Timbaland was famous all over the industry for his insane beats and music records. As of recent, he hasn’t been much active on the music front. So, what really happened to him and what has he been up to?
So, Timbaland was producing amazing music at one point of time. He had collaborated and released tracks with Keri Hilson, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado etc. He still does produce videos on his YouTube channel which has more than a million subscribers, however he has been more or less lowkey for a long time now.
Some of his later productions are Somebody Else Will(featuring Missy Elliott) and Grab the Wheel(featuring 6lack) which were released in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Timbaland has had health issues in the past. He learnt that he had prediabetes and then went on to drop 130 pounds after he had a nightmare in which he saw that death was near.
He had been struggling with issues related to Ox*Contin and Perc*cet which were prescribed to him for root canal pain. Apparently, he developed an addic*ion to them and but now has reportedly gotten over it and left the p*lls for good.
He was also dealing with a divorce and after getting through it, he decided to focus on his health for the first time in years. He says that his kids, God and his girl helped him get through the addic*ion.
One of the toughest things I’ve been through. The only things that got me through it were my kids, my girl, the help of God keeping my mind still.Timbaland on overcoming addic*ion
It is great that he is focusing on his health and got his habits under control. He needed to take time off to look after himself and that explains why he has been off the scene for a long time. He is financially very well off so, he doesn’t have to worry about that aspect atleast. It seems that he is doing great in life.
