What does Desiigner do after spending 48 hours in pokey? Go Gucci shopping, of course. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper wasn’t going to let a stint in jail spoil his weekend.
On Saturday (Sept. 10), after leaving his arraignment on drugs and weapons charges stemming from his road rage incident on Thursday (Sept. 8), Desiigner headed to the Gucci store to do some retail therapy. TMZ caught up with the Brooklyn native and his labelmate, Tyga, who spent thousands of dollars at the luxury store.
While Tyga chilled in the background, the “Panda” rapper showed off dozens of bags filled Gucci merchandise. “It’s called knowing your worth, everybody can get this,” he said of his shopping spree. “They gotta know their dream, know their worth.”
When the cameraman asked Desiigner how he felt being on a list of Brooklyn rappers – like Troy Ave and Bobby Shmurda – who face legal trouble, the rapper quickly shut down the cameraman’s trolling.
“You gotta stay humble and know your worth, I know I ain’t supposed to be in there (jail), that ain’t the place for me,” he said. “I’m here to make that art and be entertaining for trillions of planets.”
Meanwhile, Desiigner’s legal team called the rapper’s recent arrest bogus and a crude attempt to block a young man’s success.
“It’s time to embrace the true narrative of a young black man enjoying his success and working hard for a prosperous career,” they told TMZ.
