The Zaytoven-produced project dropped in early 2015 as part of a mixtape trilogy, following 2014's Monster and preceding 2015's 56 Nights. Beast Mode consisted of nine tracks, including the lead single "Real Sisters" and the Juvenile-assisted "Aintchu."
During a 2015 interview with Boombox, Zaytoven shed some light on their collaborative process and the how they created the tape in the matter of days.
"Really, the work was done in two to three days. The rest was just picking which record we wanted to use. For somebody else to come in and see us doing the work, it would blow your mind ..." Zaytoven explained. "We might’ve gotten 40 songs done as we were putting this tape together. That’s us doing songs back-to-back. I make a beat, he raps to it … And we’d do it all over again. We might do 10 songs a day."
You can stream Beast Mode now on Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and more.
