Bishop Jakes’ legal team will be taking action against rapper Jeezy for featuring his sermon in a rap song titled “Holy Ghost (Remix)” without authorization. In the song, Jeezy sings about his pre-rapper occupation as a drug dealer, and the materialism and sexual experiences that come with their startdom.
However, the intro of the song is an excerpt from Bishop TD Jakes’ sermon “Don’t Let The Chatter Stop You”
Touch somebody and say ‘I’m still on fire.
I’m under attack, but I’m still on fire.
I’ve got some chatter, but I’m still on fire.
I’ve got some threats, but I’m still on fire.
I’ve got some liabilities, but I’m still on fire.
It’s not amazing that I’m on fire.
I’ve been to hell and back, but I’m still on fire.
TD Jakes Ministeries released a statement in response to his via her official Facebook page on Monday, September 22 with a notice to take legal action.
