August Alsina: Dreamy but Dangerous

Now we all know new R&B heartthrob, Mr. August Alsina is one we need to look out for. His music is great, he’s not a one hit wonder, and might I add he is goregous! But Mr. Alsina seems to have what some might call a short temper. Since August Alsina has hit the scene he has had two public incidents that have some people questioning him.

There was an alleged “beef” between Alsina and veteran R&B star, Trey Songz.

Alsina appeared on BET’s 106 & Park to promote his new album. Evidently before the interview Alsina told hosts he didn’t want to talk about the alleged beef. But 106 host, Keisha Chantè, asked anyway which seemed to piss him off. Alsina responded, “So you’re just gonna go against the grain? I just told y’all not to ask me that shit when I got up in here,” I’m sure after that it was pretty clear that he meant what he said.

Then, recently, while performing at a show in Little Rock, Arkansas a fan steals his hat while he was crowd surfing. Alsina stops the show and curses at the crowd to give him his hat back.

Apparently the hat was given to Alsina by a family member who had passed away. Which is completely understandable, the hat had sentimental value, but his approach was a little harsh. He never did get his hat back, and the show ended there.

I wish the best for August Alsina in his career! Keep the good music coming!
