August Alsina and Lil Wayne drop the "Why I Do It" video.
Rising R&B star August Alsina got his hometown hero, Lil Wayne, on "Why I Do It," the lead single off his upcoming sophomore album, This Thing Called Life. The two New Orleans natives have just dropped the video to their smooth collab, in which they take us for a ride through the day in the life of a successful but steady-grinding artist.
The behind-the-scenes video shoots and studio sessions are brought to life with flashy animated visuals and lyrics. The video properly answers the unnecessary question off which the song is based; Why do Alsina and Weezy do what they do? Listen to the song and watch the grind -- the answer's right there.
