For the past few months burgeoning newcomer August Alsina 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, like his remix to the Kirko Bangz hit “Drank In My Cup”. The New Orleans native has recently drawn comparisons to Trey Songz by AllHipHop.com, who proclaimed him “R&B’s New Thug”.
Now, August is set to drop his debut mixtape, the DJ Scream assisted, “The Product,” hoping to carve out his own path to musical success. The 19-year old singer/songwriter will drop his debut project right here with ThisisRnB on Sunday, April 15th, 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. Take a listen to one of the featured cuts, a remake of Drake and Lil Wayne’s “HYFR” below and stay tuned!!
