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.
The New Orleans bred star posted to Instagram to share his condition with his supporters. Alsina sat down with Jada Pinkett-Smith in a few clips and they openly discussed the matter.
August Alsina said that his father and his grandfather passed from serious illnesses according to VIBE. Complex also reminds us that Alsina has been battling health issues publicly for awhile now. After he collapsed at one of his shows in 2014, he ended up having to have eye surgery to save his vision too.
The American Liver Foundation says that liver disease can come in many forms, but can also lead to cirrhosis, cancer, and liver failure.
