August Alsina Looks At What Hip-Hop Is Really About At Its Core (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Even though August Alsina is not a traditional MC, Hip-Hop is a big part of his music. The Def Jam Records-backed singer follows up 2014’s Testimony with “Hip-Hop,” a single focused on the way things were when they were at their best. Nostalgic, intimate, and easy to relate to, the moment resonates with the experiences of many.

For the visual, the New Orleans, Louisiana native goes back to his own humble roots, showing family, the neighborhood, and the experience that has led him to write from the heart. The television in the video brings 2015 into the conversation, with footage of protests and police brutality. Hip-Hop is one of the voices of the people, and whether rapping or singing, all Heads should remember that.
