Video: 40 Talks About Kendrick Lamar’s “Buried Alive” Interlude

MTV put up a track-by-track rundown of Take Care with Drake producer and right-hand man Noah “40” Shebib. In this clip he talks about his reaction to Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “Buried Alive”.

After the jump, 40 talks about why they chose to bring back Jamie XX’s remix of the Gil Scott-Heron song.

Also, there’s some pics from the Take Care sessions on the OVO blog.

    Euro kizzas > Yank kizzas

    ALL DAY. No wonder folk of different ethnic/racial backgrounds hate them. I saw enough on my travels in South America to know that they gave crack to the wrong race in America. Shoulda been the kizzas.

    Sending some 6’8 300 pound security niggas to put the clamps on somebody you said you were gonna fuck up personally is the definition of fuck shit.

    Sounded very angry & pissed off. Out of character for him.

    The tattoo artist that did the Drake tat on that girls forehead said he was “The softest motherfucker in hip hop.” Drake said “Fuck that guy.Ill fuck him up if I see him.” To which the tattoo artist replied “I hope he runs up on me I’ll kick his ass.” Then Drake paid him a visit,but sat in the car while his bodyguards tried to intimidate the tattoo dude.

  22. Harlem World Says:

    Take Care is such a feminine song tho.

    Drake sounds more sensitive than Riri on it.

    Rihanna is straight forward ” hears what ill do, ill take care of you”.

    So Drake is the bitch in the relationship.

    *Ye shrugs*

    Kendricks ‘Buried Alive” verse was the wackest verse ive heard from him

    sweartogod if he don’t drop something soon niggas will have forgotten about it by the weekend. which is probably the most likely scenario.

    I skimmed all your mixtapes and even dl’d George kush which was good.
    And since I kno your reading this.
    Fam your a weed rapper! Face it! You can’t escape it you only rap about kush x polo that’s it. Where’s the struggle, adversity, bitches sumn! You ain’t gonna get far w out it. The flow is early 90s jay @ times which I respect n like but we need more content or paint pictures or sumn.

    I remember when Drake blew the f up, he was all Mr Humble.

    Being surrounded by hangers on & yes men will change anybody.

    This piffery I got from mcb tho? , you can literally roll a nug up in a little ball and stick it to the mirror, b.

  50. Harlem World Says:

    @007

    Dza is good money. I was playing The World just the other day.

    But like you said, subject matter is very limited. Can’t complain about being called a weed rapper when almost every track title or album title is kush this, stoned that, weed this, papers that. Also noticed most of the tracks of his I like are with Curren$y.

    Seems like a nice guy tho, should just be happy to be getting that tour money. Can’t see him crossing over tho.

    I rock with a Glock 17 when I’m in the hood.I have a concealed carry license because I do live in a “bamma” state.I keep a Bushmaster Carbon 15 with the 30 round banana and laser sight for home defense.Im a college student though.I just respect my 2nd amendment rights.

  53. Harlem World Says:

    @007

    He sounds high when he rhymes too.

    Sounds like one of those kizza hippies when he says “roooiiiit”. Not hating, just an observation.

    But he does tracks with Mac Miller(counts for something lol) & Wiz who all got hits out. Dza is worrying about nothing, he’s doing fine. Should be happy to be making a living off doing something he loves, not doing a grinding a 9 to 5. I like his music.

  54. Harlem World Says:

    @chainheavy

    cant even get a concealed carry license in ny unless youre of “special persons status” – i think only politicians, certain businessmen and their security men are allowed them.

    sitting duck status.

  55. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    @HW,

    Easiest way around that is to spend $150 for your security license bro.

    Get your gun card with it uncontested.
