Bow Wow, Keshia Chante, and August Alsina

Honestly, I had no idea who August Alsina was until today. So I guess he’s gotten what he wanted.

Attention.

But what he doesn’t realize is that, rudeness only works for the Kanye’s in the world, and some will say he actually has a reason to be rude and self-absorbed.

August, let me be frank with you.

In a world where r&b singers come and go, and have the life span of the sperm that birthed you, you may want to lay off the attitude a bit.

Readers, if you’re also asking yourself, “Who the hell is August Alsina?”, he’s an up-and-coming R&B singer who appeared on 106 & Park on April 15 to promote his new album Testimony. During his appearance, Keshia Chante, a host on the show, asked Alsina about some recent Trey Songz controversy.

“Is there any chance that two talented brothers will bury the hatchet?” August did not seem overly pleased by the question, and responded with, “So, you just gon’ against the grain and go against everything that I just–…. I just told y’all not to ask me that s*** when I got up here.”

So what’s the R&B beef between Trey Songz and Alsina? Pretty hilarious if you ask me.

And what’s the beef between Alsina and Trey? They were getting along well in 2013 when Alsina released his song “I Luv This S***” featuring Trey (and Chris Brown), but Alsina told Rap Up in March 2014 that the relationship went south.

“I don’t really f*** with Trey right now. We don’t get along right now. We ain’t on the same page. He did some other s*** and we just don’t rock. Like I tell people all the time, show me that you’re this person on day one… You should always be that person. We were supposed to have a show together and it just went left ’cause I can’t deal with n***s’ egos and attitudes ’cause I’m just a real n**** comin’ through and I’m rockin’.”

In laymen’s terms, it looks like these two high-pitched voiced R&B singers had a playground fight over something.

How the hell do you snap on a host, who’s trying to give you shine? That Trey Songz controversy will probably be the highlight of your career.

And I’m sure BET won’t have you step foot on their stage again.

  • I saw this when it happened…the first time i have seen 106 & Park for years and I see this crap. I’m in production too, and while I agree she shouldn’t have asked the question, even if she did he could have handled it better. He could have laughed it off and said “Next Question” just as easily as he cussed at her, and would have done less damage to himself and his minuscule career. Handle the question she asked with the producers during the break, or have your management do it. There are way better solutions than pretending to be hard on national tv.

    I wouldn’t necessarily say his career won’t last because he cussed at somebody on 106 and Park. I mean, he could’ve answered differently but he clearly stated that he asked them not to bring it up. He was there to promote his album, which is good. He’s still new to the media so he has some work to do as far as being in front of the camera. But I’m not going to assume his career won’t last because of this incident.

  • Rosie Perez

    She didn’t deserve to be cursed at, but I do understand why his feathers got ruffled considering he told her off the air that he wasn’t going to talk about that. She was also rude for bringing it up.

  • Hi August Alsina, I wanta give you my number and I really really really much give a text on Tango bye baby.:-)
