Eminem is regarded as one of the most prominent rappers of all time. The Detroit rapper has a long list of accomplishments behind him. The Rap God recently opened up about his mental health and how rap helps him cope up with his struggles.
During an appearance on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning, Eminem revealed his history of rapping on mental health. While speaking with Sway Calloway, the founder of Shady Records pondered on his openness to confront mental health in his songs. Eminem promoted rap as a kind of therapy for himself and other musicians.
I think that’s one of the great things about rap music is that, you know, you could put so much of your life in it. It’s therapeutic and that’s how it’s always been for me.
Eminem also recently admitted to stealing from black music on his latest single. The most popular white MC in hip-hop is frequently accused of appropriating Black culture. Eminem’s latest drop, “The King & I,” is a collaboration with CeeLo Green.
Eminem even made Ceelo Green work hard for good reason. The song will be used on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic’s soundtrack. Check out the video of Eminem talking about his mental health below.
