iLoveMakonnen to drop new mixtape on March 31, announces dates with Key! and Sonny Digital

How do you follow up a Grammy nomination for one of the best tracks known to humankind? For some, it’d be getting someone like, I don’t know, Pharrell on the boards. But for Makonnen, it’s through a new freestyle. Similar to when he taught us how to WHIP IT on the first track of his last Drink More Water mixtape, his latest freestyle kicks off the newest edition of the series with weird, hazy run-ons and feeling-his-way rhyme schemes. He’s fucking with some new pills from China, mane!

Check out the track below, and look for Drink More Water 5 on March 31.

iLoveMakonnen also plans to release his proper debut later this year. No tracklist confirmations yet, but he’s already been in the studio with the likes of Drake, Rihanna, DJ Mustard, Diplo, and Skrillex. Before that drops, you can check him out on tour, alongside Key! and Sonny Digital.
