Reports initially said Alsina suffered from severe dehydration and exhaustion. But his condition was far worst than that after suffering seizures once he was at the hospital.
He tweeted, “healthy enough to b Discharged from the hospital today… Scariest time of my life.. but im a soulja & so is God.Thankyou for your prayers.”
“I talked to him the day before [he was taken to the hospital], and he said to me, ‘I am so tired! I am beat!’ And I said to him, ‘August this is what you’ve been wanting. You gotta fight through it, you are gonna be fine.’ I thought when he said tired — you know we all work through it–he was JUST TIRED. But I didn’t know he meant that he was [literally] TIRED.”
Not only that, but as we reported, his girl Nicki Minaj also stopped by the hospital to spend some time with him and posted some love on Instagram as well.
“August, u know, I’m here to save u. still praying for my lil bro. He’s doingbetter,” Minaj said. Alsina responded on Instagram with, “‘Aug, u know I’m here to save you.’ She has to be the sweetest girl I know. #ASisterThatPrays.”
Many of his shows are now on hold due to his illness and recovery. Alsina was supposed to tour with Usher this coming November, but that could be up in the air now.

In keeping with hip-hop’s tradition of standing united in difficult times, many of the culture’s MC’s united for a song in honor of deceased teen Michael Brown.
Essence.com reports that the anthem, titled “Don’t Shoot” is the brainchild of rapper The Game, who personally felt the impact of Brown’s death in relation to his own family.
“The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” The Game told Rolling Stone. “I am a Black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them. This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
In addition to Diddy and Swizz Beatz and the Game, “Don’t Shoot” features Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank). All sales from the newly released song, which was released on iTunes Wednesday, will be donated to Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.
