Back in 2014, Drake signed iLoveMakonnen on the heels of the (now forgotten?!) “Tuesday” joint.
But as Makonnen has been blasting Drizzy on Twitter, the relationship has understandably so gone a bit sour, more distancing confirmed in December, and OVO not being listed anywhere on his ‘Drink More Water 6’ project.
Now, an OVO rep who spoke to Inverse confirms that Makonnen is no longer on the imprint. His loss… considering no one would know who he was if it weren’t for Drake. Anyway… moving on.
So this brings us to his new track, “Can’t Let It Go.” This likely has nothing to do with the beef with the man who made him famous, but it does have him collaborating with Lil B. Who needs Drake on your side when you’ve got THE BASED GOD.
THANK U EVERYONE AND U ARE ALL WELCOME!
