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

    B. Slade Conversations

    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
