It is only fitting that ILOVEMAKONNEN signs a record deal on a Tuesday. The Atlanta-based rapper came out of nowhere with club anthem “Going Up on a Tuesday” produced by Sonny Digital that took over the internet. The song was receiving heavy buzz in the A, but once Drake laid a verse it was all over. The 25-year-old’s career has skyrocketed once Drizzy surprised Mak with a verse, taking the record from the local stage to the global stage.
Now Drake signed ILOVEMAKONNEN to his OVO label making him the fifth edition in a suddenly loaded label. Including this signing Drake now has PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, OB O’Brien on the squad. They better have an OVO collab tape in the works. So all those who wondered whether ILOVEMAKONNEN would be a one hit wonder now know that he might just be here to stay with Drake on his team, look what a Drake cosign has done already for PARTYNEXTDOOR and The Weeknd if you don’t believe me. This signing also serves a lesson to all artists out there that if you keep grinding someone will find you. Success and nothing less Mak.
