After a booming release of his multi-platinum single, “Panda,” Desiigner has diligently been working to match his debut banger. His second single, “Timmy Turner” hasn’t gleamed like his initial single, but we’re sure that Kanye’s Midas touch will elevate the record a couple of notches.
Last month, the record surfaced during Travis Scott’s .Wav party, when someone opted to play a snippet of the song from their phone. Even though Desiigner wasn’t in attendance, Travis did FaceTime his G.O.O.D. Music brethren and allowed him to croon the hook to the remixed record. Even though the footage was only 80 seconds, it was enough to get everyone going crazy over the new record.
“I’m the new Steve, mixed with Ali / ‘Bout to get freed, I’m the new Walt / Man, fuck what you thought / Man, fuck all of y’all,” raps Kanye. Consider this to be another blistering feature by Kanye, especially after he demolished his verse on SchoolBoy Q’s “That Part.”
As for Desiigner, “Timmy Turner” originally gained traction when he freestyled the hook during his XXL Freshman Cipher. A bevy of fans gushed at his unorthodox delivery and clamored for an extended version. Desiigner obliged and delivered the full version of the track. Initially, he received lukewarm reviews. Let’s see if Kanye can help his artist gain even more momentum this time around.
