Eminem Covers Complex


For their Jan/Feb issue, Complex E-I-C Noah Callahan-Bever sits down with Marshall and talks , his comeback album, drugs, Relapse 2 and streaming porn.

Here’s a snippet:

When the details of Michael Jackson’s death came to light, did you see any parallels?

Eminem: Oh, 100 percent. When you read things about Michael Jackson it’s hard to decipher what the fuck is true, but there’s the story of how he woke up at whatever time and he needed something to go back to sleep because he had this or that and it didn’t work. That’s exactly what used to happen to me: I would take a couple of pills and I would be up an hour later and I’d want more. Then I’d take more and that would be enough to maybe get me back to sleep for two more hours. Then I’d be wide awake again. So I definitely can relate, and it’s a shame if he didn’t have anybody there to just say, “Michael, you’re an addict, you need help.” It’s one of the pitfalls of fame. I could just say, “Yo, I need this and this and this,” and they’re going to give me whatever I want because—

—because you’re Eminem.

Eminem: Exactly, it’s fucked up. The worst thing that could have happened to me as an addict was having money.

    fine to medium sandpaper, brush over Timbs in one direction to remove scuffs and restore color, used a coarser grade sandpaper on the gum soles to restore factory type colors.

    After sandpapering, use a tooth brush or fine ( I used the same brush I use for my 360 waves) to brush out the loose and dirty fibers and to also restore luster to your shit.
