Now a member of Epic records, Yo Gotti shows no signs of slowing down. During a recent interview with HHW‘s J. Bachelor, he discussed his upcoming mixtape with Jadakiss.
Me and Jada are workin’ on a project together, that sh*t’s hard, too. We actually began workin’ on it before I ended up doing my deal with Epic. We’re just figurin’ out how we wanna put it out and what we wanna do with it.
According to Gotti, the North-meets-South feel was specifically designed to shake things up.
I think it’ll be unique. When you first heard about it, you was probably like, ‘Gotti and Jadakiss?’ That’s the whole point of us doin’ it. I respect his music, he respect my music and we come from the same life and same culture. Musically, I think it’s a compliment and a challenge for us to do it, because we have two different styles.
But will it feature East Coast or Southern beats?
You’re gonna hear both; it’s well rounded. That’s the excitin’ sh*t about doin’ it. I know when n*ggas hear it, it’s gonna f*ck ‘em up.
With J. Cole and Kanye both dropping albums on June 18, HHW asked Gotti which disc he’d purchase if he could only cop one.
If I could buy one? Maaaan…that’s crazy. You know, I feel like I’d f*ck with Cole, because I run into him on the road and I see him, so just on some homeboy sh*t I’d have to support him. But I’m a fan of Kanye’s music, too. That’s probably one of the only artists that I ain’t never work with that I want to work with.
