August 08 Artist Death, Obituary – AUGUST 08 was the stage name of American singer, songwriter, and musician Ray Davon Jacobs, who was known professionally as AUGUST 08. The song “I’m the One” by DJ Khaled featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne is now at the top of the Billboard chart. He contributed to the song’s writing. Additionally, he contributed to the song “Fashion Week” by Wale, which also featured G-Eazy. August 08, a singer, songwriter, and producer who was based in South Los Angeles, passed away at the age of 31. The news was announced on Instagram by 88rising, the collective to which the artist had formerly belonged. However, the group did not specify the cause of the singer’s passing.
The collective penned in their message, “RIP August, the most generous and talented genius we have ever known. You will be missed beyond words.” “Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher and such a reliable friend over the course of all these years. We will be grateful to you for the rest of our lives for the happiness that you brought into every room and through every song. Your vitality, direction, and care provided an incredible amount of motivation and strength, both of which will be carried on forever.Father was August 08’s debut extended play (EP), and it was published by 88rising and Red Bull Records in May of 2018. “The project was really based around my father, and my father abandoned me when I was young, when I was 11 or 12 years old,” he stated prior to the project’s debut.
“My father left me when I was young, when I was 11 or 12 years old.” “But I also wanted to make it a thing where everybody who’s experienced the thing I’ve experienced can relate to it and feel something from it,” she said. “I’ve been there, and I’ve been there.” Nobody talks about experiencing those feelings or having problems with their fathers. Because of this, I believe that the lead song, titled “Funeral,” is a very significant piece to the puzzle of opening people up. To recognize that it’s a daring thing to say to someone, “Don’t say it at my funeral, say it to me now,” is the realization that “Funeral” is a crucial element of the puzzle.
Def Jam Recordings issued the following statement, which was shared with Pitchfork: “The whole Def Jam family mourns the untimely loss of Ray ‘August 08’ Jacobs. August will always be remembered by us as a cherished coworker and dear friend in addition to being a gifted lyricist, an excellent musician, and a one-of-a-kind artist. We send our most heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
