Rapper DMX held a Bible study on Instagram over the weekend. During the live broadcast, he urged his fans to accept Jesus in their hearts. The “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” rapper said he woke up earlier in the day with “chills” and felt led to talk to his fans about Scripture. Who knew […]
Kanye West’s Sunday Service at Coachella generated a lot of buzz over the weekend but not all of it had to do with the service itself.
West recently launched some new merchandise on Easter Sunday, including two pairs of socks for $50 which left a lot of Twitter users not only baffled, but also offended.

Not sure that makes the price point any better.
The socks for sale are labeled “Church Socks” and “Jesus Walks” which was also the name of the title he released as the forth single from his debut album “The College Dropout.”

Another reason many users were upset was the fact that he was selling this merchandise on Easter Sunday.
One Twitter user wrote, “Kanye really out her selling $50 socks that say ‘Jesus Walks’ on Easter Sunday.”
