Gospel music icon, Kirk Franklin has heaped praises on Music Mogul, Kanye West while explaining why there should never be a Mt. Rushmore of Gospel.
According to the Gospel singer, only one face should be on the Mt. Rushmore of Gospel, leaving us to guess who that could be. While out and about, Franklin was stopped by fans and the paparazzi, and for a moment, a TMZ cameraman was able to milk a few questions before the Grammy winner was pulled away.
TMZ wanted to know Franklin’s thoughts about Kanye West entering and dominating the gospel arena. Well, first of all, anybody can do gospel music. It’s because gospel music is for any of God’s children, man. And if anybody thinks that there’s a monopoly on the gospel, that’s a very arrogant mindset, he said.
The paparazzo wanted to know if Kanye deserved placement on the Mt. Rushmore of Gospel because Franklin would certainly be on it. I shouldn’t be. It shouldn’t be no Mt. Rushmore of gospel music. I just think he’s one of the greatest artists of all time. He’s an incredible artist.
