Today in terrifying news: R&B up-and-comer and member of XXL's 2014 Freshman Class August Alsina was in a coma for three days. Earlier this week, the singer fainted onstage at New York City's Irving Plaza. The cause of Alsina's fall remain unknown.

Alsina was rushed to the hospital where he stayed for the remainder of the week, eventually going into a coma for three days. 

August broke the news via Instagram, posting a picture with the following caption: "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. -Yung" 

Terrifying stuff! The musician has a point: You have to take care of yourself. Since the incident, August has cancelled a concert in Cincinnati. He has a few dates lined up, including performances in Kansas City and Indianapolis, so here's hoping he's on the mend soon.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Alsina!
