PREACHING BEHIND BARS

Kanye's presence was a surprise for almost everyone, except a few members of the staff who helped organize the visit. The inmates were all very excited to see the rapper.

In a video currently being shared online, the 42-year-old can be seen performing just a couple of feet away from hundreds of inmates, with two red lines made out of tape marking out the safety distance.

Kanye did two separates shows - one for male inmates and for females - but both groups seemed to feel touched by the rapper's words and some were spotted praying.

While some took a knee, praying in silence, others raised their hands and praised God with tears in their eyes, all under the supervision of several Harris County Jail officers.

POINTING HIS FINGER AT SOCIAL MEDIA

For the past few months, the 42-year-old rapper has completely changed his outlook on life and claimed that he was determined to walk a path closer to God.

Recently, Kanye even criticized social media and the way it has allowed people to post and share provocative images, a trend that he considers to be fueling sex addiction.

KANYE COMPARED MEN'S DUFFERING TO JESUS'

A self-confessed sex addict, Kanye said that the pictures that he once had to pay for are now available online and free of charge, which contributes to the suffering of men:

"I suffer - and I appreciate the suffering because we can just feel a little bit of what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media makes me suffer."

Kanye's idea of suffering, however, clashes with his marriage, considering that Kim is one of the most followed celebrities on Instagram and often shares pictures of herself wearing very sexy outfits.
