Eminem just hit a special milestone.

After all, the Grammy winner shared that he has been sober for 16 years.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, posted a photo on Instagram April 20 of his recovery coin with the inscription, “Unity, service and recovery.”

Loved ones couldn’t help but share their excitement about the occasion, with longtime manager Paul Rosenberg writing, “Sweet 16. So proud of you.” Younger brother Nathan Mathers commented, “Greatest Influence and Mentor.”
