Published September 16, 2015

iLoveMakonnen is gearing to release his debut album in 2015, and he might’ve hinted at when it’s coming out.

During an interview with DJ Booth at Fool’s Gold Day Off in Brooklyn, the OVO Sound signee revealed that he’s working on an EP/album ready for release in October. “It’s just me, and I got production from like Sonny Digital,” he says. “It’s a lot more of my music. I’ve been playing the keyboard on there and stuff, making the soundtrack for the times.”

He also shared who he's been in the studio with lately. “It’s young producers like Danny Wolf and Richie Souf. I’m working with CEEJ from Two-9. Retro Su$h!, he got some beats for me. [Just] trying to make some new music with some of the new artists out.”

So there you have it. Let’s hope the date sticks and we get some new Makonnen very soon.
