Eminem said:

What I was basically talking about [was] with the time period that I was away, I was kind of watching what was going on in the game and it was like anything that was hot at that moment or anybody who was really killing s**t at that moment, I felt so bad about myself and the music that I was creating, that I felt like I started to turn into a hater. And it wasn’t just singling Kanye and Wayne out at that time period, I mean they were the one’s who were the killing it the most to me, and it hurt. I’d pop the CD in and be like, “F**k man, I’m not doing this no more.” I felt like I came very close to like, for me it would have been career suicide because I felt like I should make a song just dissing everybody who’s doing in it the game right now.

Em also talked about his past addiction to drugs, his fear that he couldn’t make music without being high, and what he would do if stopped doing music.
