As someone who's sold drugs in order to make ends meet, August Alsina isn't about to look down on someone else's hustle. On a standout cut off his highly-anticipated Def Jam debut, the New Orleans crooner expresses solidarity with, and admiration for a shawty who's working that pole for profits, assuring her, “I ain't judgin' you... go on and Get Ya Money.” Fabolous echoes the headliner's sympathetic words on the guest tip. In his closing 16, the East Coast mainstay defends his First Lady, who just so happens to be a dancer: “Two wrongs don't make a right, but two strongs make a power couple.” Spinz and Dun Deal join forces to create the instrumental backdrop, a low key arrangement built around looped electric guitar arpeggios. For this cut, last month's Kissin' on My Tattoos and much more, cop Alsina's Testimony LP.
Update: We have added the Payne Lindsey-directed visuals for August Alsina's Get Ya Money single.
