Makonnen keeps pumping out songs this year and this week was no exception. His latest “Keep It Low” is produced by Su$h! CEEJ and the volume should be the exact opposite of the title. Makonnen keeps his subject matter pretty similar with his relationship problems and drugs. Expect more from the Atlanta artist in the near future, especially since he was dropped by OVO.
Who saw this shit coming?! Especially right at this moment. Makonnen calls upon the internet legend, the Based God himself, Lil’ B. The northern Cali based rap artist has only accounted for a handful of features in the past year and a 63 track mixtape titled Thugged Out Pissed Off. Makonnen does his thing to start the track off and it just takes off from there. This shit actually bangs and is over 6 minutes long. Bump this in the whip and expect even more from the Based God in the very near future.
ILoveMakonnen releases Drink More Water 6 eight months after his killer EP ILoveMakonnen 2. With all the hype surrounding ILoveMakonnen 2, expectations were high for this album. Sticking to what he does best, Makonnen stacks Drink More Water 6 with his eccentric, unconventional and obscure trap/r&b/rap. Give it a listen below.
Destructo’s most recent drop comes in the form of “4Real.” The star studded single features the likes of iLoveMakonnen and Ty Dolla $ign and has radio hit written all over it. Both Ty and Makonnen vibe over Destructo’s production flawlessly and their deliveries compliment each other very nicely. Not only is this track radio friendly but it’s got enough bounce to be played in a club, expect to hear this more in the future. The song apparently took 6 months to finalize and was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Apple Radio show the other day. Listen to “4Real” below and enjoy.
After the release of his iLoveMakonnen2 EP last month, Red Dragon Makonnen is back with some heat. “Live For Real” does nothing but slap, it’s perfect for tonight’s party. Produced by Richie Souf this one is a typical Makonnen track, and I’m not complaining. Listen below.
