iLoveMakonnen has been laying low for the most part but one of his tweets from Monday night (November 8) broke through and went viral. The “Tuesday” artist jokingly proclaimed that he started “this gay shit” in music.

“I started this gay shit,” he wrote. 

The tweet has compiled over 18,000 likes and got a rile out of fans who flooded his replies with memes and photos ranging from Lil Nas X to Soulja Boy looking for confirmation and an angry Boosie Badazz.

“You walked so Lil Nas X could run,” one person responded.

iLoveMakonnen broke through in 2014 with his signature hit “Tuesday” featuring a guest appearance from Drake which peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. He later came out as openly gay in early 2017.

On October 29, Makonnen unleashed his Monster in the Woods EP boasting six tracks. He also delivered his My Parade album in April where he recruited Payday and Lil B to help power the effort.

The 32-year-old admitted that him being on Twitter while on mushrooms may have not been the best idea as he continued to rant.

“Shouts out to all my gays , I love u I see u and I am with u,” Makonnen said. “Im always with u, I wouldn’t be who I am today without u. Know that trust and believe anything is possible! I am sending u love love love!”
