iLoveMakonnen Releases 10-Minute Freestyle Track: Listen

iLoveMakonnen uploaded a long and winding freestyle track to Soundcloud today (April 10). Called "I Remember Makonnen Freestyle," the track touches on a broad spectrum of iLoveMakonnen subject matter, including everything from his time spent hustling on the streets of Atlanta to the rapper's views on the 2016 presidential election. The track's accompanying image is a picture of a baby Makonnen wearing a backwards hat and smiling. Listen above. 

In March, the OVO stalwart released his Drink More Water 6 mixtape, and promised that an OVO posse album was in the works. Complex notes that Makonnen turns 27 on Tuesday, so the reflective slant of his newest track makes sense. Meanwhile, Makonnen mentor and basketball enthusiast Drake is set to release his new album, Views from the 6, on April 29.
