OVERALL RATING (⭐⭐⭐)
August Alsina pays homage to both Houston and New Orleans on “Rounds.”
Just yesterday, August Alsina released “NOLA” — a gritty anthem dedicated to his hometown of New Orleans. Today, he decided to release “Rounds” — a song that has him paying homage to both New Orleans and Houston.
“Rounds” features an instrumental that is as luscious as it gets. Over it, August switches between rapper & singer, playa & trill n***a, and braggadocios and humble. On the real, if you like the New Orleans-based artist’s old s**t, you will like “Rounds” a lot!
I’m looking forward to listening to August Alsina’s forthcoming album, The Product III: stateofEMERGEncy.
