The young homie August Alsina has been garnering a steady buzz since the release of his first mixtape “Untitled,” which we premiered Here. The 19-year old New Orleans native recently spoke with AllHipHop.com about his early upbringing in the NO, dealings in the streets, the loss of his older brother, finding his voice, being compared to Trey Songz and being labeled the new R&B thug.
This was a great interview with the emerging singer/songwriter, whom we are heavily co-signing. Check out the audio from their convo now, and stay tuned for much more from August Alsina!

Trey Songz braved the “The Breakfast Club” promoting his new single “Heart Attack.” The R&B lothario touched on various topics including his fifth album, the Trayvon Martin case, social media, and if sex truly ain’t better than love, as his single implies.
Despite the temptation of crossover success, Trey will always remain rooted in R&B. “I’m gonna always be an R&B singer no matter how many crossover records I have in the Hot 100,” he said. “It’s important for me to keep my music urban and what I started it to be ’cause it’s not cool to be an R&B singer no more. That’s not the thing to do if you want a hit.”
He’s recorded about 30 songs for his upcoming album Chapter V including a collaboration with T.I. called “Two Reasons,” which the hosts referred to as “Bitches and Drinks.”
The conversation turned serious when discussing the Trayvon Martin tragedy and Trey’s own experience with racism. “It’s a month later and justice still hasn’t been served,” he said. “It’s truly outlandish that this is going down.”
