August Alsina isn’t too pleased with his label, Def Jam, and wants to be free from its shackles. The 25-year-old R&B singer called out the label on Monday (November 13) for allegedly holding his forthcoming album (and himself) hostage.

“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,” he tweeted in response to a fan asking about the status of his LP. “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.”

This isn’t the first time he’s took to Twitter to air out frustrations against Def Jam.

August Alsina’s sophomore album, This Thing Called Life, was due out in stores on Dec. 11, 2015.

The album, in its entirety, ended up online the night before on December 10th — and according to August it’s all his label Def jam’s fault.

He took to Twitter to pop off about the situation.
