New Music: August Alsina f/ Jeezy – ‘Make It Home’

Make It Home

Following the release of his breakout EP Downtown: Life Under the Gun, August Alsina is gearing up for the April 15 release of his full-length debut Testimony.

The New Orleans crooner connects with fellow Def Jam artist Jeezy on the album’s first single “Make It Home,” co-written by The Exclusives and produced by The Featherstones. On the powerful and personal song, August chronicles his tale of struggle, hustle, and survival.

“As an artist, I struggle with how much of myself to give to the people,” said August. “How much I want my personal business to be judged. I think the EP struck good a balance of who I am and what I’ve been through, but that was just the beginning. Nothing is held back on Testimony. When people hear my story, and see that I came from nothing, they’ll see that it’s possible for them too.”

The album’s release date coincides with the birthday of his older brother, Melvin LaBranch III, who inspired August to pursue music. Melvin was tragically gunned down in New Orleans in 2010.

Listen to August hustle his way to a better life on the gritty anthem.

    @Kiing, couldn’t have said it better myself! Chris is a great performer he dances and all & August is a soul singer! Both Great but in different lanes. Kind of like saying K.mitchelle or Tamar Braxton is like Beyonce.

    I’m a big fan of August. love his music and realness. But I feel like his music content is the same. Coming up from the bottom, selling crack rock, etc. I’m hoping his album has some other content besides those usual topics in his music. But still love the music and this new single. Keep it coming August.

    When you live in “THESE” parts on New Orleans, thugs will continue to kill each other. Either pull yourself up by your bootstraps and avoid “temptation” and get yourself to the civilized areas or relegate yourself to a life of misery.
