Eminem is opening up about a drug overdose that nearly cost him his life years ago.
On a new episode of Paul Rosenberg’s Paul Pod” podcast, Eminem and his manager recall the 2007 methadone overdose … and the effects it had on his thinking cap.
Paul remembers asking the doctors whether there would be brain damage when the rapper was in critical condition in the hospital. The two brought the terrifying moment around to Eminem’s 1999 track “Brain Damage.”He needed several harsh medications to be stabilized and ultimately be healthy again.In the song “Deja Vu” from his 2009 album “Relapse,” Eminem rapped in detail about the incident and how he tried to hide his addiction.“Okay, so now ya see the reason how come he, Has taken four years to just put out an album, B/See, me and you, we almost had the same outcome, Heath,” Slim Shady spit, referencing Heath Ledger’s tragic 2008 overdose death, “Cause that Christmas, you know the whole pneumonia thing?/It was bologna, was it the methadone, ya think?”Dr. Dre recently opened up about his brush with death, revealing his 2021 brain aneurysm at the same time that nearly took him out as well. Both artists are in good and working on new music.
Both Eminem and Dre have been seen in and out of studios with Snoop Dogg recently following their Emmy-winning Super Bowl performance in February.
Dre and Snoop have a joint album coming together … and Slim Shady could be next!
