(AllHipHop News) Last month, Def Jam artist August Alsina berated 106 & Park host Keisha Chante after she asked him about his rumored beef with Trey Songz. In a recent interview, August explains why he reacted the way he did, how he was an idiot for his initial Trey Songz comments and more.
During his interview on Hot 97’s The Morning Show, Alsina explained why he had such a strong reaction to the host’s seemingly tame question:
If you put me in a position…that’s how I felt. I went back to BET yesterday and that’s exactly what I said. [Keisha] was like, ‘I didn’t mean to disrespect you’ and I was like, ‘Well it wasn’t my intention to disrespect you.’ Before this conversation, I felt how I felt and I spoke on how I felt and I spoke don’t take back nothing that I said.
During an interview with RAP-UP this past March, Alsina remarked that he was not cool with Trey Songz after the two were supposed to do a show together that was cancelled. At the time Alsina attributed his feud with Songz to him not being able to “deal with ni**as’ egos and attitudes ’cause I’m just a real ni**a.” However, less than two months later, Alsina regrets the comments:
I’m the idiot, because it’s like I said what I said thinking ‘maybe if I say this, these n*ggas won’t ask me about this no more’. But, in return it’s like ‘oh, everybody beefing.’ I never said that. With these interviews, they put up what they want to put up and not put up everything I said.
