iLoveMakonnen began a rant earlier today by telling followers of a recent incident in which someone told him they would “fuck him” the next time they saw him. He ended it by coming out of the closet and revealing that he is gay, which is, according to Makonnen himself, “old news.”
Makonnen broke out as a solo star in 2014 when his regional hit, “Club Going Up On a Tuesday,” was remixed by Drake, re-released as “Tuesday,” and nominated for a Grammy. Makonnen would subsequently be signed to Drake’s OVO Sound label, but a handful of releases–none of which were his debut album–and no follow-up collaboration later, Makonnen and OVO parted ways. On Instagram, he had a conclusive message. “Thank you for letting me be myself.” Makonnen is the second artist of note to come out of the closet this week. Taylor Bennett, Chance The Rapper’s younger brother, revealed on Wednesday that he is bisexual.
