Drake and Gucci Mane‘s joint project is definitely a real thing, and it’s on its way. Now, in a new interview with Vlad TV, one of Guwop’s go-to collaborators and producers is revealing part of the backstory behind the forthcoming collaboration. Sitting down for an expansive Vlad TV feature, Zaytoven shared the following with regards to the beginnings of Drake and Gucci’s joint record:
“We was shooting a video [at] Gucci’s home, and Drake just showed up, I was like, ‘damn, Drake here.’ They got to talking, Gucci and Drake started talking… And Gucci like, ‘hey man, we ought to do a tape together,’ and Drake was like, ‘bet, we ought to do it.’ And right then, 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. 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, okay that’s what we gonna do. And we already started doing songs for it.”
