August Alsina is celebrating the release of new album ‘This Thing Called Life’ today, but is still in the midst of a media storm following his less than tactful words for label Def Jam.
According to the crooner, an error saw the entire LP serviced to VEVO two days ahead of its release. Taking to Twitter upon learning of the occurrence via fans, the New Orleans native typed verbatim “f*ck you Def Jam.”
During a promotional visit to The Breakfast Club today, Alsina insisted that he “definitely meant them words” and elaborated on his frustration.
If sticking with the label is in his longterm plans, we still don’t feel he’s going about the whole episode the right way.
But, whatever the case, check out the interview after the jump…
‘This Thing Called Life’ is out now.
