August Alsina dropped by Sway In The Morning today to promote his album Testimony and to discuss some things, including the now famous 106 & Park incident that left the New Orleans singer a #RNS legend.
According to August, he felt like he was played by the folks at BET after telling them that he didn’t want to speak about his beef with Trey Songz. The singer likened the awkward segment to a gunfight gone horribly wrong.
“I was played, man. Here’s the thing. I look like the bad guy right now because of how I been portrayed. Really, people don’t know. First of let me say, I ain’t no bitch, I ain’t no hoe, I ain’t no p*ssy, I ain’t no pushover. None of the above. So nobody… don’t play with me! Like, lead me to believe something that is not. If you tell me we ain’t gon talk about this when I ask you… You lied right to my face! So don’t blindside me!
“So it’s like, all of us we going to war around this muthafucka…with each other. We all on the same squad and then as soon as we get out there bustin’ at niggas, ya’ll just start shooting at me, “boom, boom!” So you got to prepared for me to bust back at you if you don’t kill me. And that’s what it is! So I was played.”
August also remained unapologetic with the way it all went down, offering a “f*ck you” to anyone who felt he disrespected the show’s host.
“Me and Stephen Hill..shout out to Stephen Hill over at BET. We had a real conversation and it’s love, but I don’t like the way I was portrayed because I’m not a bad nigga and I what was exhausting (?) is for me to try to show you that I’m a good guy when I know who I am. It’s too exhausting, man. But I was played. And if anybody feel like I disrespected her or whatever, it’s like, “Okay, cool! Fuck you, too!” and that’s what it is.”
