August Alsina is pretty much an open book when it comes to sharing his personal experiences with the world. The 21-year-old New Orleans birthed R&B crooner keeps it "100%" at all times. If he likes something, he will let you know, if he dislikes something, he will let you know (cue BET’s 106 & Park when he checked host Keshia Chante).
We recently chopped it up with the rising sensation, and he left us with a few tidbits that people may or may not know about him.
Alsina's debut album, Testimony, is out now!
I would have to f**k with Lauryn Hill. I respect what she’s about. Her first album was crazy, It has so much substance, and she was singing about some real sh*t. That’s crazy because she only put out one album.
I know one girl, this has only happened to me once, I met her and at that point I knew, like damn, I like her. It ain’t been no girl since then that made me feel that way.
Hell no, I wasn’t blessed with that gift right there; I can’t rap, I’m going to stay in my lane.
Favorite New School Artist
I rock with Brandy; I think she’s super-dope. She really get down to the niddy, she sings her ass off.
From day one since I was born, all the wrong, all the good, all the bad, has shaped me to be who I am today, so I don’t regret sh*t. I think that’s what life is about. If you go through some bad sh*t, grow, you f**k up, grow… you learn from it. That’s why I am the person I am today and that’s why I’m where I’m at today.
