August Alsina caused a whirlwind of controversy after he told The Breakfast Club co-host Angela Yee Will Smith once gave him his “blessing” to have a sexual relationship with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith during a recent interview.

Although reps for both parties denied the allegation, Alsina has remained steadfast in his conviction. On Friday (July 3), the 27-year-old singer wrote a lengthy Instagram post addressing the situation and maintained he was telling the truth. He explained he simply wanted to free himself from the proverbial chains this alleged “secret” have wrapped him in for years.

“God said, We may grow weary and tired fighting in the fire, but we shall NOT be burned!” he began. “The journey to freedom is a deeply complex, tricky, and turbulent road to tow; yet very necessary. Oppression comes in so many forms these days, beginning w/ physical slavery and bondage to the white man, then passed down generational programming that manifest into mental enslavement.

“Slaves to an idea, slaves to an image, slaves to a code of conduct, slaves to a picture you’ve created in your mind.. even if it contains many falsities.. & anything that differentiates from your ‘idea’ & ‘image’ feels like an attack. & I get it.”

He added, “not only do i get it but I’m also sorry you feel that way, BUT, The only attack here is against the invisible walls of silent societal construct and ‘code’ we place upon each other & upon ourselves hidden behind the desires of others approval & acceptance; another form of slavery & bondage that blocks one’s truest self from showing & spirit flow.’”

God said, We may grow weary and tired fighting in the fire, but we shall NOT be burned! The journey to freedom is a deeply complex, tricky, and turbulent road to tow; yet very necessary. Oppression comes in so many forms these days, beginning w/ physical slavery and bondage to the white man, then passed down generational programming that manifest into mental enslavement. Slaves to an idea, slaves to an image, slaves to a code of conduct, slaves to a picture you’ve created in your mind.. even if it contains many falsities.. & anything that differentiates from your “idea” & “image” feels like an attack. & I get it; not only do i get it but I’m also sorry you feel that way, BUT, The only attack here is against the invisible walls of silent societal construct and “code” we place upon each other & upon ourselves hidden behind the desires of others approval & acceptance; another form of slavery & bondage that blocks one’s truest self from showing & spirit flow. Be blocked and stuck for what? Live silent, pressed down crippled in fear for who ? Adversary is but a gift given to you to flourish. We are surround by so much disharmony in this external world, so it is my forever job to do whatever’s necessary to reach the gift of harmony within myself. Truth & Transparency makes us uncomfortable, yes, but i can’t apologize for that. A tower of truth can never fall, only a tower of lies can do that. My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own. There is no right or wrong here, it simply just IS. & I make room and have acceptance for your thoughts and opinions, regardless if I agree or not, you have that freedom to feel WHATEVER it is u feel because when you’re at TRUE peace, all of the noise and chatter becomes that of a whisper. My heart has no malice or hate toward anyone on this planet. I just simply want the chains off & I’m willing to DIE getting there. The gift of freedom is yours to have, God promises us that, but only if you’re willing. &God is not a man that HE should lie.. & I’m His SON, so neither would I. 🙏🏽 W/ that being said i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance. Wishing Everyone Big Love!

Alsina continued by questioning why he’d remain “blocked” and “stuck” while refusing to stay quiet. He also declined to off an apology for telling his truth.

“A tower of truth can never fall, only a tower of lies can do that,” he wrote. “My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own. There is no right or wrong here, it simply just IS. & I make room and have acceptance for your thoughts and opinions, regardless if I agree or not, you have that freedom to feel WHATEVER it is u feel because when you’re at TRUE peace, all of the noise and chatter becomes that of a whisper.”

He then noted all parties had a “heads up” about the interview.

Pinkett Smith is expected to dive into the entire situation in an upcoming episode of her Facebook show Red Table Talk. She hit up Twitter earlier this week and wrote, “There’s some healing that needs to happen … so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.”

She has yet to announce a date.
