He wrote: 

This is a bit graphic but i wanted to share this w/ every follower of mine. iWoke up out of a 3 day coma... &This guy @banggang_moneyteam right here never once left my side. What I'm tryna say is cherish the ones in life who cherish you & take good care of yourself. Your life can be gone in a split second'. I'm recovering well and thankyou for all of your prayers & concerns. -Yung

On Tuesday, it was reported that Alsina suffered from seizures after his faint, possibly brought on by exhaustion, and he remained in treatment.

This has all occurred as BET's Best New Artist of the Year is in the middle of a lengthy tour with dates scheduled through the remainder of the year in support of his major-label debut album Testimony

The New Orleans R&B singer just released a new video for "No Love" (Remix) featuring Nicki Minaj and he nabbed his first Billboard airplay chart-topper last October with the Trinidad James-assisted "I Luv This Shit." That track also peaked at No. 1 on the Nielsen BDS-based Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay ranking.
