Yelawolf Speaks With Brutal Honesty About His Alcoholism and Why He Will Not Stop Drinking (Video)
Yelawolf was recently a guest on ESPN’s Highly Questionable. The show has yielded several noteworthy Hip-Hop-related moments over the last year, including John Starks’ revelation that Biggie’s “I Got a Story to Tell” was a true story, and ScHoolboy Q discussing his scariest moment as a gang banger. Yelawolf’s appearance also led to some deep and unexpected conversation.
Yelawolf recently spoke about his difficult childhood and his relationship with Eminem, which included a conversation about controlling his drinking. Despite Em’s concern, Yelawolf is adamant that only he can control his drinking, even admitting to struggling with alcohol addiction and referencing his song “Empty Bottles.” While he expressed that he’s not interested in a sober lifestyle, there are resources available for those seeking help, such as Magnolia alcohol and drug rehab to transform themselves into a new version.
