Desiigner seems to be on a roll when it comes to releasing music. On Monday night, the Brooklyn rapper delivered “Up” and “Thank God I Got It,” along with “Holy Ghost,” which appeared on his SoundCloud a few weeks ago.
“Up” is a piano-driven jam with a chorus-sung “Turn the club up” mantra riding its bookends. Desiigner’s wobbly Auto-tuned vocals float over the whole thing: “I’mma get rich, get rich / And I be living’ right up / Just like the city I hold down / I’mma bring it right up.”
Meanwhile, “Thank God I Got It” is slightly more menacing, with a wind flute blowing out a minor-keyed loop for Desiigner to spit his monotoned rap. The song finally breaks character halfway through, when Desiigner swirls in his signature ad-libs (“blllllah!” “get, get, get!!”) along with a beat change-up and more melodic singing.
