Thursday – Big in 2015 – ILoveMakonnen
An American hip hop recording artist from Atlanta, Georgia. He rose to prominence in 2014 after having Drake remix his song “Tuesday”. Which has now been made his official debut single on Drakes OVO records.
In late August 2014, Makonnen was featured in XXL ’s The Come Up section, which focuses on blowing up artists. He later stated that he is not looking for a major label deal and instead plans to go touring and recording music independently: “I’m not too thirsty to sign a deal. Cause a label will really just take all your free music down and you have to be somebody’s bitch.” He is also working on a collaboration project with Mike Will, which is set for release before the end of 2014.
On September 1, 2014, it was announced that Makonnen, in a contradiction of his previous stance, had signed to Drake’s label OVO Sound, which is distributed by Warner Bros. Records.
ILoveMakonnen is today’s ‘BIG IN 15’
