During a recent interview, Macklemore revealed that the real reason he’s been M.I.A. in the music industry is because he relapsed and went back to drinking and doing drugs because he could not handle the pressures and responsibilities of being famous.

“I held it together for a while,” he said, adding, “But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren’t sleeping – doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country.”

Macklemore revealed that his drugs of choice were sleeping pills and marijuana. But despite his fallback, Macklemore says he has now made a comeback and is taking steps towards recovery once again. 

We wish Macklemore all the best and can’t wait to hear more music from him in the future!
