"Man, it always bring a Kool-Aid smile to my face to work with Future and Drake," Zaytoven told HipHopDX. The producer went on to explain how the whole thing came together after Gucci Mane got out of prison and Drake stopped by the rapper's home while he was still on house arrest to celebrate Gucci's release.
"When Gucci got out and we were all together taking pictures, the first thing Drake said to me when I saw him was that he'd just rapped on one of my beats with Future, which makes this collab even more special," he added. "I think that’s why I've remained in this industry for so long because it’s so exciting and I love it. You never know what song’s gonna take off and when or who’s gonna jump on it. It keeps me creative and on my toes."
Of course, Zaytoven and Future have teamed up together in the past. Most recently, Zaytoven has been working at the sound boards for Future's highly-anticipated Beast Mode follow up, Beast Mode 16. Back in September, the producer confirmed that the record was finished and that the first single would feature Drake, but gave no other details as to when the project might drop.
All we can do now is wait for the drop, but there's even more Zaytoven to look forward to with Gucci's The Return of East Atlanta Santa, which is expected to arrive Dec. 16.
