(Radio.com) As Macklemore and Ryan Lewis gear up to follow their breakthrough release that saw them win four GRAMMY awards and sell more than a million albums, Macklemore is opening up about some of the darker times he has experienced of late.

It is no secret that Macklemore is a recovering addict, as he shared his own story both in concert and in his music. But in a new MTV mini-doc, Macklemore speaks candidly about all aspects of the rise to fame.

The stress associated with fame led the rapper to begin using drugs. But his imminent fatherhood inspired him to recommit his life to sobriety. Check out the video, which details the rapper's rediscovery of his ability to be happy, and how that fueled his new album here.
