We were all hoodwinked, bamboozled and led astray when it was revealed Desiigner and not Future was behind that “Panda” song. And that it was him again on Kanye’s “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 2.” See, that one was even more frustrating because Future worked with Kanye on “I Won (Trophies),” so it was naturally assumed it was Future returning the love on T.L.O.P. But nope, freakin’ Desiigner.
The 18-year-old Brooklyn rapper isn’t the first to ride someone else’s wave and he won’t be the last. There’s always been swagger jacking in rap. Sometimes rappers get away with it, and sometimes they don’t. I don’t know if Desiigner will have a legit career being Angelous to Future’s Jay Z as only time will tell, but just knowing this dude is trying to exist in a world where Future is currently king is comical. About as comical as these memes highlighting what it’ll be like when Future and Desiigner meet. Tidbit: Desiigner’s never been to Atlanta before. Ever. Ugh.
