Views From the 6, Drake’s ode to Toronto, isn’t just being made in the rapper’s hometown. Instead, Drizzy’s longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib says the West Coast has been instrumental in the LP’s creative process.
“It’s just the balance of finding that space to make such a project that’s based around our city and then also we coming out here to the West Coast to escape some of that harsh winter and find a good creative space,” 40 told Cypress Hill’s B-Real during a “Smokebox” interview. “It has to be a balance of both of those locations though, for what it’s supposed to be.”
The follow-up to If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is supposed to drop in April, according to Drake, and 40 claims they’re almost done with it.
“We’re getting very, very close and the time will come, I think, when Drake’s ready to pull that trigger,” Shebib said.
Drizzy has already pulled the trigger on a single (“Summer Sixteen“) and a release month, but we still don’t know the exact date for Views.
