Eminem hasn't exactly been shy about detailing his past addictions —dude named his last two albums Relapse and Recovery—but in a recently released clip for the documentary How To Make Money Selling Drugs, the rapper reveals just how bad it got.
"Had I have got to the hospital about two hours later, I would have died," admits the rapper. "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."
The film, directed by Matthew Cooke and produced by Bert Marcus Productions, also includes interviews with 50 Cent and Russell Simmons. But it's Em's discussion of how he first got hooked on prescription pills and its extent that will presumably be the film's standout.
"People tried to tell me that I had a problem, I would say, 'Get that f-ckin' person out of here. I can't believe they said that sh-t to me," the rapper continued. "They know nothing about my f-cking life...I remember walking around my house and thinking every single day, 'I'm going to f-cking die."
While Eminem is, according to Dr. Dre, finishing up his new album, he claims in the clip that at his bottom, he had to relearn his motor and talking skills.
Eminem recently released new song "Symphony in H" off DJ Tony Touch’s upcoming project PieceMaker 3: Return of the 50 MCs.
