Desiigner Throws Up Onstage While Performing “Panda”
Brooklyn MC Desiigner was performing his hit song "Panda" recently when he looked like he was feeling kind of sick. In the middle of his performance, he seemed to throw up right onstage, and then just kept performing like everything was cool. You can see the footage above.
Desiigner's been known to have an arsenal of antics onstage, including bringing out guys with panda costumes, dancing to the point of looking like he's having a seizure, and debuting new songs like "Pluto." He recently announced a new mixtape was coming soon using a meme eerily similar to one the Future Hive employs, so lately it feels like he's trying to purposefully draw the ire of the Atlanta superstar.
Right after Desiigner signed with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music and before "Panda" really took off via "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2," XXL asked Desiigner about the comparisons to Future. His answer was coy, to say the least.
"I smile at that, I blush at that, but I have no hard feelings for the dude Future. He does his thing. Actually, I like some of his songs. I think he’s a great artist and I ain’t going to ever turn him down. Just know I have plenty of more music. That’s all I got to say for the people who say I sound like him. Keep tuning in."
Whether being sly will get him put on that Summer Jam screen isn't clear yet, as Future has steered away from even acknowledging dude. But the bigger "Panda" gets - it was No. 5 last week, trumping any solo song Future's ever released - the harder it'll be to ignore Desiigner.
