Save the date. Desiigner is performing at Arkham on December 17.
Desiigner is the rap world’s newest star. Hailing from Brooklyn New York, the 20 year old musician rose to prominence after the 2015 release of his debut song “Panda,” which hit number one on the Billboard Top 100 in the US. His star got a further boost the following year when Kanye West sampled the song on his album, The Life of Pablo. Later that year he was also signed to the producer’s GOOD Music imprint, under Def Jam Recordings. The song proved to be a big deal in the artists career, earning him countless award show nominations including a nod for Best Rap Performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
Despite being from the northern part of the US, his rap is heavily influenced by southern hip-hop, while his fast and upbeat rhyming style has been coined “mumble rap.” Branching out to other styles, most recently collaboration with Korean boy band BTS was announced. The K-poppers will be releasing a remix of their song “Mic Drop” featuring the rapper and produced by electronic DJ Steve Aoki. With his debut album The Life of Desiigner forthcoming, the future is looking mighty bright. Catch him performing hits from his mixtape New English at Arkham this December.
