Following several well-received performances at South by Southwest in Austin last week, Atlanta rap sensation ILOVEMAKONNEN has announced the release of a new mixtape in advance of his forthcoming first headlining tour.
Drink More Water 5 will be unveiled on March 31st and, as you might have surmised, it is his fifth mixtape. There’s little further advance info on the release, but he has offered fans a taste via the “Drink More Water 5 Freestyle” on his Soundcloud page. His official debut album is expected to drop this summer on Drake’s OVO label.
Meanwhile, ILOVEMAKONNEN has tapped fellow Atlantans Key! And Sonny Digital to open his Loudest of the Loud tour, which kicks off April 28th with an already sold-out show at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. Dates at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg (April 29), Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre (May 15) and San Francisco’s The Independent (May 16) have also sold out well in advance.
