Who knows what the future holds for 19-year-old rapper Desiigner, but if his recent WWD interview is any indication, he seems like someone who won't be resting on his laurels. Even at his young age, he's managed to accomplish more than established acts have.
In person, he isn't at all like the emphatic emcee he portrays on stage; his interview is conducted with a levelheadedness that runs contradictory to his crowd-pleasing persona. His shows are energetic, to say the least, and serve as a place for him to be his most natural self.
"Ever since I was younger I was a performer," Desiigner says. "I was a ladies’ boy in school, so I was singing to girls and singing "Happy Birthday." So when it came down to performing it was just natural. It’s just my rhythm, my vibe, my funk."
Head over to WWD to read the interview in its entirety, then watch him recite the lyrics to his hit song, "Panda," below.
