A recent appearance on BET’s 106 & Park has August Alsina in the midst of media controversy that has fans and music lovers alike divided. The singer openly spoke on the matter while promoting his debut album, Testimony, on Sway In The Morning.
If you aren’t aware, Alsina has some words for 106 & Park host Keshia Chanté, who inquired about his issues with Trey Songz after he specifically requested not to be asked that question. The Def Jam artist expressed feelings of being played and feeling like his actions were justified.
“I was played, man,” Alsina said. “Here’s the thing. I look like the bad guy right now because of how I been portrayed. Really, people don’t know. First of let me say, I ain’t no b*tch, I ain’t no hoe, I ain’t no p*ssy, I ain’t no pushover. None of the above. So nobody… don’t play with me! Like, lead me to believe something that is not. If you tell me we ain’t gon talk about this when I ask you… You lied right to my face! So don’t blindside me!”
He also had a message for detractors and those who side with Chanté. “And if anybody feel like I disrespected her or whatever, it’s like, ‘Okay, cool! Fuck you, too!’ and that’s what it is.” Well, there you have it folks.
