August Alsina Talks Tinder App, What Caused Him To Pass Out & Speaking With Meek Mill
(AllHipHop News) August Alsina dropped by The Breakfast Club to talk about a range of topics. The discussion began with Alsina sharing his thoughts on the dating app Tinder.
"I don't have a Tinder, but some people around me have Tinders. And I've seen Tinder come through," said August. "It's just really weird that you sign up to be a whore... I believe that Tinder is for sex and sex only. Tinder is for whoreness and whoreness only."
The conversation later turned to Alsina's recent health scare. The performer fainted during a show in New York City in September and had to be hospitalized. Reports at the time suggested that he suffered from a seizure that may have been caused by drug use, but Alsina denies narcotics caused his medical condition.
"I think what happened was, it was a case of me just basically putting other people before myself," he explained. "Just overworking myself and exhaustion. A lot of people would say, 'He fell out cause he's on some coke, or he's sipping lean.' It's like, 'What are y'all talking about?'"
August also added that not eating played a part in him passing out. According to the singer, he suffered from over ten seizures and was in a coma for three days where he dreamt about speaking with his late brother. Alsina also revealed he spoke with incarcerated MMG rapper Meek Mill about the situation.
"I was talking to Meek, and basically our conversation was sometimes God can find away to sit you down," August said. "In his case it's just another form of him having to sit down and rest for a minute. A very f**ked up case, but it all goes together. It's an opportunity to step back and realize some things."
