AUGUST 08 (Def Jam)

WHAT IT IS: Hailing from South L.A., former 88rising affiliate AUGUST 08, aka August Grant, demonstrates a dexterity for creating intricate R&B works that break genre boundaries. The multiplatinum singer/songwriter/producer—who boasts writing credits for DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One” f/Justin Bieber, Quavo & Chance The Rapper as well as collabs with Lil Wayne, G-Eazy and Sabrina Claudio—dropped his critically acclaimed EMOTIONAL CUH project last year. Following his Happy Endings With an Asterisk EP in 2019 and 2018’s debut FATHER, his seven-track third album is laden with raw, emotive vocals and dives into the artist’s inner thoughts, showcasing strength through vulnerability. AUGUST has established himself as an artist to watch.
