Born and bred from the streets of Downtown-New Orleans, enter into the game, Hip-Hop Crooner August Alsina... With the love and hustle of the Crescent City running through his veins, August is eager to not just follow in the footsteps of the NOLA music legends that paved his way, but to create his own lane. It was his brother’s death, coming just days before August’s 18th birthday, that served as his motivation to not become another statistic, but to pursue his musical aspirations on an entirely new level.
Born on the tiny Caribbean Island of Dominica and raised on the Eastside of Atlanta, 21 Savage, comes from a background of poverty, struggle, crime, and violence. This pain and anger come across as a clear message in his music, do not mess with me or my people. Starting with his debut mixtape The Slaughter Tape, 21 has developed a sound that is somewhere between Atlanta's Trap and Chicago's Drill as a hyper violent, hyper real view of the Real Atlanta. He has forged meaningful relationships with super producers Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin as well as upstart Fukk-12. His follow-up tape "Free Guwop EP" was a collaboration with Sonny Digital. 21 Savage is quickly becoming the voice of the streets, the voice of the real Atlanta.
