Eminem’s manager feared the rapper could cause brain damage.
Eminem recently sat down with his manager Paul Rosenberg for an episode of the Paul Pod podcast that was released on Thursday, September 8th.
In an interview, the rap star was candid about her fight against an addiction that nearly caused brain damage.
‘It took a long time for the brain to work again,’ he said.
Rosenberg also noted concerns that Eminem might not survive the 2007 overdose.
He said, ‘I mean, you were literally coming out of your overdose and they had to stabilize you with some drugs. And some of them took a minute to get used to. Let’s just leave it alone.’
Then Rosenberg said, ‘So it’s almost literally learning to rap again. Is that correct? The reason there is no substance in the body is probably because it was made for the first time in several years, right?’
In addition, Slim Shady said Rosenberg was concerned that the rapper would suffer brain damage.
He said, ‘Didn’t you ask the doctors when I first started rap again and sent it to you? “I want to make sure he doesn’t have brain damage.”
‘I thought you had a permanent problem,’ Rosenberg said. Yes, I was definitely worried.’
He also said, ‘I’m so glad you didn’t have brain damage. Again, the lab is permanently unavailable.’
