Last night during the BET Awards pre-show, August Alsina premiered the music video to his latest single, “Hip-Hop”. The New Orleans native reminisces on his not-so-perfect past, and prays for a better tomorrow. Present-day footage of police brutality is shown on the screen as August is seen walking down the streets of his hometown holding a baby, while those around him hold up “Black Lives Matter” signs.

Salute to August Alsina for using his music platform to encourage much needed change.
