August Alsina Reveals Battle With Liver Disease

Remember the mysterious “dis-ease” that August Alsina alluded to in a cryptic instagram post?

It seems that the crooner is gearing up to let his fans and supporters in on exactly what problems he’s been facing that have had him off the scene for a while.

August posted a teaser of a conversation between himself and his good friend Jada Pinkett-Smith, revealing that depression has run in his family for years and has been a struggle of his as well. He also reveals that he’s been fighting some form of liver disease that basically has him feeling ill at all times.

He also posted the video to his Instagram account with this message:

Sat down with my favorite person on planet earth to have one of the most HEALING conversations.
I hope it’s as healing for you as it was for us. I pray that you not only hear me but you FEEL me.
This shall soon come. #DRUGS

Please excuse my defense mechanism in this clip.
I’m sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with my fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family.
My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. 😞😒 but they were FIGHTERS & that’s all that matters. 💪🏽✨✨✨
Just ride with me is all I ask.

We’re eager to hear this full interview! Jada says the convo actually helped her work through some issues she still had lingering from her friendship with Tupac…so it seems that these two got pretty deep.

Hopefully August is on the path to getting better. Are you looking forward to hearing more about all of this?
