Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen

iLoveMakonnen on Jussie Smollett, His Album With Lil Peep & Losing Friends After Coming Out

Makonnen has much more music to make, but also a lot to say: about his own unlikely path; on homophobia in hip-hop, whether it’s gotten better in recent years, and if so, why; as well as the need for a new sense of community among queer people of color -- and the daily threat of abuse that’s faced by black LGBTQ Americans far less famous than Jussie Smollett.
