Drake & Gucci Mane in Talks for Joint Project, Says Zaytoven

Are Drake and Gucci Mane recording a project together?

According to Zaytoven, that’s a real possibility. The Atlanta producer recently spoke with XXL about the potential effort following “Back on Road” and also about a viral photo featuring Guwop, Drizzy, Mike WiLL Made-It, and himself.

“We were doing the video for Gucci Mane’s first video for the album,” he explained. “It was featuring Young Thug but Young Thug wasn’t there yet. We were in there talking and Drake just came by because he was in town and wanted to stop through. We just got to talkin’ about doing a project together—Gucci and Drake together. We were sitting there talking about that until the picture happened. And it went viral from there.”

Zaytoven is also working on another major project: Beast Mode 16 with Future. It’s the follow-up to the first installment, which dropped in 2015.

“It got a lot of special music on there,” he explained. “We recording a bunch of songs together, we’re still going. We did like two more last night. We really are trying to put a work of art together. We got to outdo the first one so we just got different ways and different sounds. It’s something new.”

So what about a Guwop and Future collab?

“Oh yeah, definitely,” added Zaytoven. “I will try to make sure of it.”
