Noah “40” Shebib is best known for being Drake’s beatsmith in rhyme since Drizzy first rose from his Degrassi wheelchair and became a permanent fixture in our musical lives. 40’s beats consistently run the gamut of sounds—from super mellow to super amped up—depending upon the situation. He is well on his way to superproducer status, especially given his production productivity.

So now it’s time to salute the producer who has given us some of our favorite instrumentals over the last few years. Check out 40 of 40’s best beats. --KI
