Chance The Rapper joined Nicki Minaj for a special episode 14 of Queen Radio last Friday (July 26) to talk everything surrounding his The Big Day debut, which Minaj notched a pair of features on. When the conversation moved into Chance's relationship with God and how its impacted his marriage, Nicki revealed that Kanye West told her that he's a born-again Christian. 

"Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or are aren’t spiritual as we are, and stuff like that," she said. "Then when you find people, because I just was with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now. Like my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything."

Chance followed-up by calling Kanye one of the most supportive people in his life at the moment. "That's fellowship and it's strengthening each other,' he relayed of his friendship with Yeezy. "There's not as few people as you think that use God as their strength. He lets me talk very freely about what I like or dislike or what I feel we could do better. Imagine having an amazing friend that's loyal, supports you, and wants to see you do great, and that person being Kanye West."
