Eminem: 'My addictions nearly killed me'

Jun 27 2013, 8:28pm CDT | by

Eminem thought he was going to die from his addiction to prescription drugs.

The 'Lose Yourself' rapper went to rehab for treatment for a dependency on medication and considered suicide at his lowest point and Eminem, 40, admitted his drug dependency almost killed him.

Speaking in new documentary, 'How To Make Money Selling Drugs', he said: "When I took my first Vicodin, it was like this feeling of 'Ahh.' Like everything was not only mellow, but [I] didn't feel any pain.

"I don't know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more. People tried to tell me that I had a problem. I would say 'Get that f**king person outta here. I can't believe they said that s**t to me. I'm not out there shooting heroin. I'm not f**king out there putting coke up my nose. I'm not smoking crack."

"Xanax, Valium, tomato, tomatoe, it's same thing ... F**k it, take it."

Speaking about one incident where he was rushed to the emergency room, Eminem - whose real name is Marshall Mathers - said: "Had I got to the hospital about two hours later, I would have died. My organs were shutting down. My liver, kidneys, everything.

"They were gonna have to put me on dialysis. They didn't think I was gonna make it. My bottom was gonna be death."

While the rapper is now clean, he admitted detoxing was a huge struggle.

He said: "Coming off everything, I was literally was up 24 hours a day for three weeks straight," he says. "And I mean, not sleeping, not even nodding off for a f**king minute.

"I had to regain motor skills, I had to regain talking skills. It's been a learning process, I'm growing. I couldn't believe that anybody could be naturally happy without being on something. So I would say to anybody 'It does get better.' "

Public Enemy Play Equivalent Of Shoebox, London

Jul 29 2014 9:28am CDT | Source: Clash Music

Rap pioneers and an audience of 100…There have been dozens, hundreds of great hip-hop artists over the last 40-odd years. But the impact of Public Enemy can’t be overstated. Before the Long Island ensemble, fronted by Chuck D and Flavor Flav, put out ‘Yo! Bum Rush The Show’ in 1987, hip-hop didn’t really ‘do’ albums all that well. Not like this, at least. It made LL Cool J’s ‘Radio’ sound like sing-along Mickey Mouse material. And then ‘It Takes A Nation Of Millions T ...

Space Boogie Boys: Shabazz Palaces

Jul 18 2014 5:40am CDT | Source: Clash Music

Chatting with the hip-hop mavericks…By now you’ve been alive long enough to know not to believe everything that you read. Study the texts on Seattle’s Shabazz Palaces, and the suggestion is that the duo has beamed down from Earth orbit to smuggle future sounds into contemporary hip-hop. Even the act’s label, Sub Pop, implies that the sounds of Shabazz are not of wholly terrestrial, or physically human origin: “A series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared,” it says of th ...

Beyoncé Leads MTV VMA Nominees

Jul 17 2014 1:12pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

Loves, you know how I feel about award shows. Unless it’s the Oscars, I wouldn’t deign to make an appearance. Occasionally, I’ll make an exception for the Golden Globes, Grammys or Emmys – but only if someone sends me a car, only if the gift bag is fantastic and only if I’m seated amongst actual stars like Beyoncé (not with commoners like her agents or lawyers). That said, I do love sitting at home with a ...
