New Music: August Alsina f/ Rick Ross – ‘Benediction’ [Snippet]

August Alsina blesses the Internet with a two-minute snippet of his Rick Ross collaboration “Benediction.” The New Orleans crooner pays tribute to his late brother and tells his tale of survival on the soulful track, which features a holy verse from Rozay.

“It’s like the ending track on the album and it just simply says, let us in with the benediction,” August told Rap-Up TV. “Why not go get Ross? And he spit that shit on it too.”

The full song will be available if you pre-order his debut Testimony on iTunes this Tuesday.

The album arrives April 15 featuring Pusha T and the Jeezy-assisted single “Make It Home.”
