OVO’s Noah “40” Shebib Clears The Air About Kanye West’s Credit On Drake’s “Two Birds, One Stone”
Hip hop fans across the Twittersphere went wild with outrage when Drake dropped his controversial single “Two Birds, One Stone” off his upcoming More Life album. After listening to one of four new singles he recently dropped on OVO Sound Radio, the Internet spewed hate towards Drake for possibly dissing Pusha T or they shamed him for firing shots about Kid Cudi and his struggle with depression. Recently, a bizarre plot twist blew fans’ minds away once the single hit Tidal, Apple Music and other streaming services. The song credits reveal that Kanye West is listed as a co-producer and co-writer.
‘Ye couldn’t have intentionally fueled the fire that burned the president of G.O.O.D Music and former label mate who’s clearly recovering from his own personal demons. Thankfully, Genius’ Rob Markman got the chance to get a formal explanation from the main producer of the record in question. In a recent interview, Noah “40” Shebib explained that him and Kayne made the record together, but it doesn’t seem like there was much malicious intent behind closed doors.
“I made it from some drums he had given me. Not quite the elaborate story the world is looking for,” 40 told Genius.
The story doesn’t answer any other burning questions like who exactly Drake was addressing on the record or when Drake and Kanye’s alleged joint album is coming. However, in the days after Drake’s disruptive yet fire single hit the ‘Net, Yeezy has given praise to Kid Cudi and wished him well during his Saint Pablo tour.
