Gucci Mane’s Producer Zaytoven Confirms Gucci & Drake’s Joint Album
It’s been rumored pretty much since Gucci Mane saw his release from prison that he and Drake have some new music on the way. Drizzy and Guwop certainly have a lot in common, and as Zaytoven shares in a new interview with VladTV, the pair are choosing to highlight their roots on their forthcoming collaboration.
Zay shared that the album would be titled The 6’ers, which makes perfect sense considering Drake is from Toronto (The Six) and Gucci is from Zone 6 in Atlanta.
In a new interview discussing how the project between Gucci and Drake came into fruition, Zaytoven says that the two simply got to talking.
“We was shooting a video [at] Gucci’s home, and Drake just showed up. I was like, ‘Damn, Drake here,’” Zay says. “They got to talking, Gucci and Drake started talking, and Gucci [was] like, ‘Hey man, we oughta do a tape together,’ and Drake was like, ‘Bet, we oughta do it.’”
From there, the idea to work together seemed obvious enough that the two started brainstorming possible names for the EP right on the spot.
“ He started thinking about a name, and Drake said, ‘We oughta call it the…’ I think he said The 6’ers. ‘Cause where he from they call it The Six and Gucci Mane from Zone 6,” Zay continues. “Then we just ran with it right there, and then Mike WiLL just jumped in like, ‘Ay, yeah me and Zay start on that, we’ll do the beats for it, we’ll start on it right now.’ And everybody was in agreeance with it, so it’s like, OK, that’s what we gonna do. And we already started doing songs for it.”
