Akon Channels His Inner Street Fighter in 'Hurt Somebody' Video
Akon enters an underground street fight in a music video supporting his song "Hurt Somebody". He's fighting his opponent in a cage made of chain-link fence, while his featured guest French Montana witnesses the boxing match from audience row.
"It's really to promote non-gun violence. If you got a problem with somebody, ya'll should just take it in the ring," Akon explained message behind the video when premiering it on BET's "106 & Park". "We men, let's handle it. If we can't talk about it, then let's fight about it."
The track is taken from Akon's street album "The Koncrete Mixtape", which was released as a prelude for his next studio installment. The upcoming CD is titled "Stadium" and is slated to come out in the United States on September 11.
