All this bass today, we can thank Jamaica for that. Literally made me who I am thousands of miles away in a cold city in Canada called Toronto. The vibes, the feelings, the cadence the timing, the rawness, the meaning the influence the guidance and the politics!!!! Rasss the ting gave me Gaj u know! There’s no where as real. Literally made me who I am thousands of miles away in a cold city in Canada called Toronto. One of my favourite places on earth, no question. BASS! One of my favourite places on earth, no question. “Thank you Jamaica you have given me so much,” Noah “40” Shebib wrote. A post shared by Noah Shebib (@ovo40) on Aug 6, 2017 at 8:49am PDT DANCEHALL?! ???????????? These are real tangible influences in my life and my music and who I am as a man in my heart. Gadget!!! The man who makes all our SOUNDS HEAVY! These are real tangible influences in my life and my music and who I am as a man in my heart. As part of Jamaica’s 55th celebration, the producer thanked the island for its influential culture. There's no where as real. DANCEHALL?! Gave us Sly, Robby, Beres, Peter, Bob, like what?! The vibes, the feelings, the cadence the timing, the rawness, the meaning the influence the guidance and the politics!!!! My brothers, my best friend of 28 years, his brother who is also like my brother cause I don't have a real one, my other mother, my favourite food (next to Lebanese obviously). 40, who is of Lebanese/Canadian descent, grew up on reggae/dancehall music and that has heavily influenced his work over the years as seen in a lot of Drake’s biggest records like “One Dance” and “Controlla.” In fact, the entire Views album was built on a dancehall foundation. “My brothers, my best friend of 28 years, his brother who is also like my brother cause I don’t have a real one, my other mother, my favourite food (next to Lebanese obviously). The man who makes all our SOUNDS HEAVY! Gave us Sly, Robby, Beres, Peter, Bob, like what?! BASS! If that’s not a testament to the power and influence of that culture then I don’t know what is. Thank you Jamaica you have given me so much. Rasss the ting gave me Gaj u know! Blessings on your Independence day and guidance and protection forever!!! Gadget!!! The coffee ?, the culture, the dance, the talks and of course the sound. The coffee, the culture, the dance, the talks and of course the sound. Jamaican celebrated it’s 55th Independence Day on August 6th and Drake‘s main producer and business partner Noah “40” Shebib praises the island’s dancehall culture. All this bass today, we can thank Jamaica for that. My mentor and teacher. My mentor and teacher. If that's not a testament to the power and influence of that culture then I don't know what is. Blessings on your Independence day and guidance and protection forever.”
Drake himself is also a huge fan of dancehall music and is close friends with Popcaan who he also signed to OVO Records. ?????
