Noah Shebib, well known to music fans as producer 40, is celebrating his 34th birthday today. 40 is well-known for his work with Drake, as he’s produced several songs for his albums including Take Care, Thank Me Later and Views.
40’s sound is pretty recognizable when he uses his production prowess to make hits for other artists as well. His style for many of his productions is a bit more melancholic and atmospheric, which is not typical of the sound people have come to expect from hip-hop. However, the formula is working, as 40 has produced several tracks that hit number one on the Billboard R&B/ Hip-Hop Charts.
