Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Kanye West's song Praise God reflect both praise and worship to God and a defiance to the devil. The first half of the song features an excerpt from Gwendolyn Brooks’ “Speech to the Young: Speech to the Progress Toward,” which speaks about persevering through hardships and maintaining faith and hope, even in difficult times. Kanye then starts rapping about defeating the devil and praising God through life. The use of “graveyard” in the chorus represents the darkness and negativity we sometimes face in life, and praising God is the way to overcome it.


The second half of the song features Kanye’s rapping about his personal experiences, including his past struggles with mental health and previous representation in the media. However, the chorus remains the same, emphasizing the power of worship and praising God in the face of adversity. The closing lyrics speak about doing things for one’s self and praying for others who are hurting. The song ultimately reflects Kanye’s personal journey and faith, while also encouraging others to keep praise and worship at the forefront of their lives, even through difficult times.

@@mr.krishna1879 That bombastic sh*t about loving evil mustache man was to make a point.

Yee is speaking in tongues. Those who know, know.
He made me question my own judgment, I thought I was a
"good enough" christian but in reality I was not following Christ. Yee is fighting the culture unlike the milk toast "christian" conservatives that only complain and cry while they conserve nothing.

It's hilarious how "evil" the left think the right is when 90% of them are Apathetic Do Nothing Republicans that agree with them on the most important issues.

There's no denying it, this is a uniparty, a uniparty which policy's are exclusively anti-prosperity.
