Recently, Gospel Artist Tye Tribbett stopped by SFPL TV to talk about being added to the line-up of this year’s McDonald’s Gospelfest entitled “Honor Thy Mother” along with Karen Clark-Sheard, as a surprise addition to the annual concert. This marks Tye’s second time being apart of the annual event, produced and directed by Emmy Award winning Producer A. Curtis Farrow.
Tye also spoke about Religion, the expansion of Gospel Music paired with Secular Music, a New Album in the works, wanting to work with Chris Brown, Fashion, Kanye West, Social Media, Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton, Racism, and a hint of possibly being apart of Reality TV and more.
His thoughts on Kanye West and the public attacking him, while in the midst of commenting on the light of social media:
Kanye West, specifically, on Rolling Stone magazine, he had the crown of thorns on his head, he calls himself Yeezus, everybody had a billion things to say about Kanye, who I love very much. However, he’s in transition, God is doing something in him — his journey may be taking longer than yours was or whatever. But as an artist, I wouldn’t give people the ammunition.
Check out the full interview below:
