Rap-Up TV: August Alsina Reveals Beef with Trey Songz

August Alsina is keeping it real. Known for his gritty singles “Make It Home” and “Ghetto,” the New Orleans crooner is not sugar coating anything, including his relationships in the industry.

While promoting his debut Testimony, due April 15, he revealed his beef with Trey Songz. The R&B singers, who collaborated on the remix to August’s hit “I Luv This Sh*t,” recently had a falling out.

“I don’t really fuck with Trey right now. We don’t get along right now,” he exclusively told Rap-Up TV. “We ain’t on the same page. He did some other shit and we just don’t rock.”

He explained what led to the demise of their friendship. “Like I tell people all the time, show me that you’re this person on day one… You should always be that person,” said August. “We were supposed to have a show together and it just went left ’cause I can’t deal with ni**as’ egos and attitudes ’cause I’m just a real ni**a comin’ through and I’m rockin’.”

He continued, “Once ni**as go to talkin’ a certain type of way, that shit ain’t gon’ fly with me and that’s all that was and I just had to not do the show ’cause I can’t stand on side of a ni**a if I really got something that I feel in my heart. It just ain’t gon’ work, so I just had to dip and we didn’t do it, but it is what it is.”

While he and Trey may have their differences, he still rocks with Chris Brown. “As far as Chris, that my ni**a. That’s love. I spoke to him a while ago, he goin’ through what he goin’ through, his situation, and I just always try to uplift him with positivity and love.”

    @Haha, maybe two or three yrs ago I would agree but nicki is far from being inspired by lil Kim they don’t rap the same way only thing that was similar was the wigs and even then Kim ain’t da first to wear a colorful wig lol

    @Rob, @Rob, im still trying to find out how he’s like Trey Songz… Trey is a Lover Boy who grew up shy in his half way suburban city… and ppl stated telling him “filling his head” he could sing and then pursued it after.. he sings about fucking, females, and alcohol… some how I dnt believe that’s how he grew up. ..

    August on the other hand sings about street shit.. over coming that shit.. motivation about pushing forward as well as females and L.. but its coming from somewhere… both fathers on crack hurricane katrina getting kick out his brother getting murdered doing the same shit he was doing… dropping out of high school… That’s just a sample and your comparing…

    wait let me guess… cuz he sings and he’s fine??? He’s imitating? Oh I guess beyonce is trying to be Whitney Houston… Talking about judging a book… smh.. Do your learning before u have an opinion… There’s enough asses letting out point less air

    @Rob, Stfu you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. He ain’t trying to be like or imitate anyone. August got his own sound you must be confused. They come from two different places and sing about two different things. You obviously know shit about his music or any music in general. Take your to a Trey Songz fan page with that shit.

    @Rob, come on bruh you sound crazy as shit dawg. Me being a singer myself and actually dont just off of how “long” someone has been in tha game, August Alsina sings way better than Trey songz. AUGUST bringin a soul/ gangsta music style to tha game and it sounds hella good. That nigga Trey songz cant sing to me lol. Tbh he was never a singer. He didnt want to be until said he “sounded good” . But long story short August from tha South (jus like me), he sings (just like me), and he doin good in tha game. August got it. Hands down

    [Reply]

    @Mal Reply:

    @Jsmuve, Trey can’t sing? Now you sound crazy. And they are similar in style especially from when Trey first came out (which a lot of people didn’t follow him then). Trey music has changed (as it should) over the years and I’m sure the longer Alsina is in the game his music and sound will change too. Both are nice artist but Trey is definitely better. All Alsina songs sound similar from his mixtapes to his album. He definitely has a lot to learn.

    This isn’t the first time I’ve heard stuf like this about Trey. He visited ECU (in NC) a while ago, and a lot of the fans left the meet and greet saying he had a nasty attitude and was heard calling some of the ladies “bxtches”. It’s to be expected that a little VA dude gets his head pumped by million of people for his IMO average looks, and now has a ego that he’s untouchable. I just feel like Alsina would beat the breaks off him.

    [Reply]

  9. Colee

    I wanted them to tour together this summer with Chris…I love them all but Trey too damn old to be acting like a child. And August probably shouldn’t have done this interview cause that show he was talking about my cousin went there for August and he didn’t show up like that don’t fuck up Trey that fucks with ya fans. They grown ass men and they should be able to handle it as such.

  10. BitchDontKillMyVibe

    August seems to be a really blunt guy who won’t put up with anyone’s shits. But young man… do you even know how many egocentric people will you meet in this industry? He can’t go around having beefs with everyone…
    He’s just too young and inexperienced

    [Reply]

  11. Jay

    I don’t think it’s no beef. I think Kevin Liles came up with this beef stuff to squash those gay rumors about Trey, him. Trey was getting to close to August posting pics of them two together for days on out. Trey probably wanted dude for his boyfriend, dude wasn’t having any of it. I do respect his bluntness he didn’t hide from it most say no beef when there is one.

    First, Trey has NOT fell off. Ok… second, I’m a huge fan of Trey, maybe because I’m from Virginia as well, third,I really not into August music, judge me all you want, his music is NOT my type. Fourth, collaboration artist grow apart. So, their friendship has went south, do you think it’s bothering Trey? Nope!

    Trey, has no talent,he is a gimmick to us young ladies but as I have grown, I f*ck with MARIO, he is on that real and sing like no other with music of substance. August is speaking his truth, I like him, He is a real brother. Trey has fallen off, that is why He called August to get on the remix of his hot ass song. August was not looking for Trey, Trey called him. Trey rub a lot of people the wrong way.

    [Reply]

  16. Sincere

    I heard the interview on the radio, an I think its funny. But real talk, August clarified why he didn’t do the show for his fans, respect. Bet it don’t hurt his career, cuz They dont sell out shows. For real, for real he wack. He just have faithful fans from his 4 or 5 past hits.

    [Reply]

  17. Dxorr

    Lmfao don’t nobody care about that original version “I Luv This Shit” Trey and Chris made that song a hit. Trey being rude to fans I really don’t believe that. He don’t allow his staff to talk to his fans any kind of way so I don’t believe that at all. Trey don’t need to hop on anybody track or hop on his. It’s very hard for me to believe August was disrespected. Trey is known for helping new talent. August was suppose to be a guest at Trey show…that’s about 15 mins get your 3 or 4 songs in. Start from the bottom make your way to the top August. Trey been there done that and getting money on and off the stage. And Trey not about to talking bout this beef in a interview either life goes on.

  26. Kity

    August have no room to talk bad about Trey. I went to Worthing H.S. with August he was extremely full of himself he got pissed off at me in class because I ignored his ass. Yes, a lot of girls liked him but I didn’t, to be honest he seemed kinda gay. He look straight now that he have those tatoos but he wasn’t tatted back then and believe me, he ain’t hard. I didn’t even know he was known until last month.

I’ll be meeting august one of these days..I think they will get over what ever it is that they are going through..and will eventually be kool again..if not it still don’t take from their talent.. I bet trey won’t even respond. It’s all irrelevant.

And this rapper beef stuff has been dead for a while we don’t need this shit again…be professional not an unminded nigga. Be somebody and be respectful because you are lucky to make it. just saying

    But first off never he never tried to act like trey though treys really the one that’s going hard and changing his swag August walked in with his mentality and he’s not jacking no one else style nor he gotta copy cause he can really song and every song is a smash .

    [Reply]

    @Mal Reply:

    @Sexy dice, When has Trey changed his swag???…Trey is the same dude he’s always been. I’ve followed the guys since he came into the game. When he posted videos on youtube singing pieces of his upcoming songs. When he would rap and freestyle for fun. I doubt you was listening to his music when he first hopped in the game way back in 05.

    [Reply]

  38. Rae

    August full of shit. Trey is respectful to all his fans. Trey is always doing something special for his fans and acknowledge them for riding with him . August is young and has some maturity to do. Y’all want to keep it “REAL” I luv this shit was straight but them remix is better than them original version. Trey music isn’t about just fucking and drinking. If you don’t listen to Trey music don’t make shit up you don’t know nothing of. NO ONE in the industry has complained about working with Trey Songz period. And Them way August acted on 106&park towards Keisha shows how disrespectful he is speaking to a woman like a bitch ass nigga on national television real shit. August is just now really being known wish him them best. Hope he get it right.

    [Reply]

  39. Jason

    But can we address the fact that August has and still in no way nor fashion exhibits any Trey characteristics..trust August has no interest in being a tranny chasing, yodeling goat sounding ass nigga.. Trey has done well for himself and has hits but he aint no trendsetter by no means. August and Trey sing about two different walks of life. And if you think they talk about similar stories, your trying to feed your self a facade that trey is putting on that nobody believes nor see’s…showing how pathetic and thirsty yall are to make a reality for Trey Songz that is non existent

    [Reply]

  40. @Mal

    People kill me thinking Trey is weak or soft, dude from the hood just like Alsina. I seen somebody said August was inspired by rappers, well guess what so was Trey. Biggie, Jay and R.Kelly was the people he looked up too as a youngster. Another thing people don’t know about Trey. He was instructed to come into the game as a singer he actually wanted to do the rap thing but the label knew he would have more success as a singer. So was told to sing first then do what he wants after he has the freedom to do so and that’s exactly what he did. The people who be on here talking dumb be the ones who don’t listen to anything but the radio. Also seen someone say Trey was acting like a bitch and was too old for beefing with August. Last time I checked August the one running off at the mouth and telling every interviewer and tweeting about it. Trey hasn’t said anything, looks like Alsina is the immature one.
