Last month, he had us 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 lyrics of the song.
Let me tell you bout my self: I'm not scared to die
Been through so much shit, sometimes I wanna be in the sky
Wanna know how it feels to fly, wanna know how it feels to fly
Scared of hello, I ain't scared of goodbye
See I grew up in the jungle, where everybody broke
A lot of n-ggas never make it, all they know is selling dope
Life ain't easy in the Easy, murder capital
Might not make it here tomorrow, like I'm running outta hope
Watch it below.
