ILOVEMAKONNEN Quenches Your Thirst With ‘Drink More Water 5′ Mixtape
2014 was a heck of a year for Atlanta rapper ILOVEMAKONNEN. He struck pay-dirt when his club-ready single, "Tuesday," got a huge co-sign from Drake, who remixed the buzzworthy record, earning the pair a Grammy nomination. This essentially put the former hairdresser on the map. Now he's looking to follow-up on that success with his latest release, Drink More Water 5.
Running 11 tracks deep, the project features appearances from Migos, Rich the Kid, Rome Fortune and Fredo Santana, among others. The tape also includes previously released songs such as the title track and "Super Clean" as well as new bangers "Whip It (Remix)," "No Ma'am," and "Dodging 12 (Remix)." Staying in tune with the vibe that made him a radio favorite, Makonnen crafts a project full of catchy songs that are sonically pleasing to the ear.
While this tape should keep the OVO signee in the conversation and on various music playlists, Drink More Water 5 is only the appetizer. Makonnen says his album is on the way and should be released in summer 2015.
The "Don't Sell Molly No More" rapper recently announced his upcoming Loudest of the Loud tour, which will feature a stateside run, as well as stops in Europe. The tour kicks off at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on April 28 and will include stops in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C.; Chicago and California, among other cities. So be sure to grab a ticket if he's in your town.
