ILOVEMAKONNEN Talks About Working With Drake
ILOVEMAKONNEN already had his “Nothing Was The Same” moment. The Atlanta singer/rapper/songwriter was in his room when he found out that Drake remixed his “Club Going Up On A Tuesday” and it immediately led to national attention. After making music with plenty of Atlanta’s current hitmakers, he’s now one of the princes of Atlanta’s new wave and he completely gets it.
During his time in New York, the singer sat down with Miss Info at HOT 97 and detailed how Gucci Mane inspired him to take his music more seriously, how his early work with with the likes of Metro Boomin’, Sonny Digital & Mike WiLL Made It set the ground work for his upcoming EP, how he badly wants to be a big pop star and the rather interesting tale of how he discovered Adele while sitting on house arrest.
