The Atlanta chillwave-rap weirdo ILoveMakonnen is one of the most interesting new voices we’ve heard in rap in a long time. His I Love Makonnen EP really should’ve been Mixtape Of The Week months ago, if I hadn’t slept on it, and he’s now poised for something like stardom, now that Drake has remixed his “Tuesday” and signed him to OVO Sound. Now Andy Milonakis, the former MTV star and 3 Loco member, has made a video for his I Love Makonnen EP track “Too Much.” Milonakis directed the video, and he stars in it, made up like the mannequin head from the EP cover. The low-budget, absurdist video also stars a lady in a bikini and a big box of Skittles. Watch it and read some words from Milonakis below.
I spoke to Makonnen about doing a video to one of his songs, he gave me the green light. Not sure he expected a full music video, but I hope he is pleased with the outcome. I have permission from IloveMakonnen to use his song for this original concept video.
