Interviews


makonnen-fader-3

ILOVEMAKONNEN made news earlier this year, opening up about his sexuality and coming out as gay. A month later, the subject was brought up to the Migos during an interview with Rolling Stone, where the Atlanta group who previously worked with ILOVEMAKONNEN responded with some puzzling comments. After much backlash on social media, the group released a statement.

Migos frontman Quavo later tried to clear up his comments in an interview with Billboard, but again left readers questioning his thoughts. Makonnen now gives FADER his first interview since coming out in January.

In the piece, the Atlanta-based artist (who now moved to Portland) speaks on his decision to come out, his mother’s phone blowing up after the announcement, moving to Portland, and the Migos’ recent questionable remarks. The 27-year-old also opens up for the first-time on signing to OVO when his hit-song “Tuesday” blew up, getting no proper support from the label, having no relationship with Drake during his tenure there, parting ways with the label and a confrontation with Drake at a VMAs afterparty.

Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated (and highly lucrative) Netflix comedy specials, Dave Chappelle appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. Dave discussed his return to stand-up, sharing the stage with LeBron James and why the flat Earth theory is baloney (shouts to Kyrie). He also touched on his many hilarious encounters with O.J. Simpson, which you’ll know all about if you’ve watched his Netflix specials (and if you haven’t, what are you doing with your life?).

rae sremmurd snoop dogg ggn

Rae Sremmurd recently stopped by Snoop Dogg’s GGN. During a typically smoked-out interview, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi chopped it up with Snoop about their journey from practising performing in their living room to breaking out with “No Flex Zone” to taking over the world with “Black Beatles.” “We had our little struggles too, we just didn’t choose to go about it in a negative way,” Jxmmi said. It wasn’t all serious, though; the Sremm boys also bonded with Uncle Snoop over their shared love of cornbread, Gucci shoes and real asses.

birdman

Rick Ross’ new album Rather You Than Me released at midnight, and one track listeners immediately gravitated to was the song “Idols Become Rivals.” On the song, the MMG rapper takes aim at Birdman over the Cash Money CEO’s history shady dealings and recent lawsuits filed against him by Lil’ Wayne.

I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne/ His entire life, he gave you what there was to gain / I watched this whole debacle, so I’m part to blame/ Last request, can all producers please get paid?,” raps Ross on the scathing record. Less than 24 hours after the song’s release, Birdman has decided to respond.
