Actually I find it's a cross between what 40 and boi 1 da.
T minus tends to drench the melody or synth line in reverb and maybe some delay and he automates filters/eq (40 probably influenced this whether it was a conscious thing or not), his drums are essentially dirty south drums with a couple minor exceptions that make his tracks stand out a bit.
It's all pretty fluid.
1da's style is usually a lil more Staccatto. Like drakes 'headlines' although 'not afraid' wasn't like that, that was a bit of a departure from his norm.
