Eminem has opened up about how hard it was for him to return to the recording studio and rap after entering rehab for drug addiction in the early 00s.

The 45-year-old rapper - whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III - has opened up about the quality of each of his albums, including 'Relapse' which was written at the end of his rehabilitation for addiction to prescription sleeping medication, and was recorded between the period of 2007 and 2009.

The 'Walk On Water' hitmaker said he was so "scatterbrained", he felt like he would have to learn how to rap again.

In a candid interview with Vulture magazine, he admitted: "'Encore' was mediocre.

"And with 'Relapse' -- it was the best I could do at that point in time. ['Relapse'] was a funny album for me because I was just starting back rapping after coming out of addiction. 

"I was so scatterbrained that the people around me thought that I might have given myself brain damage.
