After being chosen for the XXL Freshman List, having “Panda” go platinum, and releasing his debut mixtape New English, Desiigner is having a hell of a year. As we all know, in the midst of that success came a lot of backlash. Not only for his placement on the Freshman List, but also for his Freshman Freestyle, which came across as a hook to everyone who heard it. That hook has transformed into a full song with the help of Mike Dean, and just as I feared, the cool African tribal vibes that were present in the original XXL video are completely stripped away in favor of a darker trap instrumental. It’s not bad, but at the end of the day it feels like more of the same from Desiigner. I know you’re curious, so give it a listen below.
