iLoveMakonnen has just released three new tunes and the internet is melting. Having only just released his mixtape Drink More Water 6, the 26-year-old OVO signee has continued to pour out fresh music. He’s on a roll.
We were recently given hints:
Birthday on Tuesday I got gifts for u starting with I remember Makonnen
— Gifting Makonnen (@iLoveMakonnen5D) April 10, 2016
And now, these “gifts” have just been delivered to us via SoundCloud. Take a look at the three mixes below.
1. ‘I Remember Makonnen’: a 10-minute introspective freestyle that reflects on the musician’s journey from family and drugs to his eventual record deal signing. A pensive stream of consciousness of sorts.
2. ‘Stay With me Tonight’: a wistful trap-resembling, synth-inducing yearning for a lover. His vocals reign supreme on this one.
3. ‘Swimming In the Money’: an aggressive, self-asserted mix co-produced with DJ Spinz and Danny Wolf.
iLoveMakonnen seems to churning out music at an unstoppable rate. But we approve.
