In a recent interview with Vibe, the Toronto born/ OVO producer mentioned that he was recruited by Havoc to produce a few records on the upcoming The Infamous Mobb Deep.
It’s new-age with that old Mobb twist to it. I was a big fan of Mobb Deep and Havoc’s production, so I just reached out and me and him have been producing records together, sending stuff back and forth. I can say that I have some records on the new Mobb Deep album that me and Havoc did together. It’s something I knocked off my bucket list.
He’s also set to “bring back” real Hip-Hop:
I’m not with that jiggy stuff. I want people to hear my music and be like, ‘Wow that’s hip-hop, but that’s not like fucking backpack.’ Not crazy down-south trendy music—I’m not about trendy. I’m about making legendary and timeless music.
Boi-1da also mentioned that he would love to hear him go back to his roots and create an all-rap album, stating that ultimately it’s entirely up to Drizzy and producer Noah “40” Shebib.
