Jake One, the producer behind Drake’s “Furthest Thing”, recently sat down to explain how he and Drake caught up with one another to collaborate on “Nothing Was The Same”.
Jake One explained he had heard Drake was following him on Twitter and on a whim, sent over Drake some instrumentals. Drizzy wound up picking out the beat that later became “Furthest Thing”.
However, Jake One explained they had some difficulty clearing the sample he used, so they had to remake it from scratch, which 40 later touched up to perfect it for the album. In the video below, you can watch how Jake One initially made the beat, from start to finish!
