August Alsina

August Alsina personifies struggle. His parents dealt with drug addiction, his brother was shot and killed, and as a New Orleans native, he was deeply affected by Hurricane Katrina’s devastation. He hasn’t allowed any of that to slow him down, though. The 21-year-old gained notoriety with his Trinidad James-assisted single “I Luv This ****,” which was off of his May 2013 DJ Drama-hosted mixtape, The Product 2. Then, late last year, the Def Jam signee dropped his upcoming album’s lead single, “Ghetto,” featuring Rich Homie Quan(Photo: Bennett Raglin/BET/Getty Images for BET)
