August Alsina took to social media this week to announce his sophomore album, titled This Thing We Called Life.

The New Orleans singer made the announcement on Instagram, via a video in which he plays the album for DJ Khaled who gives him praise.

"The structure's unbelievable, man. Not lying to you, it's on my mama," Khaled says. "I like the way you sequenced the album. I love the music. The only time I've ever heard albums like that was Dr. Dre"s Chronic or Nas' Illmatic."

So far, August has released two singles from the album -- "Hip-Hop" and "Why I Do It" featuring Lil Wayne.

This Thing Called Life is due this fall.
