VH1′s Behind The Music has rolled out another bombshell following Nicole Scherzinger‘s revelation that she struggled with bulimia. On the forthcoming episode (airing October 14) time, Gym Class Heroes frontman Travie McCoy talks about the moment he made the decision to kick his drug habit.

After four failed stints in rehab and his 2009 breakup with Katy Perry, the rapper took a look in the mirror and saw that his “face was sunken in” and realized, “If I didn’t do something, I was gonna end up dead.” So the next morning, with his friends around him, McCoy decided to quit cold turkey. Watch the rapper tear up in the preview clip up top.

  1. Blessings and positive thoughts toTravie…May he continue to live life truly free from anything that would cause him to be bound. He is amazingly gifted and his voice can be such a great inspiration to other young people to stay away from drug and alcohol abuse.
