Chile, call it what you want, but people including Amanda Seales and Charlamagne Tha God cannot get past the lyrics of Lyfe Jennings’ new song “Slave.” In Lyfe’s new song, he says “I’m gon’ beat it like a slave, so you don’t run away, cut the whips and chains, call me master.”

Amanda posted a video of her reacting to the song’s lyrics and said he was comparing sex to centuries of “the exploitation of black bodies against their will.” Charlamagne then shared Amanda’s video along with the caption, “Some of y’all don’t have any friends. If you did you wouldn’t make mistakes like this record.”

Lyfe responded to Amanda and Charlamagne by claiming they never supported his positive music or the good music he’s made for Black people. “That’s what’s wrong with you Black folks right now, you always want to grasp on to the most negative part and put it, but you can’t support the good,” Lyfe said.

He also apologized to anyone he offended with his new song. SWIPE to see Amanda’s reaction video and Lyfe’s response.
