Desiigner is back. After remaining relatively quiet in 2018, the “Panda” hitmaker returns with his debut EP L.O.D.
Going solo without any features, the 7-track effort showcases Desiigner’s rambunctious and infectious energy. “Killers they all around,” he brags on “Tonka.” “Killers got all the rounds / You can get lost and found / Free all my dogs in pounds.”
Plus, L.O.D. allows the G.O.O.D. Music MC to reintroduce himself to listeners on cuts like “Hood.” “I feel like a pharaoh in my neighborhood,” he raps. “I be packing barrels in my neighborhood / I sing Christmas carols in my neighborhood, Beyoncé!”
Later, he references his “Panda” stardom. “I got up to travel, I am viral / I know the snakes, they rattle / And I don’t like you / I just start to moonwalk, just like I’m Michael / …And I don’t recycle / I am a psycho.”
The Kanye West-led imprint will be busy in the next few months. Yeezy recently announced a new solo album, his Kids See Ghost joint project with Kid Cudi, and new efforts from Teyana Taylor and Pusha T.
