Eminem has been sober for over a decade. The rapper, 46, shared his milestone on social media Saturday, posting a photo of the medallion he received for being 11 years sober. The medallion is stamped with the Roman numeral for eleven, “XI,” and the words “Unity,” “Service” and “Recovery.” “11 years – still not afraid,” Eminem captioned the photo. Last year, the rapper, who was born Marshall Mathers, also acknowledged the anniversary of his sobriety, sharing a photo to Instagram in between his headlining sets at Coachella. Eminem previously revealed he had a near-death experience from an accidental overdose back in 2007 after his addiction got so bad that he was taking up to 20 pills a day.. The star opened up about his near-fatal overdose on Revival, his ninth studio album that was released in December 2017.
