Eminem Talks About His Break From Music, Proof’s Death, And More

This is a piece on RapBasement.com, a site that I believe Shady Records/Interscope own since they usually have most Eminem and D12 exclusives. With his new book out there and his The Way I Am Jordans available online, I really like the way he’s making it a point of reintroducing himself to the public, even if the exposure was limited. This piece on RapBasement has him giving random sentences about what he’s been up to for the past few years. An excerpt:

Within the last year, I started learning how to not be so angry about things, learning how to count my fucking blessings instead. By doing that, I’ve become a happier person, instead of all this self-loathing I was doing for a while.

The music, I wouldn’t say it’s gotten happier, but it’s definitely more upbeat. I feel like myself again.

Don’t get me wrong, the aggression will still be there.

I don’t know if I’ve fully accepted Proof’s death, but I think I’ve come to terms with it a little bit, knowing how to cope. There was a good two years that I was pretty down in the fucking dumps. I just lay in bed and stared at the fucking ceiling. One day, I didn’t get up until 7:30 that night.
