Music Producer Timbaland Opens Up On His Drug Addiction And Depression


45 years old American music producer and Hip-Pop Icon, Timothy Zachery "Tim" Mosley famously known as Timbaland, in a new interview opened up on his battle with serious drug addiction and depression.

According to the four-time Grammy award winning songwriter/producer who has worked with Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Missy Elliott and many others, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, his addiction began in his 30s when he started taking pain medications due to nerve issues from an earlier gunshot wound he suffered from as a teen.

Timbaland who is currently in the studio working on a new song including collabos with his long time collaborator Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross and even Ski Mask The Slump God, revealed that he picked himself up three years ago, during the struggle with OxyContin while disclosing that strong words of advice from his longtime collaborator JAY-Z, also helped in a great deal finally overcoming his addiction.

“All I can tell you is that there was a light," he confesses. "I woke up trying to catch my breath, like I was underwater. But through that whole thing I saw life – I saw where I would be if I don’t change, and where I could be if I did…I thought about Michael Jackson. I didn’t want to be old and taking these pills.”

“Music is a gift and curse,” he continues. “Once you’re not popping, it plays with your mind. The pills helped block out the noise—I’d just sleep all day. I remember Jay-Z told me one time, ‘Don’t do no more interviews’—because I was saying crazy shit.”
