It’s true, Kirk Franklin and Plies look like they could be related. The two have never met, but a recent Instagram exchange suggests that a powwow may be in their near future.
Soon after Franklin released his 11th album Losing My Religion on Nov. 13, southern rapper Plies reached out with an invitation – sort of like a challenge – for Franklin to show face at the King of Diamonds strip club in Miami.
“He ain’t gotta get no dance or nothing. He can go in there and turn right around, and go take him a little holy bath and he gon’ be back holy,” Plies said in his post. And in return for Franklin’s presence, Plies vowed he’d go to church.
Kirk shocked masses when he actually responded back accepting the offer under slightly different terms and conditions.
“Next time I come to Miami, you gotta come to a Baptist church with me and sit through a three-hour church service with tambourines and a church cookout. And then, I may walk by the club. I may walk on the parking lot and just walk on the curb,” he said.
Kirk made sure to clarify that his new album was called “Losing My Religion,” not “Lost My Religion.”
