  • Talib Kweli And Zaytoven Talk Gucci Mane, Migos, & Churchs Influence On Trap Music | Peoples Party

    53:26

    In this episode of People's Party, Talib Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh sit down with Grammy Award-winning record producer and pioneer of the Trap Music sound -- Zaytoven. This in-depth interview gives us great insight on how Zay became one of the biggest names in the industry, starting with his beginnings living in the Bay during the 90's perfecting his craft under legends like JT The Bigga Figga and E-40, then moving to Atlanta to produce and help shape the careers of so many Trap Music icons, including Lecrae, Gucci Mane, Migos, and countless others. As the interview progresses, Zaytoven opens up about the church's influence on his music, and how he balances his deep-rooted faith, while operating in the Trap world.

    Kweli, Jasmin, and Zaytoven go on to discuss his talent as a barber, and how that skill helped contribute to his level of success. (Along with why he kept a steady gig, even when he had hits.) Talib and Zaytoven trade stories of their first interactions with Gucci Mane, and the lead up to their collaboration on the record Poltergeist. Zay also shares how he met Migos and Usher, and details the awe he experienced watching Future at work in the studio.

    As the interview comes to a close the trio discusses contrasting strategies on staying relevant with today's fickle fan-bases, producers not getting their due props in the Spotify era, and what Zaytoven has in store for us down the line.

    22:26 -- Zaytoven then tells the story of how he first met Gucci Mane, how he started making beats for Gucci to rap over, and the story behind So Icy. He also expands on what it was like making songs for the club and the streets as well as Gucci's intelligence and confidence in what they were doing. And finally they dive into the Gucci Mane clone rumors and what it is that started the Gucci Mane Clone theory online.

    33:05 -- Zaytoven explains how he balances his Christian faith with making trap music and working with some of the hardest artists in the game, complete with an anecdote about how Gucci Mane introduces him to people. This leads into a discussion on the sound of the club in Atlanta and how that led Zaytoven to working with Usher and his experience there.

    37:00 -- Zaytoven speaks on his working relationship with Future and his amazement watching him operating in the studio.

    38:24 -- Zaytoven and Talib discuss rapper, Lecrae's ability to successfully carry Christianity in the vein of Trap without compromising his creative integrity.

    41:03 -- Talib asks Zaytoven, what are the things about an artist like Lil' Uzi Vert that a hip-hop purist should respect and appreciate.

    44:58 -- Zaytoven and Talib discuss the differing strategies, balances, pros and cons of staying relevant in the modern-era of music by releasing lots of content vs. less, keeping people in anticipation of every release. Zaytoven also gives producers some advice on how to get more recognition in the music streaming age, where they are rarely given full credit.

    50:16 -- Talib: Tell us what's in the future for Zaytoven, besides you, and me working together. Jasmin also asks Zaytoven about Atlanta's Trap Round Table event.

  • Zaytoven - Against The Clock

    8:17

    The fastest Against The Clock yet.

    Atlanta's Zaytoven, the mastermind behind beats for artists like Gucci Mane, Future and Migos, doesn't need too much of an introduction - his deft skills on the keys precede him. Just how skilled is he? Back in May he told the crew on Shade 45's Sway in the Morning that he doesn't spend more than 10 minutes making his classics. Of course, we had to invite him to prove it.

    Recorded at the legendary Conway Studios in the Hollywood, Zay not only completed one of the swiftest Against The Clocks in the series' history, he gave us a few extras. After finishing up on a MPC X he had never used before (so he was without his usual tool belt!), he gave us a little tickling of the ivories like he does at church and then invited Huntington Beach up-and-comer Yung Pinch to lay some vocals over the track.

  • Zaytoven: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    11:37

    Feb. 28, 2019 | Rodney Carmichael -- The Lord works in mysterious ways. It might sound cliché, but there's really no better way to describe the circumstances that led to prolific producer Zaytoven's impromptu Tiny Desk.

    Last month, Zaytoven arrived at Bob Boilen's desk with a full band in tow with the intent of backing up his Atlanta friend and collaborator Future, who had dropped his latest album, The Wzrd, earlier that day. The plan was to translate the bass-heavy trap sound Zaytoven helped originate to real instruments with Neil Garrard on guitar, Bernard TreWay Lambert on drums, DJ Spinz and Elena on flute (for what would've been a live version of Mask Off).

    After several hours of waiting, with the band all warmed up and ready, word came that Future would be a no-show. So, to our thrill, Zaytoven redeemed the occasion with his own Tiny Desk concert, featuring instrumental versions of a couple of the earliest hits he produced for Future's Beast Mode, the mixtape that helped usher their respective rebirths in 2015.

    The Tiny Desk also served as the perfect platform to highlight Zaytoven's own career-long faith walk.

    I wasn't even allowed to listen to this type of music, let alone to be producing it, he told me a little over a year ago in the church outside Atlanta where he plays organ every Sunday morning. He was remembering how conflicted he'd once felt as a young producer who'd grown up in the church to be playing his trade for street artists like future trap god Gucci Mane (who Zaytoven would later back on keys during his first visit to the Tiny Desk). To be the godfather of the sound, it was almost embarrassing for me, like, 'Hold on, bruh. This ain't really how I was brought up. This ain't really what I do.' I'm a guy that's in the church and I try to lead people more so that way.

    Indeed, there's a long legacy of sanctified musicians who took their gift, honed in the choir stand, and went the secular route, before finally renouncing their fame and returning to their gospel roots. But Zaytoven sidestepped that guilt trip on the way to becoming one of the most celebrated and imitated hip-hop producers of the last decade. Where so many musicians before him fell into a morality trap, Zay found a way to make trap music his ministry.

    God made it where my sound has been heard over the years by millions of people, he said. Instead of preaching to the choir, he brought his faith to the trap.

  • The Making Of Lil Pumps Designer With Zaytoven | Deconstructed

    7:06

    While Lil Pump climbed the charts last year with his breakout hit “Gucci Gang,” the official video stirred up controversy after news surfaced that it was shot in a Catholic elementary school. The Archdiocese of L.A. was furious with the school for allowing Pump to shoot a video that depicted images of drugs, and the story was picked up by broadcast news outlets.

    The rapper embraced the backlash on his song “Designer,” incorporating samples from the news reports. The track dropped this past December and has since raked in over 32 million Spotify streams. The producer behind the song is noted beat-maker Zaytoven, who has also worked with everyone from Migos to Nicki Minaj to Future to Travis Scott, among others.

    Super
    You can feel the pain on a young nigga you hear me?
    Future Hendix
    Young rich nigga
    Fucking bad bitches
    That's all I know (that's all I know)
    What up
    It's sad to say that
    Hendrix
    This couldn't be love, man
    This couldn't be love

    Chorus: Future
    Check out the way I be glistening yah
    Four-door Bugatti, you mention me yah
    Diamonds they drapped in my portfoli-yah
    Fill up a safe, I'm more realer than y'all
    Fuck my new case, I'm more realer than y'all
    Ace by the case, I'm more realer than y'all
    Sleep with the K, I'm more realer than y'all
    A regular day, I'm more chiller than y'all
    Diamonds on freeze, ain't gon' never thaw out
    Niggas talk shit, ain't gon' never be found
    Counting it up and I'm losing the count
    Fuck all this 'Tussin, this Act' I'ma down
    Strappin' it up with a whole hundred rounds
    Sackin' it up, ain't no fucking around
    We get that guap, ain't no fucking around

    Verse 1: Future
    Ice overload, this ain't regular ice
    Hop on a private, ain't regular flights
    Smash on your hoe, this is everyday life
    I filled the safe up from cooking the white
    Fall out the Pyrex, the cake and the bowl
    Used to the fame, ya'll ain't taking my soul
    Came in the game, I was hot as a stove
    Pour out some lean, I'm trynna let it go
    Rocking Celine from her head to her toes
    Fur on her back, in the summer she cold
    VVs gon' light up and glisten, they glow
    Blinding your eyesight, you never gon' see
    Came out the 6, damn, my diamonds on fleek
    I made a mill in the middle of the week
    I sell a chicken in the middle of the street
    When I drop a tape the murder rate increase
    Fuck all that poppin, ' I stay with some bands
    Shawty so yellow, she stay with a tan
    Diamonds on me, got some rocks on my hand
    Fuck the police, gotta stay with the can
    I drop the top off a regular Wraith
    Shawty on Perc, this a drug addict date
    I got the torch, I can't give it away
    Ain't no remorse, you get hit in the face

    Chorus: Future
    Check out the way I be glistening yah
    Four-door Bugatti, you mention me yah
    Diamonds they drapped in my portfoli-yah
    Fill up a safe, I'm more realer than y'all
    Fuck my new case, I'm more realer than y'all
    Ace by the case, I'm more realer than y'all
    Sleep with the K, I'm more realer than y'all
    A regular day, I'm more chiller than y'all
    Diamonds on freeze, ain't gon' never thaw out
    Niggas talk shit, ain't gon' never be found
    Counting it up and I'm losing the count
    Fuck all this 'Tussin, this Act' I'ma down
    Strappin' it up with a whole hundred rounds
    Sackin' it up, ain't no fucking around
    We get that guap, ain't no fucking around

    Verse 2: Future
    Four-door Bugatti, you mention a G
    Brand new Millennium, might hit the streets
    I stacked it up, get to having a feast
    I racked it up like Serena with me
    Like it's Venus with me
    Got the Nina with me
    We screaming 'Freebandz, ' this money ain't free
    I cook it up, I'ma cook up a key
    When I cook up a key, I'ma charge you a fee
    I did it first, it ain't none but a trend
    Swerve on a curb, it ain't none but a Benz
    I was on 2 two then I took it to 10
    Keep in one thou, rep the gang in the pen'
    Shoot at the police, ain't coming back home
    Down for my crew if they right or they're wrong
    Get to that money, that's all I condone
    Shoot at your top, you ain't fucking with homes
    We hit the block, had a bag full of stones
    Jugged off a bale before I made a song
    They ain't gon' tell you how I got it on
    I'm not a failure, I'm deep in my zone
    Paraphernalia, I serve you a chrome
    Super exclusive when I put it on
    We getting zooted where I'm coming from
    Toasting that lean like it's Dom Perignon

    Chorus: Future
    Check out the way I be glistening yah
    Four-door Bugatti, you mention me yah
    Diamonds they drapped in my portfoli-yah
    Fill up a safe, I'm more realer than y'all
    Fuck my new case, I'm more realer than y'all
    Ace by the case, I'm more realer than y'all
    Sleep with the K, I'm more realer than y'all
    A regular day, I'm more chiller than y'all
    Diamonds on freeze, ain't gon' never thaw out
    Niggas talk shit, ain't gon' never be found
    Counting it up and I'm losing the count
    Fuck all this 'Tussin, this Act' I'ma down
    Strappin' it up with a whole hundred rounds
    Sackin' it up, ain't no fucking around
    We get that guap, ain't no fucking around

  • Gucci Mane: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    9:40

    Frannie Kelley | December 12, 2016 — Gucci Mane's smile makes you feel like there's still some good in the world. He's really earned it, and that thing is infectious. We asked him to come to NPR because we wanted to be a part of the victory tour he's been on this year: In the past six months or so, Gucci Mane was released early from the federal penitentiary; he proposed to his girlfriend on the kiss cam at a Hawks game, and she said yes; he's releasing a total of three albums, all over which he celebrates his newly committed sobriety; he and Courtney Love look like they get along; and he remade Jingle Bells.

    In this Tiny Desk concert, Gucci Mane performed with just his longtime producer and friend, Zaytoven, on piano. Their version of stripped-down is a minimal backing track and plenty of church-groomed trills. They performed with the understanding that everyone in the room knew their songs — one from 2009 and two from this year — and knew that this performance would represent a surreal dip into a parallel universe where ingenuity is rewarded, snobbery is gone and love is real. Gucci Mane agreed to this unlikely set as a gesture to those people — for remembering his work while he was away, and for cheering on his resurgence, his health, his charm and his singular nature.

    The Return Of East Atlanta Santa is available exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music:

    SET LIST:
    First Day Out
    Waybach
    Last Time

    MUSICIANS:
    Gucci Mane (vocals); Zaytoven (keys).

    CREDITS:
    Producers: Frannie Kelley, Niki Walker; Audio Engineers: Suraya Mohamed, Josh Rogosin; Videographers: Niki Walker, Kara Frame, Nicole Boliaux; Production Assistant: CJ Riculan; Photo: Claire Harbage/NPR.
