Eminem Opens Up About Brush with Death

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.”
