ILOVEMAKONNEN Is Being Petty After Leaving Drake's OVO Sound

It was all good just a week ago... At least we thought.

Published April 25, 2016

ILOVEMAKONNEN left Drake’s OVO Sound recently but it seemed that the two camps were on good standing. The Atlanta rapper said in a statement that he was very thankful for Drizzy and his team did for what they did for his career and that there was “no beef to report. Well, now it looks like that’s all out the window.

A selfie video posted to’s YouTube page shows Makonnen taking shots at the Toronto native’s forthcoming album Views From the 6.

“What’s that ni**a album?” he said in the video. “What’s that dumb-ass album with the sky sh*t?”

Without prompting, in another video, the Drink More Water rapper explained why he left OVO in a more candid fashion.

“’Why’d you leave OVO?’ Because I was underweight now,” he said. “When I was overweight, they was f**king with me. That’s what OVO stands for, ‘Overweight Only.’” It’s unknown why ILOVEMAKONNEN decided to clarify the reasoning for his departure. Apparently there’s some unexpressed emotion he felt needed to be released before everything was said and done.
