Desiigner Performs "Panda" Karaoke-Style With Chinese Captions

Could the Brooklyn rapper be on his way to global acclaim?

88 Rising

The momentum surrounding Desiigner's hit single "Panda" isn't slowing down anytime soon. Following the release of its official music video, Desiigner added a unique approach to his visual efforts. In the 88 Rising-made video, Desiigner performs "Panda" karaoke-style with additional elements such as Chinese captions, slang breakdowns (Montana = God of white powder) and crazy good graphics. This new, cheeky video places more of a emphasis on Asian culture than the song itself, possibly as means to enter a new market? Who knows. This music-culture crossover has effectively worked before in reverse with Keith Ape's "It G MA" remix, featuring A$AP Ferg, Father, Dumbfounded and Waka Flocka Flame. Could Desiigner be on his way to international fame?

Only time will tell; until then, check out the karaoke performance below.
