Kanye West’s Airpool Karaoke Gospel: The Lord Is My Shepherd, and He’s Also Great for Taxes

The streets? So passé and definitely not spiritual. Kanye West was nice enough to invite noted karaoke enthusiast James Corden to join him (and his Sunday Service) for a ride in the friendly skies, where, when they weren’t vibing to some Jesus Is King jams, they pulled this one out of the conversational bucket: the IRS. Turns out, West CPA sees a direct correlation with his spirituality and milking more out of the federal government, wisdom that he wants to share with you, confused reader.

“As humbly as I can put it, He’s using me to show off,” West explained. “Last year I made $115 million and still ended up $35 million in debt. This year, I looked up and I just got $68 million returned to me in my tax returns. People say to me, ‘Oh, don’t talk about these numbers,’ but people need to hear someone who had been put into debt by the system talk about these kinds of numbers now that they’re in service to Christ.” Or rather: “Kanye West works for God!” Remember, memorizing one Psalm is equal to claiming one person as your dependent. We’re pretty sure.
