August Alsina has some choice words for his record label for putting up the album stream of "This Thing Called Life."
It appears August Alsina isn’t too happy with his record label at the moment. On the eve of his sophomore album, This Thing Called Life, Def Jam decided to leak the album a day early on August’s Vevo Channel, but he wasn’t with that idea at all.
Taking to twitter moments following the album stream, August decided to call out Def Jam for the leak, tweeting “I didn't do this. My shitty ass label did it. They're just fucking Shitty! Smh”
Thinking he may cool down after a couple hours, he sure didn’t. Two hours after the original tweet, the New Orleans crooner had some more choice words for Def Jam, tweeting out “FUCKKKKKK YOU @DefJamRecords” in all caps.
This backlash is the second time this week that Def Jam has been ridiculed by its artists. Earlier this week, 50 Cent came to the aid of Jeremih and dogged Def Jam for what they did to the Chicago singer’s roll out campaign. Sounds like things are getting a little shaky over at Def Jam.
Peep August tweets below, and if you haven’t already, be sure to give his sophomore album a stream right here on HNHH.
