Red Trap Dragon
Makonnen has followed up his Drink More Water 6 mixtape from earlier this year with a brand new collaboration with Danny Wolf. Red Trap Dragon finds the rapper working with Wolf on all 8 of its tracks, including the previously released "Sounds Like Who?" For those unfamiliar, Danny is responsible for the production on fan favorites like "Trust Me Danny" and "Black Mamba Freestyle."
Rich The Kid & iLoveMakonnen
After debuting their first song together, "Workin It," Rich The Kid and ILoveMakonnen promised a full EP would follow, Whip It. However the EP suffered many a delay, as you've been witness too, although Rich and Makonnen did drop a few more leaks along the way. Finally, the two decided to release the tape on Thanksgiving Day, as a little thank you to fans. As if Makonnen's recent iLoveMakonnen 2 EP wasn't enough.
Drink More Water 5
Get hydrated with iLoveMakonnen's newest mixtape, Drink More Water 5. Following its four excellent predecessors, this one features the highest profile features, with Migos, Rich The Kid, Gucci Mane, Rome Fortune, Fredo Santana, Yung Gleesh and Two-9's Ceej all showing upo to assist the OVO signee.
Recently, Atlanta -- which was already the arguably the weirdest city in hip-hop -- has gotten even weirder thanks to a gaggle of artists that includes Key!, Father, OG Maco and iLoveMakonnen. Their loose brand of drugged-up, zonked-out atmospheric trap, which is just starting to take off in popularity, had a predecessor in the music of Rome Fortune, another ATLien.
I Love Makonnen EP
Atlanta has birthed plenty of unique hip hop artists, including the likes of Outkast, T.I., Future, and Young Thug. Makonnen is yet another new creative force, with a jarring new sound that owes itself to bedroom pop as much as it does to New Atlanta's highly collaborative trap scene. Often opting for a ghostly falsetto, Makonnen introduces a vocal style hinted at by contemporaries like Young Thug, but while Thugger always sounds like a rapper experimenting with melody, Makonnen is a songwriter first.
