In an effort to promote the project, label co-founder Eminemjoined Boogie for a recent interview with Shade 45s Sway In The Morning where he discussed a bevy of topics, including mental health. When asked how rapping about mental health and addiction transformed him, Shady replied, Well, I think thats, thats one of the great things about rap music is that, you know, you could put so much of your life in it. I was just trying to figure out how to expand on that and I kinda got lost. He continued, Its therapeutic and its, you know, thats how its always been for me. But with this album, with this new Boogie album, the, the title, everything is fucking, everythings great. And its like, you know, watching him, watching him just keep getting better and better and better is incredible too. And hes got so much of his life weaved in this album. You know what Im saying? Like, I think that its like, its therapeutic. Eminem has been incredibly vocal about his struggles with substance abuse in the past. Now with 14 years of sobriety under his belt, he doesnt shy away from the topic nor is he afraid to talk about it. In a 2015 interview with Mens Journal, he discussed his six-year addiction to a deadly combination of prescription drugs, including Ambien, Valium and extra-strength Vicodin. Although he attempted to quit in 2005, the murder of his friend Proof sent him spiraling. Eminem wasnt able to stay clean until he nearly died from a methadone overdose in late 2007.
