Who I Identify With

I have said on numerous occasions that Eminem has written the soundtrack to my life.  Tupac Shakur will always be my favorite rapper but Eminem is in my top 3 and partly because his content has always resonated with me; from his drug use to his relapse and into recovery.

I am including a couple interviews about recovery, from both Eminem and one of his best friends / fellow emcee, Royce Da 5’9″

The more celebrities that stand up against addiction, the less of a stigma that this disease of the mind will carry.  I applaud A-List celebrities, Public Figures, and Professional Athletes that recognize that they have a problem and recover from it.  In the process, they will help inspire the people that look up to them or are fans of them.

Eminem was also a big influence for me in order to work up the courage to write my book, Intimate Recovery.  Watch the videos below for what I can only hope will be an inspiration to some and an understanding to others.
