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.

Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation
Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!
Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.
The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.
Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
