Drug addiction nearly killed me: Eminem

Jun 28 2013, 4:13am CDT | by

Los Angeles, June 28 (IANS) Rapper Eminem once thought he was going to die because of his addiction to prescription drugs. He said that his dependency on drugs almost killed him.

Los Angeles, June 28 — Rapper Eminem once thought he was going to die because of his addiction to prescription drugs. He said that his dependency on drugs almost killed him.

The "Lose Yourself" rapper also admitted that he went to rehab for treatment and is happy that he is no more dependent on drugs, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"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," said Eminem in new documentary "How To Make Money Selling Drugs".

"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 ******* person outta here. I can't believe they said that **** to me. I'm not out there shooting heroin. I'm not ****** out there putting coke up my nose. I'm not smoking crack'." he said.

"Xanax, Valium, tomato, tomatoe, it's same thing ... **** it, take it," he added.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, also mentioned one incident where he was rushed to the hospital.

"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," he said.

The 40-year-old insisted that detoxing was a huge struggle.

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

He added: "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'."

2012 Lacoste L!ve Concert Series: My Morning Jacket With Shabazz Palaces
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 ...

Jay Z In Concert - Cleveland, OH
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 bottle o ...
