Read the rapper's full statement following his collapse at a gig earlier this week.

August Alsina has revealed that he has been in a coma for the last three days after collapsing on stage at a gig in New York earlier this week.

Alsina's condition had not been made public, apart from tweets of support from singers including Chris Brown.

But the rapper has now posted a picture of himself in hospital and a lengthy statement explaining more about his condition.

He said:

"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."

Alsina's collapse came in the same way that the rapper released his new music video 'No Love (Remix)' featuring Nicki Minaj.
