Eminem is currently busy promoting his newest project, “Music To Be Murdered By: Side B,” and the “Lose Yourself” rapper opened up about his previous addiction struggles on Sirius XM’s Shade 48.
The Detroit rap star has revealed that going through drug addiction meant he had to learn how to rap again after losing his lyrical skills.
Like the rhyme schemes didn’t even sound like familiar to me. So I was caught off guard too. I was like, ‘What the f*ck, I said that?’ I said it and I was wrong for saying that. It was f*cking stupid. You know, a lot of times, especially with the ‘Relapse’ record, when I first started learning how to rap again, because of the drug situation that I went through and having to relearn a lot of things, that was one of those things that it was like, ‘Well, if it rhyme, say it.’Eminem
Em was at the height of his drug addiction in 2007 but fought the disease and released his comeback album “Relapse” in 2009. During that time, he recorded the song which featured the controversial line about Chris Brown assaulting Rihanna.
The 46-year-old takes full accountability for rapping about Chris’ brutal assault on Rihanna and apologized for it.
That’s not an excuse, but I’m just saying that there was a phase I was going through with that Relapse record. It was one of those things, I think I just said it ‘cause it rhymed. Looking back now, I should have thought better of it.Eminem
