August Alsina is an American hip-hop singer from New Orleans signed to Def Jam Recordings.
Alsina was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Although no one in his family was musically inclined, he was inspired to sing by Lauryn Hill in Sister Act 2. Alsina first uploaded videos to YouTube in 2007 at age 14, starting with a cover of "Hypothetically" by Lyfe Jennings. With both his father and stepfather battling crack cocaine addiction, Alsina's mother moved Alsina to Houston, Texas, in search of a fresh start after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. After his older brother was shot and killed in 2010, Alsina became more committed to his music and relocated to Atlanta in 2011.
His first mixtape release The Product was released in April 2012, though an Untitled mixtape with six acoustic covers premiered in October 2011). His single "I Luv This Shit" (featuring Trinidad James) was released in January 2013, and his mixtape The Product 2 followed in May 2013. The EP Downtown: Life Under the Gun was released on August 20, 2013, with a video for "Hell on Earth" released the following month.
