August Alsina has been getting a lot of attention online in recent times.
For one thing, the NO native went a little crazy at a show during the week, find out why here.
He also performed at Summer Jam 2014 and before hitting the stage, he spoke to the good folks over at HotNewHipHop.com.
On the agenda for the interview were two main topics, the first of which being Alsina’s 4 BET Awards nominations, which he said he feels good about but he also acknowledged the strength of his competition in each category; “its good competition to be in.”
The second talking point was this year’s XXL Freshman list, which featured R&B artists for the first time, of which August Alsina was one. His inclusion has been drawing some speculative responses but August believes that it was the right choice.
