Yelawolf Admits to Being An Alcoholic, Discusses Struggling With Sobriety

Yelawolf was a guest on ESPN’s Highly Questionable and during his interview with the crew, his drinking problems came up and admitted to being an alcoholic. This is a must watch interview, but you can read an excerpt 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.
