Desiigner's 'Panda' Video Is Here—And It Features Kanye West as a Stunt Driver

Desiigner's new video for "Panda" is a chaotic whirlwind crammed with battering rams, busted eye-lids and plenty of reckless driving. Oh yeah, and Kanye West gets in on some of the mess fun too, appearing in a pretty stealthy cameo as the rapper's partner in tomfoolery. The "Panda" video became available on Tuesday evening (May 10) as a Tidal exclusive, so watch it above, but be warned: you will not see any cute and cuddly creatures.

In April, the New York City rapper usurped Rihanna's "Work" when "Panda" appeared on Billboard's Hot 100 at the No. 1 spot. We noted at that time that Desiigner is the first rapper to top the charts with a debut single since Iggy Azalea accomplished the feat for "Fancy" in June 2014. If the video is any indication, the MC seems to relish the newfound notoriety.

Listen to Fuse's Back of the Class podcast talk about Desiigner, and whether he's coming for Future's lunch or not, at the 10:30 mark in the episode below:
