Eminem Admits He ‘Almost Died’ From Drug Overdose

Eminem almost died.

The iconic MC tells Vibe magazine in its forthcoming issue that during a relapse, he overdosed on pills he acquired from an “acquaintance” and almost became one of music’s greatest casualties.

“My doctor told me those mysterious new pills were methadone, which is used to wean heroin addicts off dope,” he told the mag in its forthcoming “Real Rap” issue.

“Had I known it was methadone, I probably wouldn’t have taken it. But as bad as I was back then, I can’t even say 100 percent for sure. My doctor told me the amount of methadone I’d taken was equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin. Even when they told me I almost died, it didn’t click.”

Em admitted to the publication that he was an addict and through his uncontrolled dependence, he began to identify with his mother, with whom he’s had several public battles over the last decade.

“It’s no secret I had a drug problem,” he said. “If I was to give you a number of Vicodin I would actually take in a day? Anywhere between 10 to 20. Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don’t even know what I was taking.”After suffering a knee injury that required surgery, he was not prescribed painkillers, which led him to search his house for drugs he’d hidden.

It’s Almost here, the official music video “Must Be Nice” by Rapper/Actor Lil Zane — set to release – April 2011 —


Lil Zane Rocking Jamsunglasses on set of 'Must Be Nice" music video



In a recent interview Lil Zane discusses his upcoming music video, music releases and more:

“I’m not sure why I got so much support from the Armenian Community on this project, but it was like they took me under their wings and made this whole thing happen for me.  I love the vibe on this beat. My producer G Flow out of North Hollywood CA. did a great job on this track; I hope the public likes it as much as I do. If not, I guess I can’t make everyone happy.” Lil Zane says.

Q: Zane what’s up with the Glasses you’re wearing in the video?
A: Oh those things were given to me by Celebrity Stylist Joe Exclusive, big shot out to Jamsung eyewear!

Q: When are you coming out with a new album?
A: My album is in the works, I’m a real diversified rapper, I don’t want to sound like one element of hip hop, so on this album I am striving to be as diversified as possible, without losing my identity.

Q: Why haven’t you done a feature with Akon yet?
A: Ask Akon, actually I don’t want to just yet. Kon and I already have a single together from the early 2000’s  that really wasn’t promoted, I’m thinking about remixing that song first before I come out with something new with him.

Q: Zane I saw you on the Yung and Hung over tour with YG and Bobby Brackins, are you working on a project with them? http://www.exposay.com/yg-lil-zane-bobby-brackin-ray-j-t …
A: Those cats are still a bit too new in the game to work with me on anything, just yet; I just wanted to show my man YG and Bobby some Love. They did a really good job that night at the Key Club, I’m very proud of their accomplishments.

Q: Your fans want to know when you’re going to be featured on a global or national tour.
A: I want you to tell my fans, that the more they support me, the quicker they will see me in a town near them.

Mama Kym aka Raptivist Reminds Us…LADIES ARE FIRST

In Breaking News, Celebrity News, EOTM News on March 9, 2011 at 8:52 pm

By: Carla B.


Conscious music may just be making it’s way back to the forefront.

Remember when it was the style to wear clothes that covered your behind and your breast? When the old school female rap artists were more about empowering young women and teaching them to value their self worth? They cared about what their sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers thought when they saw them on a video or heard their music on the radio.

Fast forward to 2011 and you will find that sex and violence have hijacked not just the rap game but music as a whole. Female music artists have gone from classy sexy to soft porn stars and let’s not talk about the “video vixens”, which is enough to make our grandmothers/big mama’s roll over in their grave.

If I had my wish every recording artist would be positive and rap/sing about something productive; verses sex, drugs, violence, money, pimping and spending money on all the material things money and fame can buy.

Its way over due for the conscious female artists to return with a vengeance! It’s time for the void in Hip Hop to be filled with conscious female rappers that remind us that LADIES ARE FIRST.

Mama Kym

It’s time female artists once again rock the mic to inspire little girls to become women. Recording Artist Mama Kym aka Raptivist is back on the scene to do just that. This dynamic recording artist has managed to break the mold and use classy sexy to convey a message of girl power and she refuses to be sold out for  mainstream exposure.

Join the movement of pushing conscious music to the forefront once again, this time with the “Raptivist”

holding the reigns.

In The Beginning — There was Conscious Rap

Los Angeles Based Artist Science Sounds Steps Out In Support of Conscious Rap

Los Angeles, CA — February 23, 2011-

In this era of commercial, hyper sexed, over simplified media that has engulfed the art of hip hop and music as a whole, it’s easy to forget the roots of the genre, a branch that grew from the tree of politically laden spoken word.

Conscious Rap Artist Science Sounds has steadily crafted masterpieces lamenting the contrasts between the ghetto reality and the American dream.

His revolutionary trailblazing has not been overlooked and has helped him stake his claim in bringing conscious rap to the forefront — again.

Conscious rappers like Nas, Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Science Sounds and other similar artists are struggling to create relatable content. While the real problem lies in the fact that the inundation of music with industry-machinated visions of materialism and redundancy has created a “dumbed down” snapshot of our world.

But things are a changing —

The great artists that choose to rap “conscious” are of an intellectual class that far surpasses their counterparts.

Science Sounds has positioned himself as the new breed of conscious hip hop artists.

Check out the new release of his debut single, “Here I am” featuring Father MC and be on the lookout for leaks, videos and stay connected for all upcoming projects.

Science Sounds is an artist currently signed with Johnnie Roscoe Records/Famous Records. For all bookings and media inquiry, contact Carla Barnes at 213-290-3573 or email pr@eotmradio.com. Follow @ScienceSoundz on Twitter.

When Lil Zane accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award he was charming and articulate. He shared some wise advice to artists looking to break into the industry. “Never stop, stay humble, be true to you and make sure you give back to your community, this is key”.
