Atlanta, Georgia-based producer Zaytoven has succeeded in the music industry for over a decade. Best known for being Gucci Mane’s longtime in-house producer, Zay has supplied tracks for Usher, Young Jeezy and Twista. The Bay Area native is planning his first book, From A to Zay: An Indie Guide on Music Production. The work, intended for industry hopefuls, is planned for spring release.

“I had no manager, no relationships, wasn’t an in-house producer, just coming fresh from the streets of California to Atlanta to build relationships,” Zaytoven told, on his own education. From there, Zay built relationships with artists, studios and managers to become one of the top producers in the Southeast.

Zaytoven is said to be a confirmed producer on upcoming albums from Jeezy, Yo Gotti and Lil Scrappy.
