A few months ago, August Alsina revealed he and Trey Songz weren’t on speaking terms, and that was that. As he promoted his album Testimony, we didn’t hear much about the beef, however, the subject was obviously very touchy for him, as he shot down bringing it up during an interview on 106&Park.
Here's the awkward 106&Park moment:
After telling the crew backstage to avoid any questions regarding Trey Songz, co-host Keshia Chante asked anyway to August's dismay, Bow Wow's "I can't believe you just did that" face, and the general tension which followed thereafter (did she call him a d*ck @ 1:25?).
But Alsina addressed that situation on Hot 97 recently, taking some responsibility for the situation by blaming himself for even going public with the beef in the first place. “It’s all a part of me growing. I speak from my heart, I got a big f*ckn mouth…I’m the idiot because I said what I said thinking maybe if I say this, these ni**as won’t ask me about this no more,” he explains.
As for the beef, August says it’s squashed: "We don’t have a problem. I just talked to Trey. I think I was in Miami with Jeezy and he got on the line with Jeezy and I holla’d at him."
He speaks on all of those issues, as well as making history as the first singer ever to grace XXL Magazine's freshman cover for their June/July issue.
“When I went to XXL, they was saying the same thing. ‘Nah. You’re not a rapper. This is Hip-Hop dominated.’ Honestly, I don’t know what’s going on in the world of music because you got singers that’s rapping and rappers that’s singing.”
