Drake Producer Noah '40' Shebib Clears Up Kanye West's Role on 'Two Birds, One Stone' Song
Drake caused controversy with his newest song "Two Birds, One Stone" off his forthcoming project More Life after a few lines from the song seemed to be jabs at Kid Cudi and Pusha T. After TIDAL revealed that Kanye West is a composer and producer behind the song, the controversy heightened, prompting Genius to reach out to Drake's right-hand producer Noah "40" Shebib to lay the rumors to rest.
Noah tells Genius that he and Kanye simply collaborated on the track's production, nothing more. "I made it from some drums he had given me," he continues. "Not quite the elaborate story the world is looking for.”
Kanye's connection to the song is notable because Kid Cudi was once a G.O.O.D. Music artist and Pusha T is president of West's G.O.O.D. label.
Drake has yet to address the disses on the track, but it didn't take long for Cudi -- who revealed to fans that he's seeking treatment for suicidal thoughts -- to respond. The "Surfin" rapper tweeted at the Toronto native, "@Drake Say it to face, pussy. You think it's a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I'll be out soon. Promise."
A source told Genius, "When someone contributes to a song as a producer/musician they are considered a writer, as he is alongside Noah Shebib and the other musicians on the song.”
