Gospel recording artist Kirk Franklin took to his Instagram account early Sunday morning to address concerns about his collaboration with rapper Kanye West.
Shortly after a performance of “Ultralight Beam” on the “Saturday Night Live” stage that featured Kelly Price, Anthony Evans, Jr., Farnsworth Bentley, Chance the Rapper, Kanye West, and others, Kirk Franklin notified his Twitter followers to head to his Instagram account for a comment on his relationship with West.
Franklin’s comments come weeks after a photo was posted online of the gospel artist with West and other rappers in a studio.
“Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with,” Franklin wrote online after his “SNL” performance. “No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on.”
Franklin went on to address the controversy and criticism leveled his way after his collaboration with West became public news.
