On Monday (Sept 15), August collapsed while performing onstage at Irving Place in Manhattan. He was immediately rushed to the hospital where he was said to be recovering for the past week. However, no one knew that the Def Jam singer was actually in a coma for 72 hours.
In a very honest Instagram post, Alsina detailed his health scare and thanked fans for their prayers and support.
August wrote on Instagram:
