ILoveMakonnen Pops Off His One-Take Freestyle Series With New Song “Don’t Be Hating On Makonnen”
ILoveMakonnen kicks off his new weekly freestyle series—in which he releases all one-take freestyles—with "Don't Be Hating On Makonnen." Over smooth production, Makonnen raps about being done wrong and bouncing back.
"Can I catch that soundbite/For the last two years wonder who these niggas sound like/Now they acting like they don't know me/I seen some pictures, niggas was looking like homies/Why are they so fake/I don't even know why, can't speak that name," he raps.
"Don't Be Hating On Makonnen" comes a few weeks after Makonnen linked up with Rae Sremmurd and Mike WiLL Made-It for the track "Love." Both records followed up the "Tuesday" rapper's project Fun Summer 17, which dropped a couple of months ago.
Speaking in an interview with Rap-Up, Makonnen spoke about his collaborations with Lil B, Lil Peep, Mike Will and his new project that he's working on.
"I’ve just been taking my time with [the new project]. I’m usually in the studio freestyling," Makonnen said. "That’s how I work on all my songs, just to be really in the moment. But now, I’ve been doing a lot of freestyling and coming back and taking my time with the music, cleaning it up, and making each lyric make sense. I just feel like this project is going to still be Makonnen, but it’s Makonnen with him having time on his hands again."
