August Alsina feat. Jeezy – Make It Home
If you haven’t heard of August Alsina yet, he’s a rising star in the hip hop/R&B crossover genre and found huge success last year with his hit single I Luv This Shit. The New Orleans artist is set to release his debut album Testimony later this year on April 15th, and we’ve just gotten the first single from the project. August recruits Jeezy for a verse on the single, titled Make It Home, and it’s a smooth track that definitely has the right feel of a big radio single.

This song is nice, and August Alsina sounds smooth as hell over this beat. When I heard the first half of the song, I was skeptical of how well Jeezy would be able to mix in his raspy, abrasive vocals on such a smooth track, but Jeezy actually does his thing and has a dope verse on Make It Home! My only criticism of this track is that it might sound too similar to I Luv This Shit, but maybe I’m just saying that because I just listened to the two songs back to back.
Regardless, Make It Home definitely has the potential to find the same success that I Luv This Shit found on the radio, and that would be a great look for August Alsina in building the buzz for his debut Testimony, which drops on April 15th. Shout to Rap-Up.
