Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had chart-topping success with their hits “Thrift Shop” and “Same Love,” but with the success came much sorrow. Things really became hostile when they won two rap Grammys over artists like Kendrick Lamar and Drake.

Behind the scenes of the backlash, Macklemore was silently battling with addiction.

In the new MTV doc Macklemore: Fully Human, the Seattle rapper opens up about his past struggle with addiction and how the birth of his daughter was motivation for him to straighten up.

“I was not at my best when I found out Tricia was pregnant,” he said. “Again, I’m not proud of it…[I thought] I’m not ready to be a father, I can’t even get sober…It was a wake up call that I desperately needed. Like, You’re about to be a dad, dude. Stop doing drugs and lying to people and sneaking around. Do you want to live life or do you want to escape life? That was one of those pivotal turning points. It was a push but it wasn’t the thing that got me sober.”
