The Daily Grind Video

August Alsina is from the streets of Louisiana, and decides to take it “Downtown.”

August links up with rapper Kid Kid for the title track off his upcoming EP, Downtown: Life Under the Gun. In the video – which happens to be based on a true story – the R&B singer laments over the harsh realities that one can witness or be a part of when you’re from where he’s from.

Towards the end of the video, you see little girls in white dresses holding roses for the fallen and August face-to-face with a blindfolded man that’s all tied up.

Downtown: Life Under the Gun drops August 20th.
