Cash Money Records, Interviews

August Alsina Talks Nearly Signing To Cash Money & Wanting To Work With Lil Wayne

Tue, May 13, 2014 by

August Alsina, who is currently signed to Def Jam, recently sat down with Vlad TV to chat about how he nearly signed to Cash Money Records and wanting to work with Lil Wayne.

The 21-year-old music artist explained that he was going to join CMB at first, because he is from the same place as the bosses, New Orleans, but after four meetings in a year with Birdman and Slim, he felt like they weren’t ready to promote him at the current moment.

When asked if he wants to work with any of the YMCMB artists, Alsina mentioned that he hopes to bump into Weezy F Baby at some point of his career, as well as discussing how the label is an influence to every upcoming artist out of the N.O.

Thanks to Abubakar for the heads up! Would you like to see a August Alsina and Tunechi collaboration?

  • Tune Up

    Who is this guy?

    • Because

      Go listen to his debut album, he is dope

    • Jae Millz

      Some wannabe. Not as good as Jae Millz tho! #MillzburryDoughboy

  • ucla

    definitely want to see tune and august work on a song together and make a New Orleans classic like he did with lloyd on ‘you’

    • YoungJT1092

      That’s why Im pro-Lloyd Carter 5. Him and Wayne flowed on a couple beats in the past, and given Lloyd is more experienced they could make a super NOLA hit, possibly throw Boosie on the track too, and that’s a automatic banger for the 504.

      • Guest

        Boosie from BR not the NO

        • YoungJT1092

          Oops, no disrespect to any body, but I do mean the super Lousiana collab.

    • god

      I cant find the song you. Can you help me I can only find the live version and I like that one

      • David D

        you’ve never head lloyd – you ft. wayne?

        • god

          Not that I know, where can I find him

  • New Orlean$ East

    If there was a song on C5 featuring both August Alsina and Jay Electronica I would be a very happy guy…..

    • LilPunjabi

      Danny/Tuneian/Weezian/anyone got any idea who gave name “young money”?
      Also who invented “young moolah baby”?
      All by Tune or someone else; just show-up in mind while listening to mix-tape.
      Thanks in advance!

        Wayne and Fee Banks came up with the name Young Money together. Wayne came up with “Young Mula baby”.

    • Malik

      It’s not a real single it’s just something to get you hype.

    • crazykuan

    • Young Hitta

      Because it’s just a promo single, it’s not even the official first single for C5. Believe me was just to get the hype up. They are about to drop the official first single soon, you can listen to the beat on the forums. And I would say C5 will probably be released sometime between August and September.

    • nfs444

      Tha Carter V doesn’t even seem real anymore. I mean nobody even knows about Believe Me in the mainstream Hip-Hop/Rap consumer market cuz it ain’t on iTunes… It’s literally going to be Cortez Bryanted until 2015 probably

      • Giraffe Boy

        The hype for C5 went from maximum overload to low in just a week

        • nfs444

          I know it’s like all of these big time athletes push it and now it’s disappeared… This is some Shutter Island type shit

        • Young Hitta

          Don’t go by believe me cuz Believe Me isn’t even the first official single, it was just a promo single, It was just supposed to hype up the fans for the first single, that’s why they not going to shoot a video for it or release it to itunes and you probably won’t even hear it on the radio. The official first single is coming soon, the beat is on the forums.
