August Alsina has been hiding from the music forefront for a while now, but we’re glad he’s on his way to releasing new music.

The New Orleans singer announced the title of his new album: This Thing Called Life. And thanks to Instagram, we know Alsina played the album for DJ Khaled, who gave him very good feedback.


In the clip above, Khaled is heard saying:

“The structure’s unbelievable, man. Not lying to you, it’s on my mama.”

Khaled continues:

“I like the way you sequenced the album. I love the music. The only time I’ve ever heard albums like that was Dr. Dre’s Chronic or Nas’ Illmatic.”

Khaled has set the bar high comparing the album to these two classics. This Thing Called Life is scheduled to be released this fall.
