Back in 2016, news broke that iLoveMakonnen was no longer apart of Drake’s OVO label. When Makonnen left there were no reports of bad blood between the two…until now!
According to XXLMAG, Makonnen isn’t here for Drake and he claims Drake threatened to put the paws on him at a party when he ran into him at a party back in September.
“I was threatened by others,” he remembers. “Someone I so-called look up to. Saying, ‘We gon fuck you up the next time we see you.’ And I was like, ‘Let me stop being me.’ I started to go back to, ‘I’m just gonna go eat anything, and just be hiding myself and shit.’ And then I was like, ‘No! I’m not doing that no more! I don’t give a fuck! I’m — me.’ And that’s what led me to coming out and shit.
“It was in the middle of the goddamn afterparty at the Up&Down club,” he continues. “Everybody that was in there was in there. I’m in here around these Vanguard Awards and I’m accepted and I took pictures with Chainsmokers and G-Eazy and everybody and we all friends. And I’m here in the middle of the floor, no security, and they coming and I just step to the side and they see me and stop and the biggest motherfucker in the game goes, woo woo woo, ‘Next time I’ma fuck you up!’”
Makonnen claims that dude was Drake.
“Around all that security, the dude that’s doing it — we have a platinum-selling record together! The guy! The leader of the crew!”
Makonnen also talked about Migos’ comments about him coming out the closet and says they only apologized to “save face.” “And now you gotta come back with some sorry ass excuse. Nah,” he says. “That’s only cause you got the #1 record and you didn’t wanna fuck it up.”
