As much as the duo might be high on life (and Grammy fumes) right now, Macklemore has always been open about his past issues with substance abuse, and in a special , he talks specifically about losing a friend to addiction, and the advice he has for ones who are struggling.
The interview is part of “The Other Side,” an initiative launched by mtvU and The Jed Foundation’s “Half Of Us” campaign to help students deal with prescription drug abuse on college campuses.
