August Alsina is expressing some deep, disturbing emotions through powerful imagery in this brand new video for his single “F.M.L.” featuring Pusha T.
Last month, he had fans worried when he posted a photo of himself hanging from a noose to Instagram with the caption “Rest in peace Aug. Forever missed #holdyoudownforlife.” We figured out the photo was from the set of this video, and now we finally get to see what all this was about.
Through a disclaimer shared at the end of the video, August explains that he’s experienced suicidal thoughts in his life and offers a bit of encouragement to anyone currently going through it. Much like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s classic “Crossroads” video, August and Pusha experience out-of-body death experiences throughout the video as they illustrate the powerful lyrics of the song.
