Nobody knows Drake and his musical catalog like his right-hand man Noah "40" Shebib.

40's been busy putting the finishing touches on Drake's upcoming album Certified Lover Boy.

But he took the time out to talk to The ETCs podcast.  During the chat, he was asked about his favorite all time Drizzy song.

He picked the So Far Gone cut "The Calm.

"Those bars in 'The Calm' about his mom, and fighting with his mom, and his uncle on the phone. You guys gotta understand, when we made that song, I was living on Fort York, which was a big condo in downtown Toronto they had just built," 40 explained. "That's where me and Drake first linked up and started making So Far Gone ... "Here's screaming and yelling, and he comes back in and he's just rattled. "He's livid, he's steaming mad. And he's like yo, put that beat on. And he walks up to the mic and bodies that record. And like, that experience of seeing him be so triggered by that conversation and then spit those bars, and then seeing the way people react to that song -- how heart-wrenching that was, how much you felt what he was saying, that was so real. That really happened in that moment. So for me listening to that song is pretty important to me. It also defined me as a producer, as far as that sparseness and being very different and very emotional in a time where motherf*ckers were making big booming, slapping records."

What's your favorite Drake track?
