August Alsina is up next for the XXL Freshman freestyle series where he delivers a dope singing verse. Actually the best so far.
“I went and looked at the artists like Future and watched the people that XXL chose go off and do some special shit and maintain their grind. I had to go chop it up with the staff at XXL. It was a thing like, ‘You a singer. How can you be a Freshman? We don’t do singers.’ For me, it’s like, of course XXL has catered to rappers. I know what hip-hop is, a nigga story, a nigga struggle put into a song.”
