August Alsina Talks Being In A Coma, Touring With Usher And More

The last time August Alsina was in New York City, he ended up in a three-day coma after falling off of the stage during a performance at Irving Plaza. He is now back in NYC as the opening act for Usher’s UR Experience Tour and stopped by Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning show to speak about the traumatic experience.

“It just happened,” said the 22-year-old. “After I fell off stage I was blank. My managers and everybody who was there was telling me I basically looked like I had some type of exorcism going on. Nobody in my family has ever had those type of problems.”

The “No Love” singer also spoke it feels to be touring with Usher.

“Its been dope. Just for me to come from doing my own tour and  I was like damn man, I’m doing House of Blues and selling out and venues like that and I felt good about it. To now get on tour with Ush and be in an arena where it’s all these people and to actually be doing Madison Square Garden is a very very big deal.”

Watch below as he talks about his relationship with Nicki Minaj, why he shouldn’t shop with Usher and more.
