With songs including the #1 Bilboard R&b/Hip hop hit “I Luv This Sh*t” featuring Trinidad James, “Make It Home” featuring Jeezy and “Ghetto” featuring Rich Homie Quan, August Alsina is setting himself up for an amazing 2014.
The 21-year-old singer stopped by the HipHollywood Loft recently to talk about his upcoming album Testimony which hits stores April 15th, a date that the New Orleans native holds deeply in his heart.
“My oldest brother got killed three years ago, that’s his birthday and I just thought it would be the right move to drop it that day because I’m showing that I wouldn’t be doing this without him,” August told HipHollywood.
August’s brother was murdered in 2010 just after the singers 18th birthday, something that hurt him deeply but also motivated him to succeed.
“A n*gga killin’ my brother was like a wakeup call for me. You gotta do something different you gotta change the the way you livin’, change the way you move cause that could easily be me a n*gga can kill me today or tomorrow so its like ‘what am I going to leave here on this earth?'”
August also opened up exclusively to HipHollywood about a future collaboration with Lil’ Boosie, a fellow Louisiana native who recently returned from jail.
