Noah "40" Shebib, who is best known as Drake's in house producer, will be participating in MS Awareness week, in which he will be featured on a billboard in Times Square.
If you've listened to even a small selection of Drake's music, you've certainly heard the work of Noah "40" Shebib. Drizzy's in-house producer is as responsible for the Toronto rapper's sound as Champagne Papi himself, contributing the beats for the singlesÂ "Marvin's Room", andÂ "Successful", as well as plenty of deep cuts from his albums, offering at least additional production on the majority of his tracks.
The Toronto beatmaker will participate in theÂ National Multiple Sclerosis Society's MS Awareness Week. Shebib was diagnosed with MS at 22, and will be one of several people whoÂ appear on an electronic billboard in Times Square, in order to raiseÂ awareness ofÂ the disease.
Shebib spoke to CNN about his first experiences with the disease, and his difficulty expressing it to others.
âIt started with sensory issues. I woke up one day and all the temperature in my body was distorted. My sense of hot and cold and what that meant to my brain was very confusing,â40 revealed to CNN. âI think one of the biggest struggles people with MS face is trying to define it to people and explain how it manifests itself. Itâs very difficult, you know.â
Despite his struggle with MS, Shebib remains hard at work on music, and you can expect to see his name all over the production credits for Drake's new album Nothing Was The Same.
