Eminem Helped Which Cities97 Artist Overcome His Childhood Stutter?

Believe it or not, Eminem had a huge influence on Ed Sheeran -- by helping him lose the stutter he had all through childhood.

Ed dropped by the BBC's Desert Island Discs show on Sunday to talk about his all-time faves, and confessed to his old Slim Shady habit. 

He said, "My parents didn't know the content of the album, and I must have been nine when it came out. And when you're nine and someone is saying rude stuff, you wanna learn it. So I learned all of the album back-to-back, and he raps at such a fast pace that my stammer would go when I rapped."

Last year, Ed spoke about his childhood struggles with stuttering at the American Institute for Stuttering Gala.
