August Alsina returns to New Orleans while saluting the past and praying for the future in the music video for “Hip Hop,” which premiered during Sunday’s BET Awards.
In the Payne Lindsey-directed clip, the New Orleans native hits the block in a pair of overalls and reminisces on the days when Biggie got shot, while the TV shows present day images of police brutality.
August prays for better days ahead, walking through the streets with a baby in his arms, while people hold up “Black Lives Matter” signs.
Watch the gripping visuals below:
