The Path MEGAzine catches up with the artist formerly known as TONEX. He is now going by the name B-Slade. B-Slade graciously grants us an interview after stepping off the stage of the Bonnerfied Radio’s anniversary celebration at the 26th annual Stellar Awards.
The performance would be the largest public performance that B-Slade has done since announcing that he was gay on the now cancelled Lexi Show. You could tell that the interview, and the controversy was still fresh on B-Slade’s mind, as he changed the lyrics of his hit song “The Trust Theory” to include not speaking with Kirk Franklin in about 6 years and dropping Lexi’s name later in the next sentence.
When we spoke to the artist formerly known as Tonex, we asked the questions we felt the viewing audience wanted to know. B-Slade, always gracious to answer our questions, let us know whether or not he felt being gay was a sin. I personally don’t agree with B-Slade, but we discover his drive to stay around Gospel music to still be as strong as ever. We found out why he changed his name, and what the name means. We learn more about the people who turned against B-Slade’s new persona, and how he feels about them. We find out whether or not B-Slade will ever record new Gospel music again, and we gain perspective on the audience that B-Slade is trying to reach with his talent.
All this and more can be seen in our exclusive with B-Slade. Tune in Now.
