Angela Yee hosted the private listening party for Def Jam artist, August Alsina. Testimony is the title of August’s debut release and Pusha T, Fabolous, Donnell Rawlings, DJ Khaled, Sharon Carpenter and more came out to support.

When August addressed the crowd he was overcome with emotions that he choked up before everyone. Once he regained his composure, August said that he’s “just a real n***” from New Orleans and came from nothing. Remembering where he came from made it easier to appreciate the moment and his accomplishments as an artist. Def Jam also presented August with a gold plaque for the success of “I Luv This S***.”
