August Alsina feat. Rick Ross – “Benediction” [New Music]

Def Jam freshman August Alsina teased fans over the weekend with an extended preview of his new track “Benediction” featuring MMG boss Rick Ross, from his debut album ‘Testimony’ due out April 15th, and now unveils the full version.

The Eric Hudson produced track is an autobiographical experience that touches on some of the hardships August has faced over his 21 years. From losing his brother to the streets, to his step father’s crack addiction, to finding himself homeless at just 17 years old…the hard hitting track pulls no punches.


“I had to tell it all”, August explains. “If people can see that I came from the same fucked up circumstances that they’re currently in, then they’ll know it’s possible for them to make it too. I’m in this position for a reason, so if I hold back, I’m cheating the people, I’m cheating myself, and I’m cheating God. The majority of people out there either come from the struggle or are still in the struggle. If we don’t tell our story, no one will. #StrugLlife”

Digital pre-orders and the tracklisting of ‘Testimony’ are available now at iTunes.  Fans that pre-order on iTunes will also receive the full version of “Benediction” feat. Rick Ross. Check out the track now.
