ILOVEMAKONNEN

ILOVEMAKONNEN has spoken out at length, for the first time he came out as gay. Also for the first time since those awkward statements Migos made about him.

The Migos found themselves in a whirl of controversy after questioning the trap rap credibility of ILoveMakonnen, who recently hopped out the closet. The trio posted an obligatory apology on Twitter. 

The artist formerly known as ILoveMakonnen dropped a bombshell on Twitter Thursday night. He is gay.

In recent months, a rising Atlanta artist operating under the name 24hrs garnered a buzz online while keeping his identity unknown. The release of the visual for “Back For Me” revealed that he and Royce Rizzy of Privateclub Records are one and the same.

It’s a party whenever Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa connect. This time it’s on a track by the New Orleans rap veteran titled “You In Mind.”

With PARTYNEXTDOOR 3 (P3) releasing in one week’s time (Aug. 12), PARTYNEXTDOOR offers up “Don’t Do It For You No More” for your enjoyment.

On Friday (July 1), Snoop Dogg will deliver his 14th studio album Coolaid, from which he’s already released a Jeremih-assisted song called “Point Seen Money Gone” and “Kush Ups,” featuring Wiz Khalifa.

This edition of Wired Tracks is all about artists making their grand return. In this case, Miguel and Kid Cudi both treated fans to new material that should excite fans anxiously awaiting their next major release.

ILoveMakonnen hinted at quitting the rap game and it sounds like he may need to seriously consider.

With summer just around the corner, a handful of songs are sure to reign supreme throughout the season (Drake’s “One Dance, anyone?), but there’s no clearcut dominant rap record. But in comes Wiz Khalifa with a potential anthem titled “Pull Up,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert.

Nipsey Hussle has found a collaborative groove with eclectic Atlanta rapper Young Thug, and it shows on his new track “I Do This,” also featuring Mozzy.

Always slick with the wordplay, Harlem rap veteran Smoke DZA displays his sharp penmanship on a new track titled “Opera.”
