Elmwood, LA, United States
With the love and hustle of the Crescent City running through his veins, August is eager to follow in the footsteps of the NOLA music legends that paved his way. His recently inked deal Def Jam Recordings looks to be a great step in the right direction, but music wasn't always in his future. August learned at an early age that drugs and money could make you, or break you. With both his father and stepfather battling crack addiction, August's mother moved their family to Houston, Texas in search of a fresh start. But Houston provided no happy ending. For years, a young August endured a home life plagued by drugs and violence.
