ILoveMakonnen And OVO Sound Part Ways Just Weeks After New Album
Information is surfacing that ILoveMakonnen is no longer a member of the OVO Sound crew.
While the Atlanta bred trap rapper has been somewhat quiet about the move to go solo, Billboard broke news via their sources close to the situation.
In September of 2014, ILoveMakonnen took the Hip-Hop world by storm with his song “Tuesday” that featured Drake.
Drake has been mum on the topic of Makonnen over the past year, never commenting publicly on the Drink More Water 6 album released just a few weeks ago via Warner/OVO Sound.
Recently iLoveMakonnen talked about the possibility of an OVO Sound Group Album and Drake’s ‘Views From The 6’
Last month in Hollywood, Makonnen performed songs from the new album but made no mention of Drake or OVO sound.
“It’s been talked about. But I don’t know. Schedules and sh*t got to line up. I’m down. Maybe in the fall or winter,” Makonnen said. “Everybody has so many different styles, and it’s really on tapping into which style people want. You can do the hard songs and the soft songs. You want to give the perfect balance.”
In the mean time ILoveMakonnen is set to hit the road with Bay Area icon Lil B as the rapper made the announcement via his IG page.
