“You have to bring who you are and what you are and your spirituality and the things that you believe in have to exceed and go beyond anything that you do,” he continued. “Any work that you do and accolades that you get, you have to know that God is more important and family and love that you have for others. I just put that first and wake up in the morning like this is who I am. That allows me to function more in the music industry and the Hollywood world.”
The rapper gone actor is getting ready to head back to his hometown, Chicago and will be stopping by his childhood church, Trinity United Church.
“When I’m in Chicago and its Sunday, I’m going to Trinity for sure. That’s the church I grew up in since I was 8-years-old. I definitely stop and go to church. If there’s a church in another city that I am aware of I might go there, too. I found a church in L.A. that I like going to on and off, but I need that sometimes,” he shared.
He also disclosed that being with other Christians inspires him.
“It’s the whole communion with people and knowing that we’re all focused on God and doing some good for ourselves. It really becomes a community thing, too, so I love going to church and Trinity in particular,” he said.
