Bad Meets Evil


“Marshall is always watching. He watches all my interviews and then he calls me to say what I could have done better and what was good. When you’re that close with somebody you can see things that they can’t necessarily see about themselves. He used to call me and say “You know if you ever feel like you’ve got a problem with the drinking you can talk to me, right?” I haven’t had a drink since September 11, 2012. I am actively pursuing my sobriety through AA meetings and therapy. But it’s not a thing where I just woke up one day and did it cold turkey. I decided that I needed help. I made that call to Marshall in tears, and I’ve been working on my sobriety ever since.” — Royce Da 5'9"
