When FADER profiled iLoveMakonnen in F94, he told Duncan Cooper that classmates used to make fun of the bizarre mannequin heads he would paint in cosmetology school. "I'm going to make these dolls famous," he told them. "I'm going to take them all over the world." He posted imaginary tour schedules to his now-defunct Newness blog, while tethered to his bedroom on house arrest. Years later, the Loudest of the Loud tour is a start: Makonnen's first headlining tour will ride east to west this April, with special guests joining along the way. We hope he dives deep for the setlist.
