Eminem Talks About His 2007 Overdose

According to Page Six, he asked daughter Hailie Jade Mathers to block her ears while talking about his 2007 addiction problem. “I realize what an honor it is right now to be here up here tonight, and what a privilege it is to do the music that I love,” he began.

Music basically saved my life … I’ll keep this as painless as possible. I’m f–king stuttering and s–t“, the ‘8 Mile‘ rapper said. “I’m probably not supposed to actually be here tonight because of a couple of reasons.”

I almost died from an overdose in 2007, which kind of sucked,” he continued and addressed his 26-year-old daughter.

The camera then panned at his daughter who was shaking her head. “Hold on, I lost my motherf*****g spot. Paul, did I say, I said drugs were delicious, right?“, he chirped.

And finally, I had to really fight my way through man to try and break through in this music, and I’m so honored and I’m so grateful that I’m even able to be up here doing hip-hip music, man, because I love it so much.” he added.

He was inducted by his longtime collaborator, Dr. Dre, at the ceremony held in Los Angeles. Lionel Richie, Carlie Simon, and Dolly Parton were also inducted in the same.
