Brian K Washington Jr, (born November 3, 1988), born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and known to his family and friends as August Stylz. He has confidently declared its his time, as he prepares to release his debut mix tape ‘#Ijustwannarap’ coming Spring 2012! This will be the first release of many on the new record label,” New Mindset” which he is the Co-founder.
Ever since he’s been able to speak he’s had a heart for hip hop, until finally at age 17 he stepped into what he was destined to do. Growing up listening to hip hop’s greatest icons like Eminem, Tupac and Jay Z, he developed his skills in ‘storytelling’ on the mic, and relating to the heart of his listeners. He understands the power of the mic and a spotlight, and has something real to say.
His goal is to create ‘timeless’ music that can be listened to over and over, and by generations and generations. Effortlessly, he’s able to relate to the listeners, who want to have a good time and party, the one who’s going thru the ups and downs of life, the hustler on the block trying to make it out, and even the love sick hearts. He‘s that ‘cool dude’ that everyone gathers to listen to , as he takes life’s moments and lyrically makes sense of it all. Musically he’s versatile in stlye, from hard core beats, to ‘in da club poppin bottles’, to old school flavor mixed with R&B, with a respect for musical instruments and even a church organ or two. You never know what you may hear from him. He says “Expect the unexpected, because there are no limits!”
