VIDEO – HAPPY IT DID –
Sept. 8, 2022 – “I remember when I first got sober and all the shit was out of my system, I remember just being, like, really happy and everything was f***ing new to me again,” Eminem said about the album. “It was the first album and the first time that I had fun recording in a long time.”
Relapse was Eminem’s first time in the studio since his 2007 overdose on pills. The rapper almost died due to his addiction to Vicodin and Valium.
“It was like the first time I started having fun with music again, and re-learning how to rap, you remember that whole process,” Eminem added on the SiriusXM podcast. “It took a long time for my brain to start working again.”
