EXCLUSIVE: August Alsina Talks Inspiration, Nicki Minaj & More At Boston Show

August Alsina performing at the House of Blues in Boston, MA on September 13th, 2014 as part of his "Testimony Live" tour (Benjamin Esakof/Roman's Rap-Up).

Rarely does someone catch our attention like New Orleans R&B Singer August Alsina has. Not only does the 22 year-old singer have one of the most inspirational "coming up" stories we've heard, but he's also sold out almost every date on his "Testimony Live" tour with only one album out.

We were in attendance at the Boston date of August's tour, and had the chance to talk with him backstage about growing up, his inspirations, Nicki Minaj, and with somethings none of his "lurking" fans know about him.
