Macklemore reveals he was ‘about to die’ before going to rehab

There’s no doubt in Macklemore’s mind that rehab saved his life. “If it wasn’t for my pops having the 10 or 12 [thousand dollars] that it was when I first went to treatment and [his ability] to spend that on me, I’d be f***ing dead,” the rapper told Talib Kweli on Thursday’s episode of Kweli’s podcast, People’s Party.
