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.”
