In 2014, the Atlanta-based iLoveMakonnen amassed accolade among hip-hop fans with his hit singles "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Tuesday." The latter of the two singles caught Drake's attention and earned Makonnen a spot on OVO Sound, as well as glittery feature by Drake himself.
Makonnen has released the following statement to Billboard: "I cannot thank OVO, 40, Oliver, Future & Mr. Morgan, enough for all that they have done for my career. No words can express how much I appreciate Drake for being a part of the success of Tuesday. I’m sure the haters will have something negative to say, but all in all my choice to be solely on Warner Bros Records was the right thing for me and for my best interest. Sorry there’s no beef to report, DRINK MORE WATER.”
Despite Makonnen's claims that he has no qualms about Drake or his former label mates, a series of deleted 2010 tweets by the Atlanta-rapper display more than a little distaste for the Toronto label exec. According MTV, the Makonnen claimed that the tweets came from a Twitter hack.
