(AllHipHop News) While stoners all across the States are celebrated 4/20 with a joint, Eminem is celebrating his sobriety.
Coincidentally, April 20th, 2019 marked 11 years of being clean from drugs and alcohol — something Em should be incredibly proud of.
Sharing to his 25.3M followers on Instagram, Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers posted a picture of his recovery medallion, stamped with the Roman numerals XI.
The caption reads, “11 years – still not afraid.”
The gold and blue coin is a token to the traditional practices of Alcoholics Anonymous, used to commemorate milestones in an addict’s journey.
The “Slim Shady” rapper has been open about his addiction to pills, including an accident where he overdosed while self-medicating.
He attributes a lot his sobriety to running and getting back in shape.
