The countdown is on as 28 days remain until the long-awaited Nothing Was the Same album from Drake. Details on the September 24 release are slowly coming out, and in a recent interview with Rolling Stone both Drake and producer Noah “40” Shebib give some insight on two records. Along with previously mentioned features from Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne, the two describe the songs “Tuscan Leather” and the sequel to “Paris Morton Music,” Drake’s own solo remix to Rick Ross’ Teflon Don single in 2010.

Drake, meanwhile, cites the standout track “Paris Morton Music II” as the clearest proof that he’s stepped up his game. “That track excites me from a rap standpoint, just getting off bars and different flows,” he says. “I played it for J. Cole, on some rap buddy-buddy shit, and he was like, ‘Damn!’”

Below, Noah “40” Shebib speaks on the Whitney Houston-sampled “Tuscan Leather”……

Noah “40” Shebib on “Tuscan Leather”:

Of bombastic album opener “Tuscan Leather,” 40 says, “It’s a three-staged record – one sample flipped three different ways, with a verse over each beat.”
