It’s been a little over the year since Kanye West launched Desiigner into the spotlight by sampling “Panda” on The Life of Pablo. Since then, the Brooklyn rapper known for his eerie similarities to Future has become a well-cemented figure in the hip-hop community on his own merit. And yes, he’s still only 19.
The rapper's mixtape New English reached No. 8 on the U.S. rap charts, and he cleaned up at award shows in 2016, even winning a Grammy. Desiigner has a tour launching next weekend, too: the Outlet Tour, which begins April 2 in Seattle. Big things.
Ahead of his tour, Desiigner has released a new track, “Holy Ghost.” You can stream it below.
It’s a catchy song with a smooth-flowing chorus that bears the exact Desiigner-version-of-trap sound that fans have come to know and love.
In “Holy Ghost,” Desiigner shouts out Drake’s new project More Life, professes his desire for Rihanna, and pays tribute to the late fighter Kimbo Slice.
Desiigner’s debut album, The Life of Desiigner, is coming soon.
