Big Makk’s management posthumously release ‘The Makk Tape’ LP
Last Sunday, August 28, 25-year-old producer Samisoni Koroitamudu was tragically killed in a car accident in Florida. Under the name Big Makk, Koroitamudu was a burgeoning trap and hip hop producer, boasting releases on labels such as Mad Decent and Main Course. Today, September 6, Big Makk intended to put out an LP entitled The Makk Tape, which his management has decided to release as planned. Alongside the posthumous release, Koroitamudu’s management delivered the following message:
“Today was the day Sam (aka BIG MAKK) was going to release this LP titled “THE MAKK TAPE”. For those that didn’t know Sam, he had 3 loves in his life; His Family/Friends, His Music, & His Shoes (mainly Vans). We also know there is nothing more he would have wanted than for everyone to listen and share this music as was planned. We miss you Sam and we couldn’t think of a better way to honor your beautiful soul than to have your music live on forever.
You can listen for free on Soundcloud & Spotify as well as purchase on iTunes. All proceeds of this music will go to benefit BIG MAKK”s family.
Spanning eight tracks in total, The Makk Tape sees Big Makk shift between cerebral, aggressive trap productions like “IMMA ROCK” and “TOP BEAT,” and smoother hip hop instrumentals such as “LIBDAM” and the wistful “LOVE LOST.” Over the course of the album, Big Makk showcased his ability to masterfully intertwine elements of producers like Mr. Carmack and Rustie, while also inserting his unique, personal style to his compositions. His success in putting forth a fresh, cohesive album so early in his career reiterates the amount of potential he had as an artist. The Makk Tape simultaneously serves as a fitting celebration of Koroitamadu’s life work, and as a reminder of how untimely his death was.
Rest in peace, Sam.
