Two years after signing to Drake’s OVO Sound imprint, ILoveMakonnen has cut ties with the label, reports Billboard.
Things seemed to be good back in March, when the Atlanta rapper/singer said he would be featured on an upcoming OVO compilation project. However, his latest project, Drink More Water 6, was released via Warner Bros. Records… without OVO Sound that same month.
Also in March, Makonnen told The FADER that his relationship with the label was simply that of an artist and imprint. “It’s cool,” he said. “They put out my music and stuff and we just keep it moving. Let them tell you their relationship with Makonnen. I’m just an artist, being an artist, and there’s only so much that I can do.”
Despite the departure from OVO, Makonnen is pushing forward. He’s set to join Lil B on an upcoming tour, dubbed “Red Dragon Based God Tour”.
