Earlier this week, producer Zaytoven shared that Beast Mode 16, the hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s Beast Mode is finally finished. With many questions lingering about the project and what to expect from the rapper who has become a champion for album-quality mixtapes, Billboard caught up with Zaytoven on the red carpet of the BET Hip Hop Awards 2016 to discuss the forthcoming release.
“We should be dropping a single within two weeks,” he offered, continuing, “and it’s featuring Drake.”
Drake & Future to Release Joint Album 'What a Time to Be Alive'
This announcement comes as no surprise as Future is co-headlining the Summer Sixteen Tour with Drake and the two fused their musical talents on wax for the collaborative mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive, around this same time last year.
While there has yet to be a release date revealed for Beast Mode 16, Zaytoven assures that listeners will experience “mind-blowing music,” referring to the re-up as the inaugural mixtape on steroids.
