Happy birthday, August Alsina!
Today marks August Alsina's 26th birthday and one of his biggest supporters, Jada Pinkett Smith, has shared a special message in light of the day. If you can remember, August previously paid a visit to Jada's Facebook show Red Table Talk and discussed his past addiction to Percocets and weed after reaching out to the Smith family for help. "I literally had an endless supply of Percs. If you asked my brother, anybody … I’m like, raining Percs. Off my body, off my house. I was literally raining pills like Skittle," he said.
In the post made by Jada today, you can see a video of August explaining how hard it was to break his cycle that was also his father's cycle and his step-father's cycle.
"Happy Birfday @augustalsina a.k.a Young Lionð! I’ve watched you fight for your health ... I’ve watched you fight for your sobriety and I’ve watched you fight for your meaning of life," Jada wrote. "Through it all ... I’ve witnessed the power of one amazzzzing Virgo. I’m so proud of you and I got all the love in the world for you. I’m wishing you the best of everything! Soldier on Young Lion ... soldier on."
