iLoveMakonnen announces predictably named 5th mixtape, 'Drink More Water 5'

Posted on

March’s rap frenzy continues. Add iLoveMakonnen to the growing list—which also includes Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, and Action Bronson—of rhymesmiths putting out music this month. The Atlanta-based rapper has announced his fifth mixtape, the predictably named Drink More Water 5, will drop March 31. He also shared a new cut from the tape to celebrate.

Recently, Makonnen has released tracks with artists ranging from dance music producer DJ Carnage to Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. That knack for versatility will probably play a central part in Drink More Water 5.

The rapper also announced that frequent collaborators Key! and Sonny Digital will open up the Loudest of the Loud tour, which kicks off April 28 and will be Makonnen’s first headlining gig. Check out those dates and the “Drink More Water 5” freestyle below.
