Desiigner’s abilities and style definitely aren’t for everybody, but the “Panda” artist certainly puts all his energy into his art. Currently promoting his new single “Outlet,” Desiigner stopped by the Hot 97 studios for a sitdown with Funkmaster Flex. As animated as ever, the young NYC talent delved into topics ranging from major labels to connecting with Kanye West to the controversies with Future. Most significantly, Desiigner decided to serve up a flurry of bars for a special acapella freestyle session, completely devoid of any auto-tune or other types of studio tricks. Even if you weren’t a fan of songs like “Tiimmy Turner,” you might be pleasantly surprised by the Desiigner that showed up for these verses.
