“I had a dream that death was near.  I saw myself with a white face.”

Tim Mosley a.k.a. Timbaland’s  Men’s Health article explains, that “in 2011, after receiving a prescription for painkillers following a root canal, Mosley started abusing OxyContin and Percocet.”

Timbaland described what life was like when he was popping pills:  “It put me in a great feeling of not caring, of just being free.  I’m like traveling, doing shows, popping ’em, having fun, just being ignorant.”

After Timbo’s death dream, he realized that he had to get clean for his three children. He started weening himself off pills and going through withdrawal, which he said was “one of the toughest things I’ve been through,” and then walked into a boxing gym with no previous boxing experience, weighing 350 pounds, and began his weight loss journey.
