Desiigner stopped by the UK radio station Kiss FM on Monday night to chop it up about his music, his relationship with Kanye West, and the success of “Panda.” The real news came at the end of the interview, however, when he launched into one of his wild, motor mouth freestyles. In fact, he raps so fast during the performance that it’s hard to catch exactly what he’s saying. We saw a similar performance from him during his appearance with Tim Westwood back in April. These aggressive freestyles are sure to show some of the haters that the G.O.O.D. Music rapper has more up his sleeve than goofy dancing and Future trolling.
While he was there, he also revealed that his debut album will be titled Life of Desiigner, which probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone who follows him on Twitter. Although he was mum about any other details surrounding the project, at least we know that the wheels are in motion for it.
“Panda” has taken the world by storm. It conquered the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month, dethroning Rihanna’s “Work” and holding Drake’s “One Dance” off for two weeks. Although he inspired some Twitter rage when he dropped the song’s video and it didn’t feature any actual pandas, Desiigner has gone on to nab a performance slot at Hot 97’s Summer Jam and even inspire a mashup of President Obama rapping along to his hit. With Life of Desiigner apparently in the works and some solid rapping skills finally starting to show themselves over the “Panda” hype, it’s certainly a good time to be Desiigner.
