Yesterday at Def Jam Records office, The-Dream’s new artist August Alsina held a private listening lounge for his forthcoming EP ‘Downtown: Life Under The Gun’. The New Orleans native was introduced to room full of music media by newly promoted EVP of Def Jam Recordings Shawn ‘Pecas’ Costner. The young artist took the time to explain the name of his EP before premiering a new music video. The EP is only comprised of 6 tracks, but theres nothing wrong with keeping things sort and sweet. We were very impressed with what we heard and left out of there even bigger fans. Checkout some photos from the listening session below.
