Desiigner's official "Timmy Turner" track is finally here

  /  07.21.2016

“Timmy Timmy Timmy Turner/ He be wishin’ for a burner/ To kill everybody walkin’/ You know that he’s holdin’ the furnace.”

If that lyric hasn’t been stuck in your head since Desiigner dropped his XXL Freshman freestyle a month ago, it will be now that the official, radio-bound version has dropped. The rapper teased the track three times over the last week, but finally made good on his word today.

And the real “Timmy Turner” is a trip. What was once a bare-bones, acoustic, 45-second snippet has evolved, thanks to production from Mike Dean.

With his rowdy yelps and trademark tongue-roll still in tact, Desiigner delivers downtempo bars over echoed finger snaps, haunting harmonizing, squealing synths and percussive taps. But then, with just one minute left to the track, its gothic beat shifts entirely and, now carried and closed out by an ascending and uplifting chant, timmy timmy timmy turns from ominous to uplifting.
