The almost 12-minute long set finds Zaytoven leading a live band through two tracks from Future‘s Beast Mode — “Lay Up” and “Peacoat” — as well as “Mo Reala,” which is from his very own album Trapholizay. The group includes Neil Garrard (guitar); Elena Pinderhughes (flute); DJ Spinz (DJ); and Bernard “TreWay” Lambert (drums).
Turns that Zaytoven’s performance came about after Future didn’t show up to NPR for his own Tiny Desk performance. The producer and his band were going to accompany the Atlanta rapper through his set (which would’ve included “Mask Off”) but he never showed.
