ILoveMakonnen Reveals He is Gay, Fans & Peers Show Support


Over the weeked, popular R&B/Hip-Hop recording artist ILoveMakonnen revealed to the world that he is indeed gay. Shocking to many, Makkonen follows in the foot steps of Chance the Rapper’s little brother Taylor who recently revealed he was bi-sexual.

Been a longtime since we heard anything new from the Georgia recording artist whose influences included Atlanta greats Gucci Mane, Father, and Outkast. ILoVWMakkonen, took to twitter last night and instagram to admit his sexuality.

In the three twitter posts, ILoveMakonnen tweeted the following revealation:

Since revealing his sexual preference, Makonnen has been bumbarred with love and support from his fans with positive social media posts. Not only fans came to the support of the ATL recording artist but his Hip-Hop peers like Rae Shremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi and ASAP-affiliate Danco James sent out the following tweets backing Makkonen.

Ilovemakonnen was originally signed to Drake’s OVO imprint upon releasing his solo smash hit, “Tuesday”. However, leading into the Summer of 2016, the ATL crooner was left stranded by his OVO brothern and it’s Warner Bros imprint. His debut album was put on hitaus for the time being for unbeknownst reasons.

Many would look at Makonnen’s coming out party as a publicity stunt in order for the recording artist to reconnect with fans and regain popularity. Since his debut, Makkonen has been unable to follow up the success from an R&B/Hip-Hop front; however, crafted a lane of popularity in the EDM circuit.

Coming out of the closet would appear unexpected from the Red Dragon but not completely unaware. Through his non-chalant attitude during interviews and open ridicule to claimes of being gay, ILoveMakkonen left little to question about originally proclaimed rumors of him interested in men.
