It also includes the previously released “Drink More Water 5 Freestyle” and “Super Clean.” You can download it right here via LiveMixtapes, check out the tracklist after the jump, and also stream the whole thing after the jump.
Drake’s recent signee iLoveMakonnen (whom he collaborated with on “Tuesday”) is set to release his forthcoming project Drink More Water 5 any day now and to tease the release he is sharing “Super Clean.” “Super Clean” is co-produced by Phantom Power. Listen after the jump.
iLoveMakonnen teams up with Vampire Weekend’s frontman Ezra Koenig and NY spitter Despot for a remix of “Down 4 So Long” as part of Red Bull’s 20Before15 campaign. Listen to the unlikely collaboration after the jump.
iLoveMakonnen teams up with Atlanta’s premiere producer Mike Will for “Swerve” a new track that is featured on Makonnen’s newly re-released self-titled EP. Mike Will’s Ransom release is due out tomorrow. Peep “Swerve” after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, “Tuesday,” the song that dominated your various social networking feeds over the year was nominated for a Best Rap/Sung Collaboration Grammy. And to celebrate iLoveMakonnen appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to perform “Tuesday.” How fitting. Peep Makonnen’s live performance after the jump.
Makonnen’s “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” received an official remix from Wiz Khalifa but surely that wasn’t enough. Now, we’ve got Gucci Mane jumping on another remix. Again this is a surprise to many as Big Guwop is currently incarcerated. Listen to the new, updated “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” remix featuring a verse from Gucci after the jump.
Makonnen’s hit single “Tuesday”, which got the almighty Drake feature now receives its official video treatment. In the video Makonnen and Drake got the club… you guessed it… goin’ up. Check out the vid after the jump.
The iLoveMakonnen cosigns just keep piling on as another high profile artist is jumping on a remix. Wiz Khalifa jumps on Makonnen’s “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” and it’s pretty refreshing to hear a Makonnen track that isn’t “Tuesday” which we can all agree has been remixed straight into the grave at this point. Listen to Wiz on Mak’s “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” after the jump.
Ludacris has been on a roll lately. Bet you thought you’d never live to hear anyone say that again, huh? Well, it’s true. After dropping a killer freestyle to Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” (quite easily the best out of everyone who did a remix/freestyle) and Riff Raff’s “Tip Toe Wing In My Jawwdinz” Luda is back for more. This time he delivers a freestyle over iLoveMakonnen’s smash hit “Tuesday”. Listen after the jump.
Makonnen linked with a young band for this work. You wouldn’t know they’re young’uns by the sound of this union. The Waffle House after-club ballad turns into a grander rock and rap style quickly. Check it and get hype after the jump.
I hope this slowed down, hazy hip hop n’ b wave never crashes. Makonnen can transform typical trap hits into orchestral movements, timeless stripper bump. This song is the smallest sample of that, and just enough of the off-kilter melodies to make it worth a repeat. Listen after the jump.
ILoveMakonnen is giving Trinidad Jame$ the booster shot with his signature drone. The Atlanta artists are generating new heat with these impromptu collaborations. We also can’t get enough Mak Man. Listen to the stream after the jump.
After Drake remixed his summer heater to great success this week, Mak Man became much more popular for his catchy song “Club Going Up On A Tuesday.” He showed everyone his grind is real and now DJs in Atlanta are picking up on the buzz of his pimped out song. Makonnen also explains the notorious doll head that appears in all of his videos. Watch the interview after the jump.
Probably couldn’t be happier about this. iLoveMakonnen is an intriguing new artist whose-dripped out hustler howling turns up every one of his infectious songs. Drake is a wannabe crooner with notable rap skills and hits out the arse. We posted the video for “Tuesday” here if you want to check out the club lullaby. Drake remix after the jump.
