In this portion of his chat with Billboard, T.I. commends Eminem for helping him with his own drug addiction, which started off as medication from oral surgery.
“I haven’t had a chance to speak to Em since I’ve been home. I heard that while I was down, he was trying to get in contact with me, but I don’t know if the dots just didn’t connect. [Eminem] overcoming his own adversities, winning the battle against his own demons and continuing to break the mold and re-set the standard of what it means to be the most successful hip-hop artist in the game … I salute that to no end.”
