With hardly anything else to his name, the rapper has spent half of 2016 riding high off the success of his very first single, which has since gone platinum-plus. And although he would release his debut mixtape, New English, critics both online and off were quick to write him off as a one-hit wonder.
That is, until he delivered his XXL Freshman freestyle. Resembling a hook to a song more than an actual rap those 30 seconds — which was dubbed by the Internet as “Timmy Turner” — arguably became more popular than New English itself.
Now Desiigner has turned the (once again, it’s only a) 30-second clip into a full-fledged song, which will be produced int part by longtime G.O.O.D. Music affiliate and legendary producer Mike Dean. The two have been previewing it via Instagram…
… and now the song has an official cover art (which Marvel Comics, unfortunately, did not do).
I will say that the cover art is rather dope, however. But all of this has come to fruition because of the Internet.
