Desiigner may still be revelling in the success of “Panda” (he had recently been named as one of this year’s XXL Freshman Class), but the rapper is finally ready for the next step.
It’s been revealed that Desiigner has a new mixtape titled New English coming out soon via Def Jam. No firm release date has been announced yet, but the project should arrive before the release of the 19-year-old’s debut album, keeping fans satiated until then.
Desiigner’s massive success with “Panda” wasn’t unwarranted, especially considering the fact that Kanye West (amongst many others) took notice and sampled it on The Life of Pablo. Since the song’s release, the breakout single has reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, and also received a set of visuals that feature Kanye.
More recently, rumors about an upcoming Desiigner and Eminem collaboration surfaced when an IT consultant who has assisted with projects surrounding G.O.O.D. Music tweeted about what he referred to as Desiigner’s next “hit.” Desiigner also may have previewed a new song via his Instagram, though he hasn’t confirmed whether or not what’s heard in the post is an official song.
Stay tuned for more info about New English.
