Timbaland Reveals He Nearly Overdosed on OxyContin

267 ratings | 16184 views
Timbaland is looking for his Thriller. In a revealing new interview with Rolling Stone, the influential producer got candid about his legacy and what he's doing now to help the new wave of creatives find their voice. Timbo also discussed what he describes as a near-death OxyContin overdose, which occurred during some of the most tumultuous years of his life. "I was on drugs, dude," said Timbaland, who started taking pain meds in his 30s due to nerve issue stemming from a gunshot injury he sustained as a teen. "I was on OxyContin." Timbaland said his Oxy use eventually got out of control. Simultaneously, his presence on the charts started to take a dive and his marriage started falling apart. "The pills helped block out the noise," he said. "I'd just sleep all day." At one point, Timbaland remembered, Jay Z suggested he avoid doing interviews because he had started saying "crazy shit."

Timbaland, I feel your pain brother. I've just kicked heroin after relapsing two years ago. Opiates just aren't worth it. I hope you're doing well now brother. And hey, to anyone out there struggling with Opiates/Opioid addiction to any degree — feel free to hit me up. I want to help you like people helped me the first time around. You *DO NOT* need to be self inflicting this hell upon yourselves. Peace folks...and stay safe.

now a days if someone is on xanax most likely theyre on oxys also, its a cocktail mixing bars and oxys is what ppl are doing. fentynal is a strong opiate stronger than oxys but still under same umbrella, the thing is these pain pills aren't being laced its that those pills are now being made with heroin and stamoed with fentynal or oxycodone imprints. pills are smackers ppl overdose becasue they pop a pill wait 10.15 min nd they dnt feel the high yet so they pop another. nd another nd then that fucken high jst smacks u nd hits u hard asf thst the body cant handle nd ppl overdose.. im 1year clean off alprazolam" xanax"nd oxycodone hydrochloride "perks" so yes im saying this from experience. ppl start with prescription pill then go to heroin. any pain killer any opiate is jst the same thing as heroin. same high same feeling same side effects same ADDICTION AND SAME WITHDRAWALS. take pills or lean or anything for that matter everyday for about a month then try to stop cold turkey nd feel those withdrawls. its a living hell. lean.oxys.xanax.adderal any fucken prescription will ruin ur life. i didnt listen to lil peeps music but R.I.P lil peep. nd to everyone out there listening to future nd all theze fucken rappers glorifying drugs learn wtf ur taking nd putting in ur body nd if u gona get high off that shit or any drug then compose urself, get ur shit together cuz mf look so stupid all slump over, nodding offnd shit..grow up mfs

Saw this guy trying to mimic desiigner and the unpredictable, schizophrenic moves he usually does,I should have known then that he was on the same type of drugs..this is what happens when you co-sign with these illiterate rappers and adopt their habits, he's older and should have known better.

It's pretty pathetic when an entire genre of music can't find anything other than drugs to talk about.
Ben Trill (4 months ago)
ay yall, i wanna know wut genre of music do yall think created & is most knwon for Drug use & getting fucked up? and i mean the genre yall think that consists almost purely of that, not just alot of artists or songs in a genre that make songs about and/or getting high on any drug... Let's hear it.. should be interesting
Ben Trill (4 months ago)
Tha Switch FACTZ!!! But we dont know shit bout music right?MotorCityPhoenix313 seems to think idk shit when it comes to what genre of music created or is mostly known specifically for drug use. Answer is EDM PERIOD
Tha Switch (4 months ago)
It’s literally edm that started it all..first off..disco started drug use (disco is a form of edm) it wasn’t popular in the community until tech house came in and started introducing drugs into the community and acid house is really where it left off the reason they call it acid house is because they used to get fucked up on the dance floor on acid..it isn’t rap that started it sure they talk about it but It was originally edm

This is just a reflection of society. Americans have been on pills for a while now. I am 27 and have lost two friends to pill addiction. One of them used pills to deal with severe mental illness. Our society has become physically and mentally ill. We have lost our morals. Being a huge piece of shit like Boonk Gang or Lil Pump is the most respected thing with the youth. The bigger of a piece of walking feces you are the more respect you get.
J C (4 months ago)
Justin Wil great comment. Sorry for your loss. I am an addict clean off pills since 3/16 and I have friends that progressed to heroin cuz they can't afford pills. Now they have bootleg pills that kill just like heroin. Hell, even pharmacy pills kill trying to get high when you have a tolerance. Look at Eminem, methadone's the worst. I thank God he didn't die. Yeah, mumble rap sucks. I can't stand Migos cooking up dope in a crockpot. Fucking crackpots.

This is what happens when artists realize that what is truly behind their isn't their talented, that's the music industry and radio play that make their music become relevant. The truth hurts. Talent plays just a little part in the equation. Money and Access are the KEY
