Louisiana Finest: Lil Wayne and August Alsina Link Up for “Why I Do It” + Lil Weezyana Fest This Weekend

Best of the Booth or Best from the Boot. Both apply here as Lil Wayne and August Alsina are a couple of the best not only in their respective genres but also two of the more successful artists out of New Orleans. Everyone wants to “put on” for their hometown whenever they get the chance to do so and this is shaping up to be a great weekend for the city.

This collab seemed like it was only a matter of time but that takes nothing away from its impact as the two go back and forth in the new single “Why I Do It”. Originally it was scheduled to be dropped the same day as the Lil Weezyana Fest but the anticipation was just too much as we were given an early listen. We were still running his last single “Hip Hop” non-stop, hopefully there’s more to come as we await the upcoming album ‘This Thing Called Life‘.

Check out the single from August Alsina featuring Lil Wayne below and get some details or purchase tickets for Lil Weezyana Fest right here as well.
