Eminem documented his drug addiction on last year’s Relapse. Now clean and promoting his latest album Recovery, the rapper spoke to “Showbiz Tonight’s” Brooke Anderson about his near-death experience.
“It took me a while to actually admit that I had a problem,” said Em. “In the hip-hop world that I live in, I think that it could be mistaken for weakness, and the last thing that you wanna do in hip-hop is admit that you’re weak. If I didn’t admit that I was weak with this certain thing, I was gonna die.”
Just how close did he come? “Probably a couple hours away from death.”
