Back with his smooth high tenor, New Orleans’August Alsina is ready to move more musical product with his second project The Product II [Gangsta Grillz] which follows up his 2012 debut tape The Product.
This set plays through as something to get turned up, as each track plays through from banger to banger. Known for covers like “Bandz,” “Ode to My Project Chicks,” and Shoot Or Die (Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie”), the set boasts production from The Dream and Jazze Pha, while Curren$y, Juelz Santana, and Trinidad Jame$ on the previously released “I Luv This Shit.” The banging buzz single “Get Ya Money” also make the cut. It ends with the piano ballad “Nobody Knows” where August vulnerably reveals the responsibilities and hardships of his rising success.
The Product II is another set from Alsina that solidifies his gritty-yet-smooth sound as his trademark.
