UPDATE 6/29/16 10:00AM:
In a recent Periscope from producer Mike Dean, it looks like the “Timmy Turner” freestyle is serving as a hook on a new Desiigner track.
No word yet on when the full length track will be released, but if this snippet is any evidence, “Timmy Turner” could end up being another hit for the Panda man. It has also been rumored that Travis Scott contributed background vocals to the track, and it is likely to appear on Desiigner’s debut album, The Life of Desiigner.
Desiigner is having himself a G.O.O.D. year after the recent rise and success of “Panda”, and has recently been named one of the ten rapper for the 2016 XXL Freshman class. Along with an introduction video and participation in a class cypher, freshman deliver their own freestyle video to show off their rapping chops to a new audience.
Instead of continuing his rapid zombie-mumble he’s known for, Desiigner gets a little slower with a soothing melody, hook, and snap. The performance showcases a rare zen Desiigner, one that can channel all of that energy and dabbing into a ZooWap lullaby. The lyrics “Timmy, Timmy, Timmy Turner, he be wishing for a burner, to kill everybody walking” point to an Odd Future level of cartoonish violence behind the rapper-ready to turn Brooklyn into a fairy-wish hellscape.
