August Alsina released the music video for “Hip-Hop,” a song he dropped in April. The video debuted at the BET Awards pre-show last night.

Directed by Payne Lindsey, it uses Alsina’s hometown of New Orleans as a scenic backdrop to juxtapose urban life next to expansive and desolate bayous. Ultimately, the music video evokes a social message, with Alsina saying in the song he “can feel change.”
