A Grammy-winning artist joined President Obama in his weekly address.
Rapper Macklemore talked about his struggle with prescription drug abuse and losing his friend to an overdose.
"Addiction is like any other disease — it doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care what color you are, whether you're a guy or a girl, rich or poor. ... This doesn't just happen to other people's kids or in some other neighborhood. It can happen to any of us," the rapper said.
