Zaytoven Talks Gucci Mane and V-Nasty's Mixtape; Working with Nicki Minaj


(AllHipHop News) Atlanta, Georgia based producer Zaytoven recently spoke with AllHipHop.com about his recent work on Gucci Mane and V-Nasty’s mixtape, BAYTL, as well as his upcoming work with Nicki Minaj.

The producer, who cut his teeth with JT the Bigga Figga in the Bay Area, said that he enjoyed working with V-Nasty.

“Well I really saw that as a great opportunity for me, cause I kinda got big in Atlanta, but I started doing my music in the Bay,” Zaytoven told AllHipHop.com.

“Gucci called me and was like, man we gonna do a project with V-Nasty and I hadn’t even heard of her, but he [Gucci Mane] was like ‘I might be one of their biggest fans,'” Zaytoven explained.

Zaytoven said the controversial Bay Area femcee reminded him of Gucci Mane.

“She remind me so much of Gucci Mane, I really rock with V-Nasty, I like how she get down, I like how she come across, I like her style, I like the controversy that she brings.”

Zaytoven also commented V-Nasty and collaborator Kreayshawn ‘s use of the N-word, which has drawn fierce criticism in rap circles.

“As far as the N-word, I don’t think that people realize that California is such a different world,” Zay said of V-Nasty. “Its not used for a certain race, its just a common word that everyone uses. Not for no disrespect or nothing like that. I understood what was going on…but I’m pretty sure she didn’t know it was going to be such a big deal.”

In other news, Zaytoven has been putting in work with YMCMB’s first lady, Nicki Minaj. The two have developed a chemistry according to Zay.

“I was working with Nicki from a long time ago, before she got super big, so its always good to work with people before they got super big,” Zaytoven told AllHipHop.com about his work with Nicki.

“Right now with Nicki, you know Nicki got a lot of character, so they really want to use that to her advantage and stuff that I do with Nicki is a little different…Its a little more weird or a little more funky, I guess you can say, not the typical Zaytoven sound.”

[Editors note: This interview was conducted days before the shooting death of Slim Dunkin, who was killed during a video shoot for Gucci and V-Nasty ‘s album BAYTL.]

    -Dude clearly is not from Cali cause that’s a lie. Let these lil white kids go to L.A. or Oakland and call some dudes the N-Word and see what happens

    • Breakdabars

      I’ve always wondered do all Cali people feel that way

      • WhiteboyfromRichmondCa

        It’s not all people. I’m a white boy and I grew up in the bay area. It wasn’t until 5th grade that I learned the “n-word” did not mean hello. I quit using that word after I learned about how people in the Deep South used it.

        Good or bad, people do really act like V Nasty in the East Bay at least. I dated a chick from 35th street in Oakland who acted just like how V Nasty either is or pretends to be, so I don’t doubt the authenticity of the swagger she promotes.

    • Scotty

      He’s from Frisco, but out here if the person is really from the town an really rocks, niggaz aint trippin off what you sayin, but if you comin from up the hill or somethin an you aint wit the shit..niggaz gunna get at you

  • Akwahman

    Only chick from that squad I even give my attention is lil debbie.. this bitch trash

  • strike_a_poseur

    Why are people humping this lame ass “rapper” V-Nasty. Her lyrics are garbage! Seriously! Get it together. There are so many other female rappers worthy of real acclaim and respect. Maybe hip hop is dead after all. #disappointed

  • GovtCheaze

    UNBELIEVABLE!  Really, enough is enough!!! Its disrespectful to our elders black and white   who now realize the harm the entire Jim Crow era created. Its a dishonor to our forefathers who marched, cried and died. She is blantaly disrespecting the black community and its Mc’s! But on the real can we really be that surprised when our leaders and elders called for the cease of degradation (Maya Angelou, Oprah, farrakhan etc) we took no heed in what they said.  When will someone with a real voice ( these so called signed MC’s) stand up?  Is your fortune really worth your soul.  God gave you the gift and the avenue, so you have a responsibility to speak to the climate of the time and its people.  Save yourself by helping save us as a human race.
