This artist's playlist coming soon.
When you think of August you tend to think of the sweltering & unbearable heat, the mercury rising, and one of the hottest months of the year! Well, its no coincidence that this young aspiring artist from West Philadelphia was given this name because of his lyrical ability to destroy any emcee who wishes to contest the greatness within him. Thus, August is his name and you can compare his lyrical onslaught to the hottest months of the season. Without question, he will continuously bring you heat the naysayer will have no choice but to fold under the pressure and become a believer. August started writing rhythms at the age of 13 where he would form a group with 3 of his neighborhood friends called the Linkz. It was at this age where he would meet his fellow label mate, Five Grand & Allen Prezie Stokes at the Global Recording Group, who would take interest in the 3 youngsters and begin artist development shortly after. And as a joint decision, they decided it was best to split the trio into two separate groups. August would quickly gain recognition and the respect of his peers through his high school years winning various lunchroom battles over top contenders. This notion continued throughout the streets of West Philadelphia as his name and buzz begin to grow. In 2004, August would make it to the semi-finals of the WUSLs Rock The Mic Tour rap contest which ultimately landed him a permanent promotional advertisement slot for Jonesys mourning show on Philadelphias 103.9 The Beat. This would begin a trend of other Philly artist to follow thereafter. And in 2006, Global Recording Group signed August to his first solo deal to supply his fans with what they ever so demanded. Augusts songs reflect the experiences of a young man trying to achieve his goals of becoming a successful artist while be surrounded by an unstable environment that engulfs so many youths today. His style is very aggressive as he comes off in songs that are inspired by the street antics of his neighborhood. The average listener can definitely hear the hunger in his delivery from the first verse to the last. The work ethic can be describe as that of a machine and he paints a picture through his music for you to visualize that he doesnt plan to stop until he is on the top of everyones list. With a one of a kind delivery and still in his prime, August has a lot to offer to the hip hop game in the years to come. Attributing to his many influences are the greatest of emcees like Jay-Z, 2 Pac, and the Notorious B.I.G..
