After releasing his debut album “Testimony” in 2014, August Alsina is finally heading to New Zealand and Australia in April.
During this time, August has had his fair share of battles and released some serious bangers. These are the 3 reasons why you should purchase your tickets before they sell out.
- His Music Is Fire.
With tacks like “I Luv This Shit” and “Numb,” to “Benediction” and “No Love,” August’s diverse catalogue will take you on a journey from life in the clubs, to personal dilemmas. Augusts’ catalogue also includes features with the likes of DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Rick Ross, B.o.B, Yo Gotti, Trinidad James, and Nicki Minaj – just to name a few.
2. He’s A Fighter
Even though August has released music over the last few years, he hasn’t popped off as much as he deserves due to the issues he’s had with his health. Back in 2017, August dropped an interview with Jada Pinkett-Smith where he revealed the diagnosis to the world. “I have a liver disease where my autoimmune system is fighting against itself,” he said. “The reality of it is, I’m sick all the time.”
Please excuse my defense mechanism in this clip.. I'm sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with my fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family. My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. 😞😒 but they were FIGHTERS & that's all that matters. 💪🏽✨✨✨ Just ride with me is all I ask.
In 2015, August had to undergo serious eye surgery to correct issues he was having that were causing him to lose sight.
This could of forced August to step away from the game – but he’s still here – dropping music and touring.
So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right. In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating ihad to do this surgery. This shit is beyond painful & Life be throwin' a nigxa curve balls but what I've gained from it all is priceless… A lot of things that are so natural to us in life (like waking up and being able to see 👀) we can take it for granted. Thank God the OG for allowing me to see.. The good the bad the ugly, I'm just glad to see👀
3. He’s Amazing Live
August will be touring Australia and New Zealand in April 2018.
