Published May 02, 2013As previously reported, New Orleans R&B singer August Alsina drops his The Product II mixtape on May 6, but you can hear another new song ahead of the due date now. It's called "Downtown," and you can stream it below.
While previous sneak peeks like "I Luv This Shit" were fun-filled party starters, there's a serious tone to "Downtown" that has Alsina detailing some crack rock-slinging, facing gunshots, and heading to funerals for fallen friends. "People dying every day / That ain't nothing new when you from downtown," he sings sadly. Kidd Kidd also jumps in on the melancholy cut for a few bars.
