On August Alsina‘s last Booth feature, the official remix of the dancefloor-ready I Luv This Sh*t, the Def Jam crooner was clearly enjoying himself, but remained in more or less full control of his faculties. Things get a little sloppier on Numb, a newly-released promo single which finds the New Orleans repper smoking trees and popping bottles till he can’t feel his face. First released in August, the record has received a considerable boost in guest muscle since its first incarnation: originals IAMSU! and Problem are swapped out for Southern heavyweights B.o.B and Yo Gotti. As the collaborators get faded, DJ Mustard provides a suitably hype, trap-infused backdrop for their bars. This liquor-soaked club banger isn’t attached to a larger project, but those feeling it can keep their browsers locked to the Booth for all the latest from August Alsina and his impressive cast of connects.
