After months of viral videos, covers, and leaks, ‘The Product’ finally arrived for free download! 19-year old New Orleans native August Alsina released his DJ Scream-assisted debut mixtape, much to the delight of his Twitter and Facebook supporters. The Sunday, 4/15 release date is one of personal significance to August. It’s the birthday of his late brother who was gunned down in New Orleans in 2010. “Dedicated to my big brother. R.I.P. Melvin LaBranch III, 4.15.86 – 8.31.10”, appears on the mixtape’s back cover. The release is a fitting dedication to the brother who inspired August to leave the street life behind and make music his fulltime hustle.

August even managed to get the endorsement of New Orleans legend Juvenile, who appears on the tape to stamp young up and comer. Some early standout tracks from ‘The Product’ are the Hot Boyz/Drake cover “Ode to My Project Chicks” produced by The Exclusives, the anti-love song “Sucka”, produced by Sound Mob, and the D.
