Desiigner Wants His Children to Talk Just Like Him
Most people would hope their child's first words will be something stereotypically simple and cute, but being one of the rap game's most animated rising stars, Desiigner isn't most people.
In a recent interview with the folks at TMZ, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper told a reporter about the first words he would teach his children. His answer wasn't too shocking. "Daddy, Daddy, Gddddghaaah, you know how we do it, baby," he said, showcasing his signature tongue-rolling onomatopoeia to mimic the sound of a gun going off.
Or course, we're all pretty sure the "Timmy Turner" performer wasn't being completely serious, but it's still fun to think about. After all, his vocally manufactured sound effects helped power his song "Panda" become one of 2016's biggest rap hits. A few weeks ago, the song was certified four times platinum.
At the XXL Freshman cover shoot last summer, Desiigner described how he felt about the song's success after it first topped the Billboard Hot 100 in April.
“‘Panda’ going No. 1 is a blessing,” he said. “I knew it was going to get there, now it’s time to put down more music and deliver for the fans, just give them more. I don’t make music for the time. I make music for the century so I knew it [“Panda”] was going to go. Kanye West and Pusha T, they go crazy all the time. They tell me, ‘Keep doing your thing. You know G.O.O.D. Music got this. You got a number No. 1.’ There’s just good vibes with them all the time when I talk to them about working and my career.”
Desiigner will look to continue his success in 2017, and he was recently named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list.
