August Alsina has been promoting his album Testimony pretty heavily today, even with the little incident at 106 & Park. Other than not wanting to be asked about the beef with Trey Songz, he also debuted a new music video. He premiered the Fabolous assisted single “Get Ya Money”, which is produced by Spinz & Dun Deal. The video follows a independent woman doing what she does to get her money, which plays off perfectly from the song itself.

Fif has been releasing quite a lot of material lately but some have been a hit and miss with me but this one. 50 Cent released a brand new single “Hustler” yesterday, in which DJ Enuff premiered but alongside the premiere he releases the official video as well. The hard hitting single is produced by none other than Jake One, and man, this one sounds so good. Keep these songs like this coming Curtis. This will be featured on Fif’s forthcoming Animal Ambition which is in stores June 3rd.

Don’t even have to listen to it – if it’s a Moteleola track, I already know what time it is. Maybe it’s time you get familiar with the producer, as well as his newest partnered emcees WIZE & Ross who collab for a pretty nice record on the low.
