Ken and Osahon Obazuaye talk about hip-hop and one of rap's biggest names: Kanye West, who just won Billboard's top honors as a "Christian artist." Ken remembers Bob Dylan's conversion to Christianity and his classic album, Slow Train Coming (1979). Osahon names Kanye's first and favorite album - College Drop Out as the one that captured his imagination and keen loyalty. His follow-up album, Through the Wire, was born out of a tragic automobile accident that could well have ended Kanye's life. Kanye made the general headlines with a criticism of George Bush. Kanye and his mother, a college English professor, were very close. When she died at age 58 due to a botched surgery, Kanye drifted into deep grief. The two discuss Kanye's high-profile conversion to Christianity. Jesus is King, according to Osahon, is not a high-quality album. Osahon discusses both salvation and "soul care." Donda, named for his mother, is the album that won the Billboard Awards (primarily related to the volume of sales). The Kanye West Foundation has engaged a broad range of causes, few of the right-wing.
