Def Jam’s August Alsina has the Internet buzzing this week after revealing a distanced relationship he has with fellow crooner Trey Songz.
Although August did not initially get into specifics, he did place blame on Songz for negatively impacting their bond.
“I don’t really f*ck 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 sh*t 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’.” (Rap-Up)
While things may be dicey with Songz, Alsina promised he is on great terms with fellow crooner Chris Brown.
He continued, “Once ni**as go to talkin’ a certain type of way, that sh*t 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.” (Rap-Up)
Last fall, August and Songz’s “I Luv This Sh*t” remix premiered online.
Ditching Trinidad Jame$ for Chris Brown and Trey Songz, Def Jam’s August Alsina now drops off the remix for his hit single, “I Luv This Sh*t.” The now-sensual song is an all-out R&B affair, as the trio of crooners flex their pipes accordingly throughout the reworked, Knucklehead-produced cut.
