Zaytoven and Future have been cooking.
This summer could shape up to be a big one for Zaytoven. The prolific Atlanta beatmaker has been logging long hours with the recently-freed Gucci Mane. He and Future have been teasing Beast Mode 2 on Instagram, and in his new #BehindTheBeat interview with HNHH, he provided information that the long-awaited sequel mixtape may be near on the horizon.
“Ever since [Beast Mode], we’ve recorded numerous times," Zay said. "Every time we go in the studio, we’re gonna do five, ten songs together. But we got, I know, at least 100 songs.”
100 songs! At least!! It's a massive figure, although not too surprising given Future's output over the course of the last two years. It supports Southside's assertion that Future is sitting on "six albums and three mixtapes" as of last November.
Another fascinating tidbit from the interview: Zaytoven mentioned that he hadn't spoken to Future in three years prior to Beast Mode because Future spent so much time in Los Angeles. Future reached out during the first week of 2015 and they made the tape in 10 days.
