A Church Clapback? B. Slade Responds to Critics with Conversation

Just a few days ago, The Dream Team honored Kurt Carr and Lynette Hawkins-Stephens for their contributions to gospel music. The evenings musical tribute was held at the famed Love Center Ministries (Oakland, CA), and drew artist and peers from around the country to join in the celebration. B. Slade (formerly known as Tonex) is no stranger to the Bay Area, and does not hesitate to show up and support whenever called.

The comments took off like wild-fire as his tribute selection of “There’s A War Going On” for Lynette Hawkins-Stephens began streaming online. The comments picked apart everything from attire, movement on stage, his hat, and even his presence.

He later returned to Love Center the following morning for Sunday service, admitting it was the first time he’s been in Sunday Morning Worship in 7 years.

 

While most had moved on, the comments continued to grow.

It appears B. Slade is ready for dialogue, and has dropped his “diss track” response, “Conversation”. Most gospel/church response is filled with innuendo, long rants, sarcastic memes – and now clap backs. Listen below:

 

Lyrics

What happened in Oakland ?
yeah I heard that Tonex was in
I mean what ever his name…..B.Slade
whatever was at LOVE CENTER
and did you, did you see what he had on ?
I mean did you see what he had on ?
I mean like, how do you even minister
wearing something like that ?
Y’all haters corny with that
“He needs deliverance”
check out your choir stand
They all need deliverance (wild in’)
Attack my character
But Half of y’all Closeted
The last convention I attended was empty nest
my daddy was a pastor
but now he’s in a casket
my momma dead but y’all don’t care
you niggaz need to stop it
now gospel sucks
because ensembles snatched the choir robes
but if I dress prince & michael I’m a homo
been acting shady since that interview I did with Lexi
I heard B.SLADE was a fag…..FAG
“I became a civilian after so much had happened to me
and uh I just had to step away from everything….. So this is my
first Sunday Morning Service in 7 years.”
I’m still here and I’m on it
and on Facebook they talkin
you sayin that you hate it but
my DMs say you still want it
I still pray for my haters
see you later alligator
I’m anointed with my shoulder pads
and my snatched waist and y’all hate it
I threw my hat off
and they caught it
don’t act new
I’ve been on it
I’m B.Slade all day
ok ok
I think it’s time we had a real conversation
I think it’s time we had a real conversation
Switched up your story since the last convocation
Look in the mirror have a self confrontation
alto’s sleeping with the drummer
now she back at the altar
alto’s sleeping with the bass player
now she back at the altar
Pastors trying to get my number in the lobby right after
you don’t know the price that I paid for my box of AlabastorHeard “Make Me Over” on the radio station
you heard “Make Me Over” on the radio station
I’m the same dude that wrote them tunes
but you discriminating
I snatched them wigs but you ain’t gonna snatch my salvation

I’m still here and I’m on it
and on Facebook they talkin
you say that you hate it but
my DMs say you still want it
I still pray for my haters
see you later alligator
I’m anointed with my shoulder pads
and my snatched waist and y’all hate it
I threw my hat off
and they caught it
don’t act new
I’ve been on it
I’m B.Slade all day
ok ok
I think it’s time we had a real conversation
I think it’s time we had a real conversation
Switched up your story since the last convocation
Look in the mirror have a self confrontation
ok ok
I think it’s time we had a real conversation
I think it’s time we had a real conversation
I must be that dude if I caused all this conversation
always stay gracious, leave revenge to The Savior
