Drake Interpolates Toronto Multi-instrumentalist & BADBADNOTGOOD Affiliate, River Tiber's "No Talk" on "No Tellin'" (unsigned)


"BIG UPS TO THIS NEW @DRAKE FIRE PROD. BY @FRANKDUKES [AND] @BOI1DA FT. @RIVERTIBER ON THE PART 2 VOCALS #NOTELLIN #6HITZ," @badbadnotgood frantically Tweeted upon the release of Drake's surprise mixtape/album, IF YOUR READING THIS ITS TOO LATE, late last month. That very track, Tiber aka Tommy Paxon-Beesley's own original composition, "No Talk" went unreleased... until yesterday afternoon when The FADER premiered it; "I've been working with Frank Dukes for a minute. He made a dope sample with my vocal stem, which Boi-1da put drums on top of, and I guess Drake liked the beat and recorded to it," BBNG-affiliated multi-instrumentalist River Tiber lamented to The FADER. "No Talk" is a glitchy Electro/percussion-aided emotive track, which in its original form, honestly, doesn't sound all that far removed from your typical Emo-Rap Drake beat. While it seems as though they might have sampled "No Talk"'s instrumental (or something similar) for the first half of "No Tellin,'" you can distinctively hear River Tiber's vocal flourishes, which have now been reduced to a ghostly wail, come in at right around the 3-minute mark. The FADER additionally notes that "Tiber plans to drop two new records this year," but it's unclear whether or not "No Talk" will ultimately end up re-appearing on either project. Although, in the meantime, you can hear Tiber's production/songwriting work scattered all over BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah's critically-acclaimed, nearly three years in-the-making collaborative album, Sour Soul (Lex Records).
