MTV News caught up with Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib earlier last month and and he stated that there was no compeition with Kanye West.

Despite all of the rap drama and beef going on right now, 40 says he admires Yeezy and says he changed the game. “I look up to that guy like crazy. I always have and I always will, that’s someone who’s carved out a sound for rap music a couple of times, who has really influenced and changed the game as an individual. It would be crazy to say there’s competition.” He finished off his comments with, “I’m grateful to any and everybody that’s ever influenced me, including Mr. West.”

At least we know that’s one less beef for Drake to deal with…for now.
