Desiigner Hosts Surprise L.O.D Pop-Up w/ G.O.O.D Music In Chicago
It’s been a little over two years since his break-out hit “Panda’ hit airwaves, knocking Rihanna’s “Work” out of its 9-week #1 spot on the Billboard charts. Since then, fans have been patiently awaiting new material and the follow-up to his debut mixtape, New English. After, months of hinting at the possibility of dropping two new albums: Liife of Desiiigner and New English 2, the “Timmy Turner” rapper has finally made his long-awaited return.
Proving that good things come to those who wait, Designer teamed up with his G.O.O.D Music and Def jam labels to host a pop-up listening party in Chicago for his surprise EP, L.O.D. While it’s not quite the album we’d hoped for, the 7-track banger absolutely does not disappoint.
Staying true to his Future-eqsue sound and infectious hooks that’s made him a fan favorite, Desiigner transformed what was only 20 minute long project into hour plus of high octane showmanship, Performing every song on his new EP, including “Priice Tag”, “After Party” , “Pop iiT” and “LA to NY” (he gave out a mini-vacay to one lucky audience member) , the only criticism is that the new material isn’t vastly different, if at all, from his previous work. However, given previous success, we wouldn’t encourage him to stray too far from a formula that works. When all is said and done, we’re just happy af to have him back.
