The Fader har fået lov til at interviewe Noah ’40′ Shebib, hvor der bl.a. bliver informeret om 3-laps ministeren gæster på Drakes kommende album “Take Care”. Synes alle Drake fans burde sætte sig og læse dette interview. Get well, Noah!
Back in the control room, there’s a pillowy mid-tempo beat on loop, with muffled drum sounds and a whale-like synth bassline that Shebib is improvising on a small keyboard. It’s a two-track instrumental from December 2009, which Drake had asked Shebib to try to find. The night before, Drake received a call from Andre 3000, who said he wanted to get on the rapper’s next LP—and, specifically, on a beat made by 40. The original name of the instrumental was “Good Enough for the Both of Us.”
