In October, Drake guested on OVO Sound Radio in honor of his 30th birthday, sharing four songs, including the divisive "Two Birds, One Stone." When the song became available on TIDAL, it was revealed that Kanye West was credited as a producer, composer, and lyricist on the track, adding fuel to the fire.

In a recent interview with Genius, Noah "40" Shebib explained the pretty simple reason why Kanye West was credited. “Me and Kanye produced the track,” he told Genius. “I made it from some drums he had given me. Not quite the elaborate story the world is looking for.”

Regarding Kanye's lyricist credit on TIDAL, a source close to the situation told The FADER, "when someone contributes to a song as a producer/musician they are considered a writer, as he is alongside Noah Shebib and the other musicians on the song."
