August Alsina created a wave of controversy when he dropped line about his “entanglement” with Jada Pinkett Smith. He kept Jada’s name out of his mouth, but he still dropped a big clue in his lyrics.

After dropping hints on their romantic relationship in his 2020 track “Entanglements,” the R&B crooner released another new song called “Shake The World” on Tuesday in which he discusses the backlash he received after their affair was made public.

Alsina raps on his new track, “I heard I was canceled/Well, let’s speak on that/Red dot on my back, I became a target/And I’m flawed but flawless, that’s what makes me August.” However, after he released the song he started attracted criticism from fans who were not down to hear lyrics about his affair with Jada.

One fan criticized Alsina for coming off as a “victim” and putting other people’s business out in the open. The fan wrote, “Boy that new song [trash],” before adding, “This is a bad look. You’re not a victim in this. You made a DECISION to sleep with another man’s WIFE and now that it’s time to reap you wanna put these people’s business out there instead of admitting that wasn’t P and owning your #WillSmith.”

The rapper responded with, “ifeel for you and your ancestors brother. Cus u ain’t nevaaaaa had to lie this hard. U know that sh*t hard boy!” Alsina added, “Sh*t put u in a hypnosis soon as it drop! Cus Got Dammit ‘I shake the wurrrrrrrrl.’” The same fan went on to clarify he’s a longtime fan of August Alsina’s music, but not his commentary around Jada Pinkett-Smith. The fan wrote in a response,

“My point is this, You’re actually talented. All of that [sh*t] that you’ve been through in your childhood and life is what attracted a lot of us to your music. You don’t NEED to be doing THIS. All you need to do is drop a hot album and K.I.M. IJS.”

Alsina again responded to the fan by saying, “I’m not a child anymore! & No need to remind me of being talented, God gifted me that! I’m STiLL talking about MY life in my music,” He added, “Yal got a problem! BE MAD! Black twitter is the new age slave owners! But Yal don’t own me! & u go stay mad about it.” Meanwhile, the shaderoom documented the whole exchange on their page. Check it out below.
