Producer Zaytoven has revealed details surrounding a number of new projects with Jamie Foxx, Plies and Fantasia.
Zaytovens production can be heard on hit songs for Usher (Papers), Gucci Mane (So Icey), Soulja Boy (Eazy), Yo Gotti (Aw Mann), and others.
In 2010, he will work with a diverse group of new artists, while focusing his attention on crafting tracks for Young Jeezys upcoming mixtapes and album.
Im working with Jamie Foxx and Fantasia, those are both good looks for me, Zaytoven told AllHipHop.com. “Right now Im working with almost everyone. As far as rappers I did a lot of work with Jeezy, I did a lot on Plies new album, and Big Bank Black video should be on 106 & Park in the next few days.”
The producer, born Xavier Dotson, also revealed that the Trap or Die II remix featuring Gucci Mane is official, despite it being leaked late last month.
It was a song I did with Jeezy Gucci and Jeezy ended up seeing each other and squashed the beef and thats when Gucci went in and put a verse over it for Trap or Die II, Zaytoven said of the track.
Gucci Mane was sentenced to a year in prison for violating the terms of his previous probation.
The rapper was incarcerated when his album The State Vs. Radric Davis dropped, on December 8.
Despite his incarceration, the album is currently the #1 Rap/Hip-Hop album in the country, moving over 89,000 units the first week out, with no promotion from Gucci Mane.
Gucci been locked up a lot of times since weve been doing this music. Every time he calls me, he talks to me like hes still out, Zaytoven told AllHipHop.com. He talks to me about what he wrote. Hes always in good spirits man. Its funny because every time hes in, he calls me like every other day, and he always has a lot of content, but when he gets out, he just starts from scratch, I guess its just a feeling, but he goes to a whole another song.”
Zaytoven has been working in the music industry for over a decade.
He was introduced to studio production by Hip-Hop legend JT the Bigga Figga, when he lived in the Bay Area.
