Last year Drake joined forces with Future for What A Time To Be Alive. Could the Toronto native partner with another Atlanta rapper for a joint project in the coming months?
AllHipHop.com spoke with Zaytoven about some of his upcoming production credits, and the hit maker revealed there has been discussion about Drake and Gucci Mane possibly releasing a full body of work together.
“We were at the video shoot. We were working on Gucci’s album, and Drake just came through,” says Zaytoven. “We were talking a little bit about working on a project. We were thinking about working on a project with Gucci and Drake.”
The world got a taste of what a GuWop/Drizzy mixtape would sound like when the song “Back On Road” dropped last month. Zone 6 and The 6 came together on the Murda Beatz produced track.
Even if that potential Drake and Gucci mixtape does not actually materialized, followers of Champagne Papi can look for the OVO boss to reconnect with Future on at least one upcoming track.
“We got one, maybe two, [Drake features] for Beast Mode 16. One for sure,” offers Zay about the sequel to his critically acclaimed Beast Mode mixtape with Future.
Zaytoven also revealed the duo has already settled on about 95% of the songs that will appear on Beast Mode 16. Fans of the “Real Sisters” rhymer should expect more music that made the 2015 original mixtape part of Future’s “4peat” run of successful solo projects.
“When you listen to Beast Mode 1, to me it’s almost like a work of art. All the tracks we did were real piano driven, real melody driven,” Zaytoven states. “So we’re back at that again, but it’s almost times 10 on this one.”
In addition, Zay was heavily involved with Gucci’s Everybody Looking album which is due out July 22.
