Ed Sheeran Says Eminem ‘Cured’ His Childhood Stutter Which He Developed After Traumatising Incident

Ed Sheeran, an English artist, has discussed how Eminem’s music helped him overcome his childhood stammer.

The 32-year-old singer claims that a traumatic event left him with a speech impairment, and the rapper’s Slim Shady record was instrumental in helping him regain his voice.

Ed claimed that after doctors once neglected to numb his face while lasering out a blemish next to his eye, he started having trouble speaking. When he was nine, his uncle, who had originally exposed him to rapping, got him Eminem’s CD, which was important in eradicating his stutter.

‘I was going through all sorts of speech therapy,’ Ed said. ‘When I was 9, my uncle bought me The Marshall Mathers LP. He just said to my dad, “This guy’s the next Bob Dylan”.

‘My dad didn’t really clock it, he’s just like, “OK, Edward’s going to go and listen to that”.

‘By learning that record and rapping it back to back to back to back, it cured my stutter,’ he told the host.

Ed and the rapper became friends after the rapper gained prominence with the song “A-Team,” and the two have since worked together on three songs.

‘I think it’s different with Eminem because he is quite reclusive, doesn’t see or meet that many people,’ he said.

‘I’ve known him now six years and we’ve done three songs together, I’ve played with him twice on stage. He’s another person I really relate to, as he lives in his hometown still and has his ecosystem around him.’

Also in 2020, Ed recalled a moment when his song Stan was played during Eminem’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

When the artist was asked whether he could perform in the US, he was in the middle of recording a music video.

He said: ‘I can’t say no. I can’t. So, I got a plane straight after my music video, flew there for the song, and then that night flew back. It was really worth it.’
