August Alsina releases another visual for his latest single “Downtown” feat Kidd Kidd off his second mixtape The Product 2. The twenty-one year old New Orleans native has been heavy on his R&B grind ever since he got into the game. His previous single “I Love This Sh!t” featuring Trinidad James showcases Alsina’s soul and grit and the new single does the exact same with lyrics that provide a look into his life while living
downtown in the gritty streets of New Orleans. Coming from a tumultuous childhood the song reflects on the rough environment and is dedicated to his older brother who was gunned down in the streets due to living a life of drugs and violence. At just 21 years of age, Alsina has seemingly already experienced a full life of ups and downs due to being surrounded by drugs and violence at an early age. However, he has decided to change his path and pursue music full time.
The future looks extremely bright for August Alsina as his debut project is said to be in the hands of Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter/producer The Dream through Def Jam imprint.His album,Downtown: Life Under the Gun was just released August 20th,2013.
