When it comes to iLoveMakonnen, it’s no secret we haven’t been the biggest fans.* Sure, he gets off a catchy melody here and there, but overall, I’ve yet to hear what the hype is (was?) about.
This joint right here, tho? This is nice! Maybe it’s Makonnen coming into his own. Maybe I’m just now catching on to whatever Drake and others see in him. Or, maybe—and this is where I’m playing my money—it’s the presence of one Tunji Ige.
Since his first appearance at the DopeHouse with “Day 2 Day” in 2014, the Philly native has been batting a thousand. And I’m beginning to think it’s impossible for Ige, Heaven In Stereo, Noah Breakfast, and company to produce a weak record.
Vibe out to “Don’t Do Too Much” below.
