ILoveMakonnen, or as I like to call him, the hip-hop Cyndi Lauper, is back with his first project in three years. ‘M3’ showcases Makonnen’s awesome pop/R&B sensibility within an Atlanta auto-crooner trap vibe. He experiments with sounds a bit on this record.
The first track, “Liquid Supply Daily, ” actually sounding more alt-rock than anything. “Not Ok” is an R&B flavored trap joint that instrumentally reminds me of PartyNextDoor or The Weeknd, and vocally sounds like Kyle or Lil Yachty. It is very catchy. Another highlight is “Spendin,’” which is stylistically similar to Makonnen’s first hit, “Tuesday.” “Spendin'” also features a great verse from Gucci Mane. I highly recommend checking out this EP! I am glad to know Makonnen is back!
