Zaytoven has confirmed the rumors about a forthcoming Drake and Gucci Mane EP, The Sixers. In an interview with VladTv, Zaytoven explained "Drake surprised Gucci on the set of the "Guwop Home" video shoot, and being the prolific artist and networking machine that he is, Gucci proposed he and Drake do a project together. They began brainstorming on names for the project right then and there and came up with The Sixers — obviously because Drake is the 6 God and Gucci is from the Zone 6 section of Eastside Atlanta, which gets its name from the Atlanta Police Department's Patrol Zone 6," reports Stereogum. Zaytoven said:
"We had started recording songs that same day, I know that we got two songs concrete for sure songs that will go for the project. I don't know for sure it's going to be me and [Mike] doing the whole thing, if somebody else is gonna be a producer on it, or if I'll do one by myself and Mike do one by himself. We don't really know that for sure, just as long as the songs match up together."
Drake and Gucci previously worked on "Back On Road" from Everybody Looking, which was released just a few weeks ago.
Gucci has a few concert coming up, starting with a show on October 7th in Richmond, Virginia, followed by a an October 9th show in Houston, Texas. He will also perform at Beach Goth in Silverado, California, which takes place on October 22nd and 23rd. Drake and Future are currently on their Summer Sixteen tour.
