Eminem in 'How to Make Money Selling Drugs': 'My name is Marshall, and I'm an addict' -- VIDEO

Clearly, a man who calls his albums Relapse and Recovery is pretty forthright about his struggle with addiction, but Eminem opens the book even further in the new documentary How to Make Money Selling Drugs.

In a two-and-a-half-minute confessional, the hip-hop megastar explains how he fell into his addiction to prescription painkillers and cheated death. “I don’t know at what point exactly it started to be a problem, I just remember liking it more and more,” he says.

And when he was at his worst, he refused to listen to anyone who tried to stop him — after all, he was just taking legal pills. “People tried to tell me I had a problem. I would say, ‘Get that f—ing person out of here. I can’t believe they said that sh-t to me. They know nothing about my f—ing life. Are they out of their f—ing mind? I’m not out there shooting heroin. I’m not out there putting coke up my nose. I’m not smoking crack.'”
