A little-noticed back-and-forth recently unfolded between Florida rapper Plies and well-known gospel singer Kirk Franklin, with Plies releasing an Instagram video proclaiming that he will go to church with Franklin if the Christian singer agrees to visit a strip club with him.
"Y'all tell Kirk Franklin I say I wanna take him to King Of Diamonds with me. He can go in, he ain't even gotta get no dancers, he can go in there and turn right around ... and go take him a little holy bath and he gonna be back holy," Plies said in a video posted to his Instagram page. "Kirk, listen, you go to King Of Diamonds with me and I come to church with you, an even swap."
Watch his challenge below:
It didn't take long for the gospel singer to respond to Plies.
"Y'all tell @plies that the album is called 'Losing My Religion' not 'Lost My Religion,'" Franklin wrote, referencing his new Christian album titled, "Losing My Religion" that released earlier this month.
The singer then proceeded to offer up an amended challenge.
"Next time I'm in Miami, you gotta come to a Baptist church with me, and sit through a three-hour church service with tambourines and a church cookout," Franklin said. "And then, I may walk by the club. I may walk on the parking lot and just walk on the curb of the club."

Y'all tell @plies that the album is called "Losing My Religion" not "Lost My Religion" #SeeYouInChurch!

It's unclear if Plies took Franklin up on his latter deal, but if you're wondering why the two got into a back-and-forth, Vibe hinted to past jokes about how the two men apparently resemble one another.
