For the past year we have had our eye on a young burgeoning singer named August Alsina. Last October, we introduced you to the 19-year old with the release of his “Untitled” covers EP, and since then he has been busy with frequent leaks of new material, a digital release of his “Party & Bullshit” maxi-single, and a steady dose of viral videos. The New Orleans native has recently drawn comparisons to Trey Songz by AllHipHop.com, who proclaimed him “R&B’s New Thug.”
Now, we are proud to bring you the world premiere of August Alsina’s debut mixtape, the DJ Scream assisted, “The Product.” Hoping to carve out his own path to musical success, the singer/songwriter has chosen to release the project today Sunday, April 15th, in honor of the birthday of his late brother, who was gunned down in New Orleans in 2010. A fitting dedication to the brother who inspired him to leave the street life behind and make music his full time hustle.
We highly co-sign August as one of the break-out R&B stars of 2012. So, follow the jump right now to Stream and Download “The Product”!

Keri Hilson got up close and personal in a recent, intimate interview with Fuse. The eery convo covered such random topics as being fired from her job at a restaurant, the last lie she told, the body part she’s most proud of, and the worst breakup she’s ever had, which happens to be the inspiration for her upcoming third album.
“That’s why it’s midtempo,” explains Keri of the follow-up to 2010’s No Boys Allowed. “That’s why it’s emotional and that’s why it will probably be some of my best work yet.”
She also shared her least favorite dreams, which all involve very descriptive end of the world moments. “I have these recurring dreams about the end of the world and they’re very, very vivid and very realistic,” she said. “There’s always the sky going black and you’re watching it happen. Another dream it was like a flood. Another dream is there were so many people killing people in the streets, women and children included. … Another time it was UFOs and they were fighting above us and we just knew that this means it’s over.”
Hilson also opened up about conquering her biggest fear of being lonely, and how she learnt to treat herself better. “I was afraid of being lonely for a long time and I had to just grow comfortable with myself,” she explains. “If no one’s gonna treat me good then I’ll do it myself. I love me.”
