People Keep Remixing Desiigner’s 2016 XXL Freshman Freestyle
A week and a half ago, XXL revealed that Desiigner made the cut for its 2016 freshman class. The Brooklyn artist's freshman freestyle is so popular that it's now getting remixed by a myriad of producers across the nation.
Desiigner's voice is a bit mumbled in his delivery, but the lyrics are likely, "Timmy Timmy Timmy Turner/He be wishin' for a burner/To kill everybody walkin'/You know that his soul on the furnace/Fine bitch on BET/Hottie why aren't you playin' on BET?/Wylin' for wallet/Kill everybody walkin'/You know that his soul on the furnace."
SoundCloud accounts including KingNamedTutt, Natsu Fuji, K-Twist, $ad Alpha and C-Town Productions each applied their distinctive sounds to the brief a capella verse from Desiigner. From mellow, cloudy instrumentals to high-energy, turn-up beats, these remixes cover a lot of ground.
If you're thirsting for more music from the 18-year-old rising star, you won't have to wait long: two days ago, Desiigner unveiled the title of his highly anticipated forthcoming mixtape. The "Panda" rapper is calling his new project "New English," and one of its tracks will feature fellow G.O.O.D. music artist Pusha T. The up-and-comer has gotten a lot of shit for sounding similar to Future, and this new body of work gives him a chance to separate himself, musically.
You can listen to five of these remixes below via various producers' SoundCloud pages. The final remix is a hilarious parody someone made -- complete with references to Ian Connor and Donald Trump.
