August Alsina is already at the top of the charts and he proves exactly why in this impressive freestyle for XXL Magazine…

August Alsina XXL 2014 Freshman Freestyle

R&B music is gradually easing back onto the airwaves through the voices of a few tremendously talented new young people and 21-year-old NOLA crooner August Alsina is leading the pack.

Releasing his debut album “Testimony” last month, August is quickly rising to the top of the music scene by combining his undeniable vocal talent with raw lyrics and an honest, charismatic, unfiltered personality that continues to win over audiences across the country.

Singing since the age of 14 and making his mark on mainstream in 2012 with the release of his single “I Luv This Sh*t,” August was recently named to the ever-popular XXL Freshman Class of 2014 and in this vocal freestyle for XXL  below, he’s not only holding his own as the sole singer on the list of rappers, he’s putting a few of them to shame. Check it out below and see what you think.

If you’ve been sleeping on August, it’s definitely time for you to wake up! And we’re glad to help.

On the surface he’s an authentic southern ladies man who sings from his soul and speaks from his heart, but his story has more layers than you’d ever imagine. From dealing with family drug addictions, violence, heartbreaking loss and homelessness to being a caretaker for his three young nieces in the wake of his brother’s tragic death, this young man has seen it all and then some.

Hit the flip to learn a few facts about this young legend in the making, including a precious video of August with his three adorable nieces.
