Drake Enlists Andre 3000 For "Take Care"

Producer Noah "40" Shebib reveals that Three Stacks cameos on the upcoming LP.

Drake previously reached out to Andre 3000 for his debut LP Thank Me Later, but Three Stacks originally turned him down. For his upcoming sophomore release Take Care, Drizzy finally got his wish, collaborating with the Outkast member for a cut on the album.

In an interview with The Fader, Drake's go-to producer Noah "40" Shebib revealed that 3K phoned Drake to express interest in collaborating for the upcoming album.

"The night before, Drake received a call from Andre 3000, who said he wanted to get on the rapper’s next LP—and, specifically, on a beat made by 40. The original name of the instrumental was 'Good Enough for the Both of Us,'" writes The Fader. "Suddenly they switch to boardroom mode. Drake, 40, and Drake’s DJ, Future the Prince, discuss Andre 3000 in frank, mathematical terms: the timbre of his voice, the cadences he prefers. They recall his obscure 'Walk it Out' freestyle and the run of features since then, and talk about how their instrumental could be modified to better suit Andre’s delivery."

    Drake + 40 x Andre 3 stacks = Greatness

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    Andre 3000 is giving "Take Care" his stamp of approval so that is good enough for me! Getting a verse from 3000 is the gold standard and is the most prized feature of them all.

    • ThatKidWithTheCrown

      He's not giving the album the stamp of approval, nor Drake. Technically he's not even giving the song, in its original form sans 3000, the stamp of approval. The only thing he is putting his stamp of approval on is the beat.

      WHen folks hear this track they are going to love and hate. I'm mad because I thought he was coming out Oct 24, now I got to wait until Nov 15.

      The only thing he's giving a stamp of approval is that big ass check for one verse.

  • YADIG

  • T-dubb

    What the fuck is 3 Stacks doing these days? He pops up on a feature every now and then but that's about it. He's not making movies and his cartoon has been of the air since 2008. Where the fuck is the album?!
