Video: August Alsina – ‘Grindin”

August Alsina

Six weeks after collapsing on stage during his show at New York City’s Irving Plaza, August Alsina gets back to business. The New Orleans crooner, who was hospitalized for exhaustion, dehydration, and seizures, spent three days in a coma and was forced to cancel the remaining dates on his “Testimony Live” tour.

But the hustle continues. On his first new song on six months, which was inspired by Lil Wayne’s “Grindin’,” he address the rumors, haters, and his now famous fall.

“A lot of these lames kept hatin’ on a ni**a / When I took a little fall you was steppin on a ni**a,” he sings on the Knucklehead-produced track.

He continues, “I just got of out of a coma / It showed me that when God is for me, no weapon can hold me / That’s why I go hard for N.O. and my homies, and I pay homage to ni**as before me.”

August will perform for his largest audience yet when he joins Usher on his “UR Experience” tour beginning November 1 in Montreal.

Watch him confront his critics and put on for his city in the dark and haunting video.

New Music: Theophilus London f/ Kanye West – ‘Can’t Stop’

Kanye West and Theophilus London

When he’s not working on his own album, Kanye West has been overseeing projects for Tyga, French Montana, and Theophilus London. Yeezus serves as executive producer of the latter’s new album Vibes and guests on the blissful “Can’t Stop.” He delivers a glorious verse over the soulful production, which is reminiscent of his Dark Twisted days.

“It’s alright, but it ain’t Ralph though / And unless your money talkin’, keep your mouth closed,” raps ‘Ye. “We smokin’ indo outdoor in Palo Alto / If this party ain’t got hoes, my intro’s my outro.”

“The goal was to get back to a happy place in my life,” London told The FADER of Vibes. “I went through some dark times. On this album, I was chasing demons and sacrificing a lot. I’m just excited that I could make a piece of work that I’m happy about, that my great aunt was spiritually here for me to help me finish writing this album.”

In addition to getting the Yeezus co-sign, London has tapped fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld to shoot the artwork for the album, which drops November 4.

Stream the entire album including the Kanye-assisted “Can’t Stop” below.
