The following video discusses a recent conversation August had with Jada Pinkett-Smith.  He tells Jada about his liver problem.

August has a close relationship with Birdman.  He originally wanted to sign with Young Money but I’m glad that didn’t work out.  The record label is constantly dealing with legal issues.  Alsina is currently signed to Def Jam.

The Dream helped August get his deal with Def Jam.  The Dream signed him to his label, Radio Killa Records by way of Def Jam.  Pray for August!
