Album: The Life of Desiigner
Release Date: TBA
Desiigner has cut an unpredictable path since rocketing to fame behind "Panda," an out-of-nowhere Number One hit in 2016. He managed to transform an XXL freestyle into a wildly strange Top 40 hit ("Tiimmy Turner"), but hasn't seen much radio play on recent releases like "Outlet" and "Up." In a moment of frustration, the young Brooklyn rapper tweeted "Fuck NY radio" in April, earning the ire of powerful New York City DJs like Funkmaster Flex. With his major label debut on the way, Desiigner then visited local radio stations Hot 97 and Power 105.1 to apologize. In his interview with The Breakfast Club, the rapper sought to put the focus back on the exciting eclecticism of his upcoming LP. "I got all type of swag," Desiigner explained. "Y'all gonna see something real different – after this album, I'mma have everybody lookin' at me real different. … My music is great. No matter what. If you didn't know, y'all gonna see."
