5 Turnt Desiigner Songs That Aren't 'Panda' or 'Tiimmy Turner'

#1"Caliber"

For Fuse's 2016 Breakout Week, we're spending each day commemorating one undeniable act that shook up things in the mainstream this year. Today we're honoring Desiigner, the 19-year-old signee to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music, a native of Jay Z and Biggie Smalls' stomping ground of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. 

Desiigner's debut mixtape, June's New English, starts with a short, pretty orchestral intro—then throws this one in our faces. From what we know of Desiigner so far, this is textbook: hammering production, simple A.F. chorus, enthralling performance. And it ends mid-note, segueing into the rest of the album like the impatient turn of a radio dial.
