Last month, Zaytoven announced that a Gucci Mane and Drake joint project was "in the works."
In a new video for Vlad TV, the producer elaborates on how it happened, and where it's at.
We were shooting a video for 'Gucci's Home' and Drake just showed up and they got to talking, you know how Gucci is, he was like 'hey man, we oughta do a tape together,' and Drake was like, 'bet, we oughta do it.' And right then, we started thinking about a name, and Drake said, 'we oughta call it the ... I think he said The 6'ers," Zaytoven explained. "Cause where he from they call it The Six and then 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, it was like okay that's what we gunna do. And we already started doing songs for it."Zaytoven went on to say that he, Mike WiLL, Gucci and Drake began recording that same day, and already have two concrete songs for the project.
The added (and likely unintended) benefit of calling the project Sixers is that it hints at a Meek Mill "Philadelphia 76ers" diss.
