Marvin Sapp weighed in on JAY-Z‘s critically acclaimed 13th studio album, 4:44 going platinum in five days with, at the time, no physical copies for sale.

The five-time Grammy nominated singer and Pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the success of the 47-year-old rapper’s latest project.

In his response, he says that gospel music is on “life support” and that although JAY-Z admitted to his infidelity, “not one supporter questions his lifestyle, beliefs or commitment to his wife”, thus spawning a platinum selling album.

Hmm. He does have a valid point.

Sapp’s episode of TV One’s Unsung airs Sunday July 16 at 9/8p. The 22-time Stellar award winner is reportedly gearing up for the release of his 12th studio album and his newest single, Close, can be heard on radio stations everywhere. Check out the official lyric video below.

TELL US: Does he make a good point? Are believers more judgmental than others?
