Looking back at the highs and lows of his personal and professional life, Timbaland tells the outlet, "I had to get whipped, because I didn't appreciate anything."
Timbaland's addiction to pills started back in 2011, in the years to follow, the artist went through a divorce with his wife and faced money troubles.
"[The painkillers] put me in a great feeling of not caring, of just being free," Timbaland tells the outlet. "I'm like traveling, doing shows, popping 'em, having fun, just being ignorant."
