Drake Reveals More ‘Nothing Was The Same’ Details, Gets Props From 2 Chainz
The Toronto rapper/singer discussed his third full-length record with Rolling Stone and revealed some more details about the producers and musicians involved. Of course, his go-to producer, Noah "40" Shebib, played a huge role, but Hit-Boy, Boi-1da, Detail, Hudson Mohawke and James Blake were also involved.
Blake recently played the 2013 OVO Fest in Toronto and offered the following regarding his studio time with Drake, "I saw him at a show and told him I had some ideas knocking around, and he invited me to Toronto."
Shebib and Drizzy also teased two of the album's tracks, 'Tuscan Leather' and 'Paris Morton Music II.' The former was described as a "three-stage record" with "one sample flipped three different ways." As for 'Paris Morton Music,' it's apparently exciting for Drake for a rap standpoint as he's "just getting off bars and different flows."
2 Chainz, who is featured on 'Nothing Was The Same,' probably had the most intriguing/hilarious quote in the interview, though, and you can read it below:
"Drake is like my brother, man. Every time we mix it up – this Canadian light-skinned dude and a black-ass trap guy from Atlanta – we have success. His album comes out right after mine. We planned that s--t to f--k up the world."
'Nothing Was The Same' is due out Sept. 24.
