August Alsina Confronts Suicidal Thoughts In New 'FML' Video

Screen Shot 2014-06-26 at 1.37.52 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-26 at 1.36.47 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-26 at 1.44.28 PMAugust Alsina is on his "Ready to Die" ish in his new video for "FML" featuring Pusha T.


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
