Eminem: "I Had To Learn And Rap Again..."
The rapper talks about more of his dark past...
Eminem has recently talked about the difficulty that he found himself in when he used to be addicted to drugs a few years ago.
The Grammy-winning rapper said that he had to learn how to rap again due to the fact that he was always off his face on drugs and he’s learnt a very valuable life lesson.
He told The New York Post: "I had to learn to write and rap again, and I had to do it sober and 100 percent clean. That didn't feel good at first; I mean it in the literal sense. I actually had to learn how to say my lyrics again, how to phrase them; make them flow, how to use force so they sounded like I meant them.
“Rapping wasn't like riding a bike. It was as much physical as mental. I was relearning basic motor skills. I couldn't control my hand shakes. I'd get in the recording booth and tried to rap, and none of it was clever, none was witty and I wasn't saying it right.
He added: “It was four or five months after I'd been clean when I started to get a glimmer of my writing skills back. I don't remember what song I was working on specifically, but I do remember getting feeling back in the music. I realized I wanted to do this again."
