2 Chainz is still working on pushing his sophomore album, B.O.A.T.S. II: #METime, and in an effort to give it an extra push he's announced a new solo tour, the "2 Good 2 Be T.R.U." tour, for which he'll bring along Pusha T, August Alsina and Cap 1.
For this week's Track Breakdown, we called upon rising singer August Alsina. August already has a deal locked in with Def Jam, through none other than r'n'b singer and hit-maker, The-Dream. With mentoring from Terius Nash, there is no doubt that August will go far with his music.
