Noah ’40′ Shebib Talks Drake’s ‘Nothing Was The Same’ And Aaliyah Posthumous Album
Drake is currently on the new winter cover of VIBE and they have also snagged an interview with his right hand man/producer, Noah ’40′ Shebib.
It is rare that we get interview from 40, so they are always a treat! In this exclusive interview with VIBE, 40 dishes on producing for ‘Nothing Was The Same’, working with Nas and Sade, Cam’ron, the status of the Aaliyah posthumous album, and more. Catch the interview below.
The scene inside Ontario, Canada’s Metalworks Studios looks like a indoor camp site. There are propped-up tents everywhere. Inside, air mattresses wear warm sheets and comforters while iPads serve as mini TVs. Instead of Porta Potties, there’s a washroom with a no-entry sign on the door—its shower reserved for guests of October’s Very Own. The release of Drake’s Nothing Was The Same is two months away so it’s officially crunch time, which means no one is going home. Noah “40” Shebib, the Quincy to Drake’s MJ, is orchestrating his own circle of Hit Men, from in-house talent like Majid Jordan, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nineteen85 to extended family like Boi-1da and Detail, to put the finishing lacquer on Drake’s strongest body of work yet.
