Earlier this week, August Alsina collapsed on stage during a show in NYC. Today, the singer shared his first message since the incident, revealing that he has been in a coma for three days and had just woken up. August didn't reveal what caused him to collapse, but TMZ had reported after the incident that he was suffering from dehydration and exhaustion, but no drugs other than marijuana were found in his system. August is currently scheduled to hit the road with Usher for the "UR Experience" tour, though it's not yet known if that is still the plan with August's current health situation. We will continue to update this story when more details are made available.
His full statement can be read below.
