Before that though, fans of the Southern gent can catch him bearing his ink-kissed body for ‘Urban Ink‘ magazine, who called on photographer John Ricard to celebrate his artwork with a moving photo shoot.

Moving, as their time together saw Alsina reveal how the passing of his older brother inspired some of his more heartfelt designs.

    Roll in the gimmicks…………..

    I hope they are not trying to replace CB with her!

    He’s a lessor with a struggle voice.

  5. FutureCIARA March 24, 2014

    She looks like every NY butch queen walking around in Brooklyn. Im really not impressed with his artistry, looks, nor the way TGJ is trying to shoove him down our throats…..

    If hes got it, let it be natural!! No gimmicks.. Then maybe I will listen!

    • Alslayna March 24, 2014

      but hes from New Orleans. What gimmicks? He is raw and not afraid to talk about his life story. At least he ain’t parading around trying to be a Hollywood w**** like your fake flop fave. Go purchase one of her three flop albums! August doesn’t need your support ugly f**:….

    August is not,I repeat NOT an R&B artist. He is a singer but his material is hip hop all day. August =\= CB and they are homies anyway

  7. ROSEGOLD March 24, 2014

    I like a lot of his music but he’s gonna have to sing about something other than selling drugs, his brother passing, smoking/drinking and strippers if he wants to have longevity in this industry. I actually love his voice…..

  8. NANCY SLAY’S March 24, 2014
