AllMusic Review by

Atlanta-based hip-hop producer I Love Makonnen originally self-released his self-titled debut online in July of 2014, eventually grabbing the attention of pop stars for his easygoing delivery and murky, drugged-out beats. Miley Cyrus raved about Makonnen on social media and Drake contacted the producer about reworking his tune "Club Goin' Up on a Tuesday," turning in a remixed collaborative version (with the title shortened to just "Tuesday") days later. "Tuesday" rose to the top of the charts, eventually being nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2014 Grammy Awards. This wide-scale re-release of Makonnen's debut EP includes seven tracks, the updated Drake-collaborative version of "Tuesday," the drug-dealing anthem "I Don't Sell Molly No More," and the trap-flavored tunes "Look at Wrist" and "Doubted," both featuring cameos from Key!
