Rising R&B star August Alsina was performing at Irving Plaza in downtown Manhattan for a screaming audience when the “I Luv This Sh*t” singer suddenly passed out and fell off stage. Security and stage hands rushed to his aid and he was quickly carried away. According to witnesses, he was taken out on a stretcher then to the hospital.
Alsina took home the BET award for “Best New Artist” earlier this year and just released the video to his Nicki Minaj assisted song “No Love.”
The medical scare prompted the trending hashtag #PrayForAugust. No further details are available at this time.
