Future and legendary producer Zaytoven come back together for BEASTMODE 2, the surprise sequel to its 2015 predecessor.
The 9-track project captures a great vibe that both hardcore Future fans and casual listeners can enjoy; it also keeps Future’s momentum going following his executive producing (and acting as the main artist for) last month’s Superfly soundtrack.
Zaytoven recently spoke with The FADER on coming back to the fold with the veteran Atlanta rapper:
“Well, pretty soon after we dropped Beast Mode in 2015, Future put up a picture that said Beast Mode 16, so we always had intents of it coming out back then. But we did the song “Used To This” — that was really a Beast Mode song. At the beginning of the song he said “beast mode” and we just took it off. That song started getting big, he went on tour with Drake, and we ended up not putting [the project] out.
When people would ask me what’s up with the project, I was always letting ‘em know that the music was done, we had more than enough music for it, it was just about when was the time to drop it. I think the reason why we’re dropping it now is because the songs we recently put out like “Walk On Minks” from the Superfly soundtrack, and especially “Mo Reala” from the Trapholizay album, have really sparked it. It made [Future] be like, “It’s time for us to drop now ‘cause they want to hear me and you.”
