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.
