August Alsina maybe soon hear from lawyers representing Def Jam Recordings.

The R&B singer took to Twitter on Monday to blast Def Jam while calling the label trash and saying that they are holding his music hostage and holding him hostage. The root of his grouse with the label seems to be about his long awaited new album which should serves as the followup to his 2015 LP This Thing Called Life. The 25-year-old singer seems highly frustrated with the label and even told his fans that he will instead drop some free music soon.

“I would love to put my album out but DEF JAM is holding it/me hostage because the system is not up & running until next year so they basically dont exist,” August Alsina said. “The label is just TRASH .. I will release free music soon but that has been the hold up. Tell Them to FREE ME & the Album.”

His statement is in response to a fan who asked him, “Ayo [August Alsina] where is the album at bro?! 2017 was a tuff year. I need some of your newest work, I’m goin threw a lot of sh*t.”

Wait – August Alsina lyrics



Lyrics August Alsina – Wait

I’m not telling you to wait on me
I’m not telling you to wait on me, no
I’m not telling you to wait, but I’m hoping that you’ll waaait.

I know this may not be my place
But I got something I should say to you
Sometimes I’m in a different space
But that don’t change the way I feel for you, I do
This may not be the best time
I got a lot going inside my mind
Don’t think for a minute that I’m a fool
Don’t know what I’ll do if I lose you.

You need someone who will be there to hold you
I can’t even say that it’s fair, but I do
Hope you know I’ll always be here if you need me
What I gotta say isn’t easy.

If you gotta leave
Girl, I won’t stop you, so do what you gotta do
I don’t want you to go
But I got a few things in life that I gotta do
I’m not telling you to waaait
I’m not telling you to waaait on me
I’m not telling you to waaait
I’m not telling you to waaait on me
But I’m hoping that you’ll waaait
Waaait, waaait, waaait, waaait, waaait.

I told you when I met you girl that I would need patience
You said that you understood so I thought that you could take it
We have a real good thing
Nothing should come between us
Now you want some things I never promised
You say something missing, I was always honest
Telling you the way that I felt for you
Could be something real that I never knew.

You need someone who will be there to hold you
I can’t even say that it’s fair, but I do
Hope you know I’ll always be here if you need me
What I gotta say isn’t easy.

If you gotta leave
Girl, I won’t stop you, so do what you gotta do
I don’t want you to go
But I got a few things in life that I gotta do
I’m not telling you to waaait
I’m not telling you to waaait on me
I’m not telling you to waaait
I’m not telling you to waaait on me
But I’m hoping that you’ll waaait
But I’m hoping that you’ll waaait
But I’m hoping that you’ll waaait
Waaait, waaait, waaait, waaait, waaaittt.
