3. August Alsina Update!!

Fans have been waiting the entire week for an update on August Alsina’s medical condition. From the looks of today it seems that his team has done a great job hiding what was exactly wrong with him because his Instagram post today revealed a lot. the shocking part of it all was that Alsina just recently woke up from a three day coma which likely resulted from his seizures. With the photo below, Alsina said:


This is a bit graphic but i wanted to share this w/ every follower of mine. iWoke up out of a 3 day coma… &This guy @banggang_moneyteam right here never once left my side. What I’m tryna say is cherish the ones in life who cherish you & take good care of yourself. Your life can be gone in a split second’. I’m recovering well and thankyou for all of your prayers & concerns. -Yung

This is very sad news to hear, especially from such a talented artist but again we wish him a speedy recovery.
