As an innovator of the modern day trap music sound (that we all know and love), Zaytoven is forever one with some cool shit to say…or to show. Topics in this Off The Record episode include: his start in the Bay Area with JT The Bigga Figga, being an army brat from Germany, meeting Gucci Mane, when he heard Migos‘ “Bando,” and revealing to the world just how old the “Versace” beat really is (by the exact file date and all).
Wop just dropped three new tapes, and we still have extra shots in the clip to let off. First, the cinematic venture of a Trap House III stand-out with recent 1017-signee, Chief Keef (what’s a video with Sosa without crazed ATV antics).
Gucci Mane “Darker” (Feat. Chief Keef, Prod. 808 Mafia)
Gucci never was the one to do hand in half-assed guest work:
Tim Savage “Bodies” (Feat. Gucci Mane)
DC “Get Money” (Feat. Gucci Mane)
For the completists, here is the recent collaborative project with the Bay Area’s own Figg Panamera (with heavy cameo work by Kevin Gates), Fillmoelanta 3.
Que and Sonny Digital continuing the fine tradition of making Atlanta seem like THE PLACE to throw a house party. I mean, shit, they are “partying” to this creepy ass piece of music (by none other than the brood master himself, Zaytoven)! My OTHER favorite track off of Forbes Atlanta.
Rich The Kid and Migos have their original public apology reworked with yet another pairing of OJ Da Juiceman and RiFF RAFF. Second time we see OJ and Jody together in a week, and I’ll go on to say that I would not be mad at a collaborative project between the two, especially if handled by Zaytoven.
Rich The Kid “Sorry” (Feat. Migos, OJ Da Juiceman, & RiFF RAFF, Prod. Zaytoven)
Bonus: New edition of the Trap Music mixtape series, hosted by, guess who, Migos. Also boasts brand new music by Waka Flocka Flame, Chief Keef, Eldorado Red, Alley Boy, Bloody Jay, and then some. If you’ve ever wondered what the tape’s hosts would sound like over the darker, “fight music” stylings of, say, 808 Mafia, dream no more (the song even finds them with Waka and other B$M/Dirt Gang crew members).
Get Trap Music: Me & My Migos Edition
Exkra Bonus: Another mixtape from this week. Get this for the exclusive Migos, Future, Casino, Young Thug, and Bloody Jay material.
Zaytoven released his Birds Of A Feather movie today on iTunes…now here is the soundtrack. You know what that means? A bunch of brand new hypnotic jammers with ’nuff “crow scrapes” and “brood bass” to have you dreaming of cookware for weeks. Stand-out moments include performances by Gucci Mane, Eldorado Red, Migos, Chief Keef, and, actually, the list goes on.
Take this as a reminder that Zay IS the godfather of trap rap.
