What’s better than attending an August Alsina show? DJing an August Alsina show! LA-born and Atlanta-rasied, DJ Era, is blazing a trail of success with his latest full-time gig as “I Luv This Shit” singer Alsina’s tour DJ. Spinning records on the road with Monica, Lloyd, Young Joc, J. Holiday, Sean Garrett and Sammie, Era has mastered the ability to keep a crowd hype and excited about an artist.

The Source caught up with DJ Era straight off The Arsenio Hall Show to find out 5 Things To Know While DJing with August Alsina:

1. Must like lots of Popeyes and Bud Light
2. Be ready to WORK
3. Loyalty is everything
4. No fake sh**, be real
5. Be prepared for a fan base like no other. We call em “Augies.”

 Check out what DJ Era had to say about being on tour:“Nothing like it! Traveling all across the country and around the world doing what you love. The energy from the fans as soon as you hit that stage. Having the power to control a crowd of a couple thousand people however you please. Crazy and a dream come true! I’ve always wanted to go on tour and live in and out of hotels/tour bus for a long period hahaha. Very tiring though, constant go, nonstop! But I love it! No better feeling like being on tour! Especially with a talented dude like my bro, August Alsina, along with the homies, Pusha T and 2 Chainz on the 2 Good to be TRU Tour.”
