Kanye West's latest signee to his record label, G.O.O.D. Music, has made waves since the day he was introduced. 19-year old New York act, Desiigner, is just coming off of the instant success of his number one hit "Panda" and is already generating buzz again with the announcement of his debut mixtape, "New English", and his placement on the highly coveted XXL 2016 Freshman Class.
The Freshman class list is a collection of up and coming hip-hop artists that XXL Magazine deems as the most promising. Designer's fellow contemporaries Lil Uzi Vert, Denzel Curry, and Kodak Black were just a few of the others included on the list.
With every list, there is an iconic cover shoot (the main reason the spot is so coveted), a story, and a freestyle video where the artists are given a chance to show their skills as a lyricist.
Surprisingly, Desiigner used his freestyle video to display is pension for vocal melodies, putting forth an interesting combination of both trap cadence and song, that has thrown some rap fans for a loop while inspiring soundcloud producers to make something beautiful out of his unique approach. Check out the video above.
