Makonnen Sheran, aka ILoveMakonnen, is the latest signing to October’s Very Own, the label spearheaded by Drake.

The Atlanta-based emcee and producer caught a lot of attention with the release earlier this year of his self-titled EP, which featured the buzz tracks "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Club Goin Up On a Tuesday." The latter was a big hit with Drake in particular, with the Canadian rapper remixing the track on Aug. 12 with an additional verse.
