Video: Noisey Music Atlanta – Bizarre World of Makonnen – Episode 7


The new wave of Atlanta stretches beyond the reach of Gucci Mane. The last year has seen the rise of a more alternative and bizarre sound, including Awful Records with a guy named iLoveMakonnen at the forefront. His smash single ‘Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday’ was remixed by Drake after its release last summer, and went on to be nominated for a Grammy. Since then, he’s released songs with Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane and more. In episode 7 of Noisey Atlanta, Thomas enters Makonnen’s strange world, which is driven by peace, love, and mushrooms. Also take a look at the dates for Makonnen’s new Loudest of The Loud tour kicking off on February 27th below.
