Eminem has taken to Twitter and Instagram to celebrate being sober for a decade, after overdosing in 2007.

The 'Kill You' rapper famously struggled with drugs and alcohol abuse and boasted about it in some of his early lyrics.

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, was hospitalised after overdosing on methadone and has said he was taking up to 60 Valium and 30 Vicodin pills a day before entering rehab.

That's now all in his past.

"Celebrated my 10 years yesterday," he stated with a photo of him holding up a special sobriety coin.

The coin features the Roman numeral X - for 10 years - in the middle, along with the words "service," "unity" and "recovery".

Fans were quick to congratulate Eminem on Twitter and Instagram.

Eminem has just featured alongside Beyonce as a headline act at this year's Coachella festival.
