Kanye Mad At 40 For “Borrowing” Sound

Rae and Ghost aren’t the only ones that don’t like a shark biter. Drake’s producer, Noah “40” Shebib tells VIBE in the Aug/Sept. issue that Ye cursed him out for “borrowing” his sound.

“I can’t even be mad at him,” says 40 [short for working 40 Days and 40 Nights…Noah’s ark, get it?) “Because the last CD I listened to before I started working on So Far Gone was 808s & Heartbreak.”

Ah, that explains it. But Yeezy doesn’t have to worry about 40 stepping on his toes. He’s only interested in working with two artists.

“At this point in time, the only rappers I have any interest in working with outside of Drake are Wayne and Jay,” 40 says flatly. “I think Drake has been so instrumental in creating that sound that I have a commitment to him. If he doesn’t want me to give it away, I won’t.”

    I mean, Kanye’s production on 808’s was pretty much a genre all its own (and also he’s just, in general, been the most pervasively influential rapper/producer of the past decade.) so it’s only natural that people would splinter off from it. I really enjoy 40’s production. So yeah, Kanye made it, 40 took it, Kanye cursed him out for it, and now everyone can keep making fantastic music.

  • Nkozi

    That’s it?!? No quotes, no nothing??? C’mon son!

  • yepANDnope

    meh. Imitation is the best form of flattery or something like that?

    Kanye’s ego getting in his own way again.

    How can you get mad at someone for “borrowing” when the MAJOR PART of your career is based on sampling and borrowing? Everyone remember the “Cheers to the Roc” joint at the end of “College Dropout” where he blatantly describes how his whole “borrowing” from Dre was INSTRUMENTAL (see what i did there) in sparking his success.

    I love you Ye, but PLEEEAASE pull your head out of your own ass, before you make a mistake that no one will be able to forgive you for.

  • crack yo girls jawbone

    wow… Kanye doesn’t want a nigga stealing his spotlight.. hmmmm.. VMAs ring a bell???? get the fuck outta here nigga!!!!!

    Everybody borrow from everybody.. damn Ye’s signature sound comes from using soul samples.. for the dummies to follow..

    SAMPLES=OTHER PEOPLES MUSIC so is he STEALING THEIR SOUND too???

    NO HONOR AMONG THIEVES I GUESS.. lol

    There’s. Certain magic about Kanyes TRUE production I.e. Diamonds, Through the wire, gone, Overnight celebrity, stronger, good life, say you will etc. It’s too magnificent to defy. So ofcourse you’d want to imitate it. Thing is that’s why kanyes upset, you can’t! Ittl just hurt you in the long run. Plus he feels alil
    threatened cuz he doesn’t know if he still has that anymore. I mean Power is dope but let’s be real it was an S1 beat that kanye flipped. The chants and guitar make
    that track.

  • itsawrizzie2010sheeeeiiiitt

    why not curse drake out instead of 40 kanye where ya balls at

  • http://rapradar.com CantGetRight

    Last week,kanye called Swizz the best rap producer of all time after listening to Drake’s “fancy”. Im guessing kanye made that statement after listening to the 2nd part of that beat(the best part of that weak song) and he thought Swizz made the whole track. But 40 actually did that 2nd part. So shouldnt Ye be giving some type of props to this 40 dude now? lol

  • flawda

    LOL @ imitation being the best form of flatery

    Biting is forbidden in hiphop, cues Missy and Timbalands “beat biters”. Have some damn creativity and stop jacking the next man shit, and mf wonder why everything on the radio and tv sound alike.

  • HOOD

    tell Kanye to go FUCK HIMSELF….. FUCK 40 TOO FAGGOT ASS NIGGAZ

  • RyanM15

    Ayo Horus i know you wacking off to him now bruhbruh

  • Can

    uh, sampling a record is not the same thing as stealing other people’s music. people who sample have distinct styles- like Dilla flipping a sample and Kanye flipping a sample are completely different. it’s still its own distinct form of expression, kanye used those samples to make his own style. 40 copping ye’s (non-soul loop) production style is different from ye using some drums to make a new style.

    but again, who cares. kanye checked him, he didn’t have someone beat him up or call him out in public. it was a private discussion (which we do;ot even really know the contents of) 40 decided to make public.

  • flawda

    Kanye is a great artist too, but he is a average ass rapper. Yall should be ashamed of yourself to put him in the same category as legit mcs, who can outrhyme and outflow is ass 99 out of a 100 times.

  • Yerp!

    @cantgetitright
    all 40 did was crossfade the beat. Everything but the drums had there ‘Highs’ and ‘Mids’ lowered. Producers know what I’m talking about. 40s signature is to just mute the beat and add reverb and echo his shit is saucy. Boi 1nda is the true beat maker. 40 will need to reinvent himself soon or he will saturate his sound. Although it worked for Swizzy cuz all his early shit sounded the same lol.

  • killacrack

    Rap is based off of stealing, How can you get mad for doing what HIP HOP is based off of. Sorry i do agree that KAYNE is GREAT — but 808 didnt even listen to it. Why would i support a R&B album with a nigg@ that cant sing. SORRY but for real Dont pass off a R&B album and say its rap to me. Kayne i once thought of as a rap God but that POWER joint & the track with OFFICER ROSS LIVE FAST DIE YOUNG — WERE GARBAGE!

  • Yerp!

    @flawda
    shut yo a** up^ lol. In this day in age it’s not about OUTFLOWING or OUTRHYMING it’s the subject matter the lyrics the EMOTION.
    If that was the case lil Wayne would be on the same level as Big Daddy Kane and Rakim cuz he can flow and rhyme with the best of em but HE AINT TALKIN BOUT SHIT. And they never progress. Kanye has taken the game to a whole mother level. Everytime he has dropped a record last decade THE WHOLE MUSIC INDUSTRY SHIFTED to HIS style.
    College Dropout era-2 years NOTHIN BUT SOUL production and records from every artist
    Late Registration era-Same Except on steroids with orchestral and modern implementations
    Graduation era- 3 years of ELECTRONICA And 80s influences with a progressive more custom sound
    808s&Heartbreak era- overlapped by Graduation era but it ALSO CREATED A GENRE in ITSELF!

    Production and Lyrically Together Kanye is unmatched when it comes to just Music.
    Dude is THE true definition of an artist.
    Style, Production, Lyrics, Emotion, Influence. Dude is incredible.

  • crack yo girls jawbone

    yerp is a bitch… damn you dick ridin Kanye more then Amber.. how you figure that LR was historically important?? nigga you drinkin the kool aid big time.. and Graduation was trash.. there was more filler on that album then you get in a twinkie nigga.. and the nigga used auto tune.. which T-PAIN popularized again.. for the whole album biting off that niggaz plate.

    Yall are to damn emotional about this dude you can’t see straight.. he a dope producer but thats it.. he ain’t Moses.. nigga ain’t even Dre.. Be real.. he’s albums have consistently went down.. College Dropout was the illest.. the next.. alittle less.. the next.. even worse.. on.. on..

    Don’t care what any of yall niggas say.. “POWER”.. is trash.. yall niggas in love with the NIGGA.. and not the MUSIC… nigga could make a beat using a kazoo and cowbell and yall niggas would be claiming it was the best beat ever.

    Watch this album gonna come out and be sub par.. and yall niggas still gonna nut looking through the liner notes..

    Nigga, are you a women or a faggot, wtf are you talking about emotion, this shit aint r and b dude. This is hiphop, and mcing, it’s about saying the flyest shit in the most lyrical way, i’m sick of you neo soul niggas and your soft ass emo ways.

    It’s about balance, it’s about flow, lyrics, emotions, delivery, etc. You can’t overlook all aspects, your lyrics are your weapons as a mc. If you aint a dope lyricist, you pretty much is a spoken word artist to me. Go do Def Poetry Jam or some shit.

    Kanye wouldn’t even be able to sit at the same table as Nas,Jay,Pun,Pac,Andre 3000,etc. He aint a mc, Kanye is more of a artist than a mc.

  • John

    @ Word, shit, you leave me no choice homie. I used too think you were unbiased, but you’re a fucking R-Tard right now. Kanye changed the game just as much as others? Iight, usually, someone saying something stupid gets a facepalm from me and I keep moving on, but I ain’t got shit else too do, fuck all ya’ll haters, I’m goin in –

    Kanye is brilliant. Easily the most consistent MC in the game. He’s an artist you could write days about. From the game changing CD, to the undeniable classic that is LR, to the pop-culture classic Graduation (Stronger? Flashing Lights? Good Life? Good Morning? + beating out sales moster 50 in the beef everyone remembers), all the way down to 808’s and Heartbreak (give or take, but critically acclaimed and commercially successful, pretty amazing for a respected rapper going all auto-tune and making a pop album featuring nothing but singing, as said by Kanye himself).

    He’s the guy who’s never satisfied. There’s people at the top, but I feel Kanye is the guy looking at the top, and finding the best way to break the glass and reach even higher than before. Look at how different each one of his albums were.

    His impact is second to none in this decade. Without him, Drake, Cudi, Lupe, all wouldn’t have been signed. Do you people forget the impact made by Kanye repping gay people and when everyone started saying Kanye gay? And no not like ‘ya Gay people are cool’, but calling out other rappers and sh-t? He was the first non-gangster, that’s why he wouldn’t get signed. Once he got his chance, he proved everyone wrong. He broke down HUGE barriers in Rap.

    Or the IMPACT made by wearing a pink polo with a LV bag? He single handidly changed fashion in Hip-Hop, and that’s just an addition on the impact his albums have made (the content + beats on them).

    Add that to his production which is brilliant (many say he brought back soul sampling, and you can argue it), but the fact that he made these harmless beats on CD and stuff popular is phenomenal. He produced classic albums like The Blueprint, and Commons Be, and is STILL sh-tting out number 1 hits for artists (Drake’s biggest hit off his new album? Kanye produced, AND KANYE WROTE IT). So even though he has the skill the hit the top of the charts and play it safe, he chooses not too because he just feels the need to do more.

    Add that to the fact that he’s been real 100% in this game. Remember when he threw a fit when he didn’t win best debut artist? Or he upstaged Justice when he didn’t win best video for Touch The Sky? Now when he was even more fans, and more to lost (nearing his fifth album), dude is still pulling those stunts. Call him childish, or whatever you want, but he’s always been real to himself in this game. Still the guy in the same clothes, same personality, same lyrics and representation, still that underdog who’s not stopping.

    Add that to the fact he’s hit platinum a sh-t load of times, has got a billion hits, and produced a billion hits, more Grammy’s than ANY other rapper ever, and is placed seventh in most Grammy’s won by one artist, and he’s only been in this damn game for 6 years, (and more secondary awards as well). An album of the decade critique by EW, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and called The Most Influential Artist of the Decade by many places as well, both just named months ago, like wtf should I go on? His collabo’s with Coldplay, John Mayer, and his affection for Rock and Art that he posts on his blog. Everything about him is unique. Oh rap likes baggy clothes? Well I’ll wear my clothes tight! Oh rap doesn’t like soul beats? I’ll make my beats so good you’ll have to like em’. Oh, rap doesn’t like non-gangsters? Well I got the skill to make your life so exciting (fade away like in power). Like he CHANGED the game. His business statements (shoes with Nike and LV) like c’mon son! What other rapper can MAKE an album like 808’s and have two HUGE singles off it and a platinum selling record that critiqued super well? Kanye West, that’s who. He has his own label with superstars and platinum selling artists on it. I could go on and on and on.

    He’s f-king killed Nas on a track, he’s killed Jay on a track, he’s killed Wayne on tracks, the man is a monster right now. He’s been improving his lyrics and he’s been killing it ever since. He still was number 1 for me with his above average lyrics, because it was about more than lyrics for me, but now it’s like he’s unstoppable.

    That’s not even including his tours which are considered legendary. May I take you guys back to 2007/2008 when his latest creation, the Glow In The Dark tour came out? It’s known as one of the most CREATIVE tours in ever, and grossed I believe the MOST money that year out of concert sales.

    He unlike most artist actually adds his own background vocals, and plays LIVE instruments for his beats (piano’s, guitars) that he creates on his own, and he even instructs an ENTIRE orchestra (he does this live a lot, and changes the original sound of songs), here’s a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImKfG8equzY

    Co-signed by artists like Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Consequence, all the way down to T-Pain, Jay-Z, Wayne, etc.. Like wtf?! Like he said “Whether you call him Kwali or Kweli I put him on tracks with Jay-Z, I’m the Gap like Banana Republic and Old Navy”. He’s almost like a backpack mainstream rapper. He’s still talking about conscious sh-t, while in his number 1 hits, who the f-k else does that?! Obviously he does other stuff too, but that’s just rapper sh-t, and those are still dope as hell!

    He doesn’t get caught up in drugs, or half the other sh!t celebrities and ESPECIALLY rappers are getting themselves getting into with guns and stuff. So he got drunk and rushed a stage, compare it to half the stuff Hollywood does and it’s fking nothing. Get over it, jeez. Other than those few times, he promotes a GOOD lifestyle, loving and accepting, look at the stuff he stands up for. His best friend is ELLEN DEGENEROUS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

    This literally took my like 5 minutes to write. I just started going, like I said, his feats are undeniable. He’s is a genius. What this man and his music has done for my life is incredible.

    Hate on the man and his music all you want, but don’t deny his undeniable impact on Rap and even music.

    Basically, at the end of the day, GOD DAMMIT HE’S KILLING THIS SH-T!

    Yerp how do you call Relapse and Recovery Wack?

    Encore horrible but still had amazing songs on it…….Relapse to this date is his most lyrical and multisyllabic rhyming ever put together in one day..and Recovery was an amazing album (easily as good as The Eminem Show or better) and started putting Hip-Hop back to being dominant. Kanye has only one GREAT album which is Late Registration. Graduation was tight, I liked that he matured a lot on that album (Big Brother was my fav) but it still wasn’t as good as Late Registration. And 808 I threw in the trash, I played all the songs maybe 2 or 3 times and couldn’t stand it. IMO the dude has one great album, An pretty damn good one, and then a one click, one play album.

  • slimshady

    ^^^^^ wtf? you honestly thought recovery was dope? cmon son, i know its your opinion but that album WAS FUCKING TRASH, PURE POP. relapse was 100000000% better and that’s not saying much. eminem can still smack it on the mic, but as far as making quality, classic albums, he lost it since the eminem show dropped.

    kid your worse than stan. Recovery was a fuckin’ dope album concept and will win album of the year. Eminem has 2 classics under his belt, Kanye has none. end of story. Recovery easily topples anything Kanye has done.

    I honestly don’t see how 40’s sound and Kanye’s sound relates….but Noah is right, Drake and him have there own sound they possess and it really fits Drake to a tee

  • K-Lam

    I need to get off his dick? Buddy you are riding on Kanye’s Dick harder then ever. Stay away from the capital letters, just makes you look more like an ass. You are the kind of people who can’t justify why something is bad, you just think it’s bad and try and crucify other peoples’ opinions. Don’t take your period out on me you bitch.

    The truth is Ye is on every top 20 producers list I’ve ever seen, so Shebib and Boi-1da shouldn’t feel their sorry asses. Fuck, they look up to Ye coz that nigga has got power and was the force behind the sampling we enjoy.

    Fuck all you random haters who saying shit bout Ye.
    “And everybody want to run to me for their single
    It’s funny how these wack niggas need my help
    Wasn’t around when I couldn’t feed myself
    Dog, If I was you, I wouldn’t feel myself
    Dog, If I was you, I’d kill myself
    Made a mill myself, and I’m still myself”

    Ye, the fucking greatest with that and West doesn’t know music theory and 40 and 1da do so fuck ‘em. So he samples some old shit and makes it real shit.

    Name one other rapper who has released 5 albums in a row that were all heat. You can’t do it. Hov the closest one but none of his “Vol.’s” come close to any of Kanye’s shit.
