These 2 new tracks could appear on any of the 6 God‘s upcoming projects, which include a solo mixtape and collaboration projects with Kanye West and Gucci Mane. You can check out 2 short snippets of the new Drizzy Drake material after the jump!
According to the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA), Drake‘s VIEWS album reached triple Platinum status in the USA earlier this month on August 3rd.

VIEWS is also the first project this year to go 3x Platinum, so a big congratulations to the 6 God on this amazing achievement!
Yesterday, Drake brought out Eminem during his “Summer Sixteen” tour at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan to perform their “Forever” collaboration live.

Last month, Zaytoven hinted at a collaboration project from Drake and Gucci Mane that would include production from himself and Mike WiLL Made It.
In a new conversation with Vlad TV, the producer has now revealed more details about the joint project including who came up with the idea to do it.
Zaytoven also announced the tentative title for it, The 6ers, which is of course a nod to Drizzy being from the “6ix” and Gucci being from “Zone 6”.
Before moving onto another subject, the producer also confirmed that they have 2 songs completed so far. You can watch the interview after the jump below!
After discussing what it was like to direct Drake‘s upcoming “Child’s Play” music video, Spiff TV has now explained why we can look forward to the visual.
Speaking to SOHH, the Dominican/Puerto Rican video director called the forthcoming visual “legendary”, as well as revealed that him and Drizzy shot parts at a lot of different places:
“The ‘Child’s Play’ music video is going to be legend. Just remember that. Legendary. Legend. This was one of the longest videos I’ve ever shot. We shot it at a lot of locations and at a lot of different cities. Just legend. Remember that.”
Hopefully we will be seeing the 6 God‘s “Child’s Play” music video soon!
