August Alsina has issued an apology for blasting his label via Twitter last night.
The New Orleans rap singer took to Instagram this morning apologizing for his comments, particularly the “f*ck you” part, and says he still respects Def Jam.
“My ‘F*ck you’ tweet came from a place of frustration of course but also a place of love,” he explained in a text picture. “I have a great deal of respect for my Def-Jam family, but I hate the disappointment my album leaking has caused my fans.” He also was sorry for being negative in the recent series of tweets.
“I hate to come off negatively in any way possible and I may not handle every situation the way you may see fit,” he wrote. “There’s so much passion, blood, sweat, & tears that I pour into everything that I do and in NO way do I take the position God has put me in for Granted.”
August Alsina is on the heels of releasing his sophomore album, This Thing Called Life, however, not apparently at his discretion, the album was made available for stream via his Vevo account a day prior to its official drop. He decided to let loose on Def Jam, who he claims let the project slip out to the public early.
“I didn't do this. My shitty ass label did it. They're just fucking Shitty! Smh,” he tweeted. “FUCKKKKKKKKK YOU @DefJamRecords.”
