R&B singer, August Alsina (who is set to tour with Usher this fall) was performing at Irving Plaza in New York City on Monday night, when he suddenly collapsed and fell off the stage into a crowd of devastated fans.
The paramedics were called and August is currently being treated, but we have not confirmed his current condition or the cause of his collapse. Sources close to the singer, say that he had not eaten or rested during the day, despite being urged to do so, by his friends and handlers. Apparently, it caught up with him while he was performing. The concert was immediately cancelled. August was on 106 and Park earlier on Monday, premiering his new video with Nicki Minaj. Our prayers for a speedy recovery. We will keep you posted on his condition.
*Update: August Alsina is still hospitalized in New York. He has suffered several seizures and marijuana was found in his system. His handlers said that he was just suffering from exhaustion, however, it has also been reported that he had been smoking very strong kush known as K.O. this pot is described as : insanely strong; a heavyweight that hits like a sledgehammer. Kid Cudi also collapsed on stage after smoking the same brand of weed during a music festival last month.
