After August Alsina lashed out at interviewer Keshia Chanté for asking about his feud with Trey Songz during an April 15 interview on ’106 & Park’, you may be curious to learn more about this moody R&B singer. Let’s get to know August!

If you caught August Alsina‘s awkward interview on 106 & Park, you may have the impression that he’s just another hot-headed hip hop artist. But there’s definitely more to this talented singer than meets the eye. Find out everything you need to know below!

August Alsina Flipped Out On ‘106 & Park’ — 5 Things To Know About R&B Singer

1. Lauryn Hill is one of August’s greatest inspirations.

No one in August’s family was musically inclined but he was inspired to sing by Lauryn Hill after seeing her performance in Sister Act 2

2. August overcame a troubled family life to have a successful music career.

Both his father and stepfather battled crack cocaine addictions, and his father eventually died. August’s older brother, Melvin La’Branch III, was shot and killed on August 31, 2010. His death inspired August to became more committed to his music career.

3. August is best known for his single “I Luv This Sh*t” featuring Trinidad James.

August released his hit song I Luv This Sh*t” in 2013, and it reached number four on the US R&B charts. Later in 2013, he released a remix featuring Chris Brown and his now nemesis Trey Songz

4. August has a beef with fellow R&B crooner Trey Songz.

And he wasn’t always too shy to talk about it. August told Rap Up in March, 2014:

“I don’t really f*** with Trey right now. We don’t get along right now. We ain’t on the same page. He did some other s*** and we just don’t rock. Like I tell people all the time, show me that you’re this person on day one… You should always be that person. We were supposed to have a show together and it just went left ’cause I can’t deal with n***s’ egos and attitudes ’cause I’m just a real n**** comin’ through and I’m rockin’.”

5. August just released a new album on April 15.

We haven’t heard the last of August. His debut studio album Testimony was released on April 15. He released the album’s lead single, “Make It Home” featuring Jeezy, on Jan. 14.

Well, now you know August! We hope you’ll give him and music a chance, despite his harsh words on 106 & Park. After all, everyone loses their cool now and then.
