American hip-hop artist, who is more known for his single Benediction featuring Rick Ross, August Alsina is getting blind. The 22 year old star who almost died in March due to dehydration and serious cocaine overdose took to his social media account to share the sad news.
August Alsina mentioned that like sight, one should not take the little things of life for granted.
So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right. In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating ihad to do this surgery. This shit is beyond painful & Life be throwin’ a nigxa curve balls but what I’ve gained from it all is priceless… A lot of things that are so natural to us in life (like waking up and being able to see 👀) we can take it for granted. Thank God the OG for allowing me to see.. The good the bad the ugly, I’m just glad to see👀
August Alsina is one of the most accomplished new musicians in the US. His “Testimony Live” US tour sold out. His “Testimony Live” European tour sold out. He won BET Award for Best New Artist. His Testimony album was Billboard Number 1 in April. All these in less than one year on a first year!!!
