August Alsina Talks Almost Signing To YMCMB, Chris Brown And Going ‘Downtown’ With The Breakfast Club

August Alsina’s hood-to-riches story is a familiar narrative but few can say they bumped Robin Thicke out of the top spot on the Urban charts. The “I Luv This Shit” singer sat down with the Breakfast Club to talk about his hardships growing up, how his remix with Trey Songz and Chris Brown came about, nearly inking a deal with Birdman and Co., being eskimo brothers with Kidd Kidd, why he salutes Lyfe Jennings and why Breezy catches a lot of flack. Charlamagne tops it off by schooling August on his “eating habits.” His EP Downtown: Life Under The Gun available on iTunes here.
