If we’re talking about hit-making, the art of the perfect trap beat and studio chemistry, Zaytoven has been the one to go to and his protege Cassius J has been working hard to get his weight up.
In an exclusive interview released a few weeks back with artist branding mogul, Lalaa Shep, the beat god Zaytoven gave the real on music and culture.
Just a small viewing disclaimer: For this interview, you just might wanna plug into a speaker that’ll beat nicely for the “Ayeee!” moments.
There are plenty of ‘behind-the-scenes’ folks that come forward after a while and you’re like, “Man, he did all that!?” Yep. Zaytoven is one.
Since 2006, Zay’s been breaking artists to include his partner in crime, Gucci Mane, Young Dolph, Migos and countless others. Zay spoke on his forthcoming projects with Migos, OG Maco, Travis Scott, a plethora of Atlanta’s top artists and his desire to work with Cam’Ron.
Decatur native Cassius J has been building his resume with breakout records such as the chart climbing Bankroll Fresh‘s ‘Hot Boy’ and Cool Amerika’s ‘Make Sum Shake.’
The beatsmiths share that they are both musicians at their church — putting an interesting light on their musical ear and improvisational abilities.
Zay seems like an introvert in regard to his personal life but he opens up when it comes to music, so it’ll be interesting to read his new book, From A To Zay.
This one is a candid interview. I especially encourage those seeking to get into the game to take a few notes, they’re dropping some gems.
