yeezy brand and the number 1 brand sought worldwide
West told Corden about God: & # 39; As humble as I can say, he uses me to show off & # 39;
It is not only religion that West hopes he can help fans push in, elsewhere in the chat he claimed that the marriage & # 39; not cool & # 39; was until he made the knot with Kim Kardashian in May 2014.
The rapper spoke frankly about his relationship with the 39-year-old, with whom he has been married for five years. But he claimed that marital years are longer than human years.
He went on to compare & # 39; marriage years & # 39; with & # 39; dog years & # 39 ;, with one dog year equal to seven human years, although each & # 39; year of marriage & # 39; is equal to 100 human years.
The rapper added that it feels like he's been & # 39; 500 years & # 39; is married to the star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Kanye continued: & # 39; People didn't think it would be cool to get married, and then I got married and people thought "oh that looks cool". & # 39;
As James joked: & # 39; Nobody ever thought it would be cool to marry Kim Kardashian. Everyone thought it would be cool to marry Kim & # 39 ;, Kanye was quick: & # 39; Well, not Kris Humphries! & # 39;
He continued: & # 39; It's more than cool, more than cool like hell or something, it's heavenly, it's amazing, it's beautiful. & # 39;
The rapper dropped his ninth studio album Jesus Is King last week and recently confirmed his born-again Christianity (pictured with his choir with Coachella in April)
Married life: Kanye also claimed that it feels like he has been & # 39; 500 years & # 39; is married and insisted that the marriage & # 39; not cool & # 39; until he tied the knot
Trendsetter: Kanye continued: & # 39; People thought it wouldn't be cool to get married, and then I got married and people thought "oh that looks cool". He was joking except for Kris Humphries
Then Chat focused on their family life, with Kanye discussing how he spends his evenings with Kim and their children North, six, Saint, three, and Chicago, 22 months, and Psalm, five months.
Yeezus' hit maker explained: & # 39; I don't like to use & # 39; going out at night, I like to be home with my family as much as possible.
& # 39; We eat dinner and we play with the children and we bring the children to bed and then we go to bed and my wife looks at Dateline and I read the Bible. & # 39;
James, who shares three children with his wife Julia Carey, then asked Kanye if he would recommend trying a fourth.
Kanye quickly encouraged the comedian and stated: & # 39; The richest thing you can have is as many children as possible. & # 39;
As James asked & you would roll for a fifth? & # 39 ;, Kanye responded quickly & # 39; for a seventh! & # 39; to explain that he and Kim agreed that seven children would be the ideal.
James had tried to get West on Carpool Karaoke to have Kanye canceled twice, but the third time was the charm, it seems.
Apart from the Carpool Karaoke session that took place in an airplane instead of in a car, Kanye marked another first, with the choir performing the first live performance in the history of the sketch.
Kanye also told how his friends and family, although they meant well, did not know how to reach him.
& # 39; People in my family prayed for me, but they couldn't call me and yell at me. I am a mature man, & Kanye said.
& # 39; But it was God who put this thing on my heart and asked if I was ready to serve him, & # 39; said Kanye and added: & # 39; I have no regrets and no shame. & # 39;
Kanye also played his song Song Jesus Walks from his album College Dropout from 2004, but he made subtle changes to the lyrics.
