For the new August/September issue VIBE spoke with Eminem about his recovery from prescription drug abuse and his reaction to 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy’s death:

ON BEING HAUNTED BY DEATH:

Do you think about your own death?
Yeah, I do. A lot. I think about it a lot. I try not to think about it but I do and it creeps me the fu*k out. It creeps me out because they say that if I got to the hospital two hours later then I would be gone. I think about that a lot. When I lay in bed at night is when I think about it the most. It creeps me out man.

ON BRITTANY MURPHY’S PASSING:

What were your thoughts when you heard that your 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy had passed?
It was crazy. It’s crazy. It’s crazy because at one point we were very close and she was a really good person. It’s crazy when you see things not just with her but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood with people in music, with people in acting . . .

. . . famous people.
Famous people. Famous people are overdosing at alarming rates and—that almost sounded like a commercial. Wow.

It sounded like a Sally Struthers commercial. “Please give to this charity.”
Right. But they are. And it’s one of those things man where you’re famous, doctors will kiss your ass because they love the celebrity. “Oh, I can call up Eminem and get him on the phone right now. Oh, hi Marshall, how are you doing? Do you need that [prescription]?” There are doctors that will give you certain things just because of who you are.

Eminem blazed the charts with the strongest Rap debut in two years with his latest album ‘Recovery.’ Eminem dethroned Drake from his high horse by selling 741,000 joints in one week, thus capturing Billboards 200 top spot. Count it 1,2,3,4,5,6!!! This marks 6 times in a row that Slim Shady has had a number one album in his clutches. The album is no slouch please believe. In a time where hip-hop is as relevant as Glen Beck’s opinion on world affairs, so having Em drop this album is a breath of fresh air. Yes, the album leaked two weeks ago but that didn’t hurt his sales for sure. He is back and spitting that witty venom that mad him the dude cats f’d with from the jump. ‘Recovery’ has a few guest-appearances on there from Rihanna, ‘Jail Booty’ –Lil’ Wayne and production by Dr. Dre.
