Desiigner brought a torrent of energy to the Wendy Williams stage during his appearance on the daytime talk show. The 19-year-old Brooklyn native hit Number One with his debut single “Panda.”
Desiigner jumped and flailed around the stage. The hyper MC was joined by a hype man sporting a gigantic panda head who dabbed and danced behind Desiigner throughout the performance. The rapper spoke with Williams about his success and detailed his plans for the future, including movies, an album, tours and merchandise.
Kanye West — who signed Desiigner to his GOOD Music label and featured him prominently on own album The Life of Pablo — is the force inspiring him to explore art from “every creative angle,” according to the rapper. West made a cameo in the “Panda” video, hopping into a white BMW at the end of the clip. Soon after, Desiigner made his television debut on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
