There’s been a rumor floating around for quite some time now that iLoveMakonnen is no longer signed to Drake’s OVO Sound outfit. He discusses working (or rather, not working) with the label in an interview with The FADER last year, and he subliminally shared his feelings with “Solo” — where he chants that he can grow his brand with out anyone’s help.
Nevertheless, the Atlanta-bred artist continues chugging along, releasing a new six-minute collaboration with Lil B, “Can’t Let It Go.” The song follows themes the two usually broach — people stealing their flows, dance moves and overall steez. Stepping back and comparing it to the rest of Makonnen’s recent catalog, this actually stands out. His sing-songy flow is delivered with high energy, and following the release of Drink More Water 6, he seems he’s dead set on improving, whether it’s with OVO Sound or not.
Makonnen and Lil B are set to tour at some point in 2016, so stay tuned for dates. Meanwhile, enjoy “Can’t Let It Go” below.
