Eminem sits down with CNN to speak on facing his drug addiction demons.
“It took me awhile to admit I actually did have a problem,” the musician said. “In the hip-hop world that I live in, it can be mistaken for weakness and the last thing you want to do in hip-hop is admit that you’re weak. But if I didn’t admit I was weak with this certain thing I was going to die.”
When asked how close he was to death, the artist responded that he “was certainly a couple of hours away from death,” adding that he “overdosed and almost died.”
The full interview can be seen on Showbiz Tonight this Tuesday at 5PM EST on HLN.
