So, apparently, Desiigners song “Panda” has over taken Rihanna’s “Work” as the #1 song in america. This is just a coincidence cause I’ve been tinkering with a remix idea of this song for a while. Now, half of you will see I remixed this and come at me like “but whyyyyy?!?!?!?”. The other half will be like “Oh cool…”
For the first group of people, lemme explain.
I’m not here to make excuses. Fuck that. I’mma be straight up and say I like “Panda”. I would never remix a song I actively dislike. Not only that but I think Desiigner raps his ass off. Sure, it’s one short verse , sandwiched between two choruses that are about as long as said verse. I hear a lot of people complaining about how he sounds like Future. Well, I’m sure he does. i don’t really check for Future. The stuff i have heard didn’t move me and I can honestly say, at no point, have I heard Future rap like Desiigner does during his one verse in the middle of this song. Keep in mind, I’m not too schooled on Future so it’s possible it exists. I simply haven’t heard it. I see the similarities in aesthetic but that’s about it. But, back to Desiigner…to all you people rolling their eyes at the idea of even listening to this kinda thing, yet you claim to be into some weirdo rap…His verse on this song is some straight out of project blowed abstract rap flow kinda shit. Sure, I can’t make out most of the words and , topically, i doubt it’s anything special but my point is…the dude can flow. At the very least, you gotta give him that. That’s what popped out to me when I finally gave this song a chance. That and the hook is catchy. Sorry…it is. I hate that I have to even write this kinda shit but I feel like I know my readership well enough to know how closed off some of you are from even allowing yourself to like some shit like this.
So, yeah…Here’s my remix. It’s an old beat i was sitting on for a while that never found a home. A little latin flavor…kinda.
