August Alsina Apologizes For Lashing Out At Def Jam

Industry Rule #4080: Record company people are shady.

August Alsina lashed out at Def Jam on Wednesday night after a careless mistake resulted in his album, This Thing Called Life, being leaked online two days ahead of its scheduled release.

In case you missed it:

After digesting the entire situation, August returned to social media with an open letter to his fans explaining what fueled his anger (which is pretty self-explanatory, if you ask me).

The 23-year-old singer wrote, “I hate to come off negatively in any way possible and I may not handle every situation the way you may see fit.” He continued, “There’s so much passion, blood, sweat, and tears that I pour into everything that I do and in NO way do I take the position God has put time in for granted.”
