As the 2015 BET Awards were live on Sunday night, August Alsina took the opportunity to premiere the music video for
his latest single ‘Hip-Hop’. The track serves as the first release from his forthcoming and currently untitled sophomore LP.
Directed by Payne Lindsey, the visual for ‘Hip-Hop’ takes it back to August’s hometown of New Orleans. The singer-
songwriter puts a spotlight on police brutality and puts his hands up in prayer of better days to come. Overall a dope visual
and it’s good to see August has no issues going back to his birth place.
No release date or title just yet for August’s sophomore LP but the 22-year old did confirm in a recent interview that the anticipated project is finished. Just a matter of time now till the details start rolling in. Download ‘Hip-Hop’ on iTunes and watch the music video below.
