Trey Songz didn’t go against the grain when the topic of August Alsina came up in a recent interview with Capital Xtra. Rewind to August’s visit to BET’s 106 & Park last month when he was asked about his current standing with Trigga and it was quite the opposite. However, Songz insists all is well.
“August is like a little brother to me. I took him in early on in his career and we had a discrepancy and he didn’t know how to deal with that. He hasn’t been in a situation where he has to answer the same question a million times. It’s frustrating so I believe he spoke and said some things he didn’t really mean out of pressure, ’cause I really care about him. He got a lot going on in his life outside of music and I know that about him so I didn’t feel the need to speak out against him. That don’t do nothin’ for me, especially when I don’t want to see nobody do bad, if a new artist come in and I think they talented. I wouldn’t have jumped on his song… picture him here and there with me … I like the dude so everything he said about me is whatever. I wanna see him do good and I get nothing from talking down on people.”
