Looks like August Alsina is one upset singer. Over the weekend, we learned that the R&B slammed his record label, Def Jam after they allegedly leaked his album earlier than expected.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, Alsina’s second album titled: This Thing Called Life, was leaked a day early on August’s Vevo Channel, but not by the singer.
Following the leak, Alsina took to social media to vent about his record label. The 22-year-old tweeted: “I didn’t do this. My sh*tty a** label did it. They’re just f*cking Sh*tty! Smh”
That wasn’t the only words coming out of the New Orleans native’s mouth. He also tweeted: “F*CKKKKKK YOU @DefJamRecords.”
Soon after his viral rants, Alsina wrote a huge statement that read:
“Dear Nation, I know in the past my actions may have shown me to be seemingly ignorant because of my very BIG mouth. I hate to come off negatively in any way possible and I may not handle every situation the way you may see fit,” the younger singer said.
He also added that he worked hard on his talent and claimed that God had blessed him. He said that his rants earlier came from “frustration, and a place of love.”
Alsina said: “The love I speak of is the up all day & night, the endless studio sessions, interview after interview, plane ride after plane ride, show after show kind of love.”
He revealed that he does music for his supportive fans. Alsina said no one could imagine how much work he put into his album for the presentation to be leaked because of mistakes. He said that he understood mistakes are made sometimes, but it’s not easy to go along with them and accept it. Alsina claimed that he had respect for his label but was upset that the leak messed up his relationship with his fans.
