88rising powerhouse August 08 released an emotional new single ‘Bussdown Your Soul (Feat. Barney Bones)’ The newly released track bears down one’s emotion that displayed August 08s’ strength as both a singer and a songwriter.
‘Bussdown Your Soul’ speaks to the emotion of being forced to be a part of things you don’t want any part of. In circumstances where you have no choice but to bang or starve, your only choice is to survive.

Throughout the overwhelming mediums, the emotions that tightly embrace you as 08’s vocals soothe your soul, the song forces you to choke on the struggles of his life while facing your own. The powerful and emotional performance that is exhibited shows the true artistry that 08 has, the ability to tell a story, and tell it so elegantly.
August 08 is from Los Angeles and made a name for himself while singing in Korea Town in California. He was signed to 88rising in 2018 and has produced (and written!) many tracks for his peers as well as outside of the company. Some people he’s written for are label-mates Rich Brian, Niki as well as Kpop star CL, Justin Bieber, and Wale. Within his music, 08 addresses the complex emotions that come alongside racism, mental health, gang violence, drug addiction and more. Until more music from August 08 is released, we’ll be jamming out to ‘Bussdown Your Soul’
