Whenever ILoveMakonnen finishes his debut album, he's going to have some serious guest features. Drake, Rihanna and Snoop Dogg have been been already confirmed, and Makonnen just told Paper Mag that he's completed sessions with Kanye West and Rick Rubin.
Makonnen also breaks down his process for creating music. The secret is to live your life, then use that experience.
"I go out, party, hang out with people with different lives [than me]. Then I go back to my studio, play some beats, smoke some weed, and just reminisce over all that I saw in a freestyle. I enjoy nature -- I like to go out and see the outdoors and see the leaves. I try not to go into other peoples' ideas and follow what they're doing. When I'm creating, I want to keep it fresh and pure [of influence from others]."
