During an appearance on ESPN's Highly Questionable, Yelawolf admits to the cast that he's an alcoholic after they asked what Eminem told him about slowing down on drinking. Even though he's honest about it, he doesn't sound like he's trying to stop, rather he's come to terms with his alcoholism.
The Alabama native goes on to talk about how he hates being sober and isn't trying to be a role model to anybody. Watch the video and read some quotes below.
"No one controls my drinking, but me. I’m the only person that can control that. God himself could not control my drinking. I’m admittedly an alcoholic and it’s a problem. I wrote a song about it called “Empty Bottles” on Love Story. You know, I’m not proud of it but it’s in my genes. I do take breaks. I was sober for five months. That was my last sober streak. I’m back drinking again. It is what it is." "I can’t deal with sober. It just sucks. I’m not a role model. I don’t expect people to watch this or parents to watch this and go buy my album because I am a role model. I’m not that guy. I’m just doing me, and if I wanna drink I’m gonna drink. If I wanna party, I’m gonna party. That’s it. Drinking is my vice. When I’m done working, I’m gonna have a drink, that’s what I’m gonna do."
