This is a different side of Desiigner.
The Brooklyn newcomer launched into the limelight when his street hit “Panda” went viral, ultimately earning him the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
While he’s often compared and criticized for sounding similar to Atlanta rapper Future, a video of him freestyling “pre-Panda” shows that Desiigner hasn’t always rapped with an inaudible southern drawl. This one-minute freestyle video features Desiigner aggressively rapping, which is similar to New York’s signature hip-hop style.
