Singer iLoveMakonnen Comes Out As Gay

By Nick Delmacy | Posted Jan 20 2017 | 8 Comments  


Very early this morning, Makonnen Sheran—better known as the rapper iLoveMakonnen—announced on Twitter that he is gay.

Makonnen refers to the revelation as “old news,” and indeed in a New York Times profile published in April 2015, Makonnen seemed to allude to that he was queer:

“The rap world thinks I’m gay,” he said. “A lot of people out there do. They think I’m a homosexual, which is not a problem. I don’t want to say I’m gay, I’m straight, I’m bisexual or any of that, because that’s just. …” he said, trailing off. “Who cares? All that’s doing is dividing us.”

Well anyway, now we know. Makonnen’s most recent mixtape, a collaboration with the producer Danny Wolf titled Red Trap Dragon, was released last August.

    Wonder if some folks had to do some of that soul searching stuff on whether or not they wanted to delete Tuesday off their playlist.

    His career fizzled when those Tweets of him saying that he is better than n-words because he is Filipino emerged. His stuff has already been off their playlists. In addition, most people have already known that he is gay.
