Kanye West has released the video for his new track “Follow God” which, rather fittingly, features his father. As well as starring in the video, his dad also has some lines at the beginning of the song.
“What does it really mean to follow God?” he begins. “Like as I stand here today, I’m reminded of the first time my children ever got an opportunity to be in snow. And when we walked outside in the snow, they were very fearful in terms of the steps that they would take. And what I did was I walked in front of them, and I took steps, and I said to them ‘Instead of creating your own footprints, walk in the footprints that I already made’.
West ends the video with text reading: “My dad came to visit me at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming. He talked about his love for fishing, and he would like to come here in the summers. It took me 42 years to realise that my dad was my best friend.”
