Is it cool to say Makonnen is that guy right now? The Atlanta rapper/singer/based disciple has been collecting co-signs from the likes of Travi$ Scott and Miley Cyrus and drops a new song or video or EP pretty much every day. His latest hazy bummed out balled shows internet fame hasn't altered Makonnen's style: "Down 4 So Long" is Makonnen at his most dejected, remembering friends he has lost and partners that don't care about him anymore. But the lyrics I've been down for so long / And I've been keeping it too real / Yeah I've been keeping it too real attempt to rise above the melancholy. You can't keep a good Makonnen down.
