In a new documentary called “Toronto Rising: 40’s Very Own,” Shebib lets his truth be told with never before seen photos and videos from his childhood.
Shebib documents his journey to becoming Drake’s go-to producer. In the beginning, he shares that his love started very young, and started playing the piano at three years old. Growing up in Toronto, 40 described the diversity of the city and even in the present day with a good mix of races, religions, and cultures.
