New Video: August Alsina feat Nicki Minaj ‘No Love’

Share Button

 

Last night, August Alsina premiered his latest single “No Love” visual on 106 & Park. I just happened to be tuning in, caught a glimpse and fell in love with it. In the video Nicki Minaj (featured on the track) plays August’s love interest similar to The Game in Nicki’s “Pills and Potion”; however, in August’s video we actually get to see him stepping out on Nicki who plays his “main” with two “sides”. August plays a dude caught up in the hype and mistakenly cheating on a seemingly good woman. When have we not heard that story before.

In a recent interview with Rap-Up TV, August opened up about shooting the video with the “Anaconda” rapper, who also wrote the treatment.

“Nicki was very, very deeply involved with this one in particular, as far as the video goes,” he said. “She had a vision for it and she really, really is a big fan of the record, which was real important to me because it makes it that much more special.”

As I write this post I am deeply sadden. The news broke that Simone Battle for girl group, G.R.L, passed away on Friday (September 6 2014) from a suspected suicide and I could not bring myself to move even hours after reading the news. Is it me or is it really that death is becoming more frequent. Yesterday it was Simone, last week it was Joan Rivers and on a more personal note 3 days ago a guy from my old neighborhood.

RIP Joan Rivers

Guardians Back on Top: Weekend Box Office Roundup

Guardians of the Galaxy is back on top! The Marvel movie is now the top grossing film of the summer, passing Transformers: Age of Extinction. Other than that, this weekend’s box office is nothing new. It’s basically the same as last week. It has Guardians and TMNT on top with a bunch of new movies failing to match. If I Stay, When the Game Stands Tall, and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For all premiered this week, but none of them managed to get to the top. The long anticipated Sin City sequel did the worst out of all three newcomers, barely making over six million.

Did you see any movies this weekend? Do you think Guardians and TMNT are good enough to be on top of the box office for this long?
