Eminem recently opened up about his addiction transformation story on the Sway In The Morning show on his Sirius XM radio shade 45.

Troubled Teen To Rap Sensation
The record producer has many times mentioned his addiction to pills in the album released in 2010, Recovery. It is usual that the songwriter writes about his personal life and communicates with his fans through his songs.
In 2015, Eminem disclosed that he jumped over the hurdles of addiction with the help of ample exercise. He spilled the beans in an interview with Men’s Journal in which he also revealed his drug overdose which happened in the year 2007.
Despite being one of the greatest rappers of all time, Eminem was dependent on drugs that have the coating Vicodin and Valium. The chemical has the power to dig a bigger hole in one’s stomach. The hip-hop star used to manage the situation by eating harder, which is unimaginable for a normal person. The habit finally led him to gain weight up to 230 pounds in 2007.
The songwriter nearly killed himself by taking more than 15 painkillers a day and ended up in a rehabilitation center.
The 2022 Superball was auspicious with the presence and performance of Eminem along with Snoop Dogg, R&B star Mary J. Blige and Dr.Dre. While they delivered a power-pack performance this Sunday, the 49-year-old took a knee.
The rapper would be introduced to a new team including Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, and other talented members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The rap legend left the music industry in 2005 following his battle with himself. It’s epic that Eminem has sold around 30 million albums over the years. But since the success only hits a person who suffers day and night, he ended up in vain and had to crave drugs for existence. It is also evident that money paired with a stressful work environment also leads to drug.
The fans who are impatiently waiting for the star’s comeback are encouraged by the announcement of the completion of his last work, Relapse, the sixth studio CD. The album passes through many of the depressing incidents the rapper went through during his hard time. Some critics still claim that Eminem is still not over drugs. However, Relapse is anticipated to be a hit among the fanciers once it drops.
Eminem is reported to be working hard on his studio in order to come back to the business. Fans are thrilled for the return of their rapper who sang “I know it’s been a minute, but we’re back”, “it’s the return of the Dozen Motherfuckers, let’s go”.
