Watch: The Life and Times of Desiigner

You could be forgiven for being sick of Desiigner‘s smash hit single Panda at this point, considering that it has been absolutely everywhere for months now — including, very notably, sitting at number one atop the US Billboard Hot 100, making Desiigner the second youngest artist to have ever achieved the feat at 18 years, 11 months old.

The hit single even made an entertaining appearance as the intro music for NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal at the WWE’s Wrestlemania 32, further affirming the infectiousness and popularity of the G.O.O.D. Music signed, Brooklyn born rookie’s hit track.

Hoping to explore the background of one of the year’s hottest new artists, and uncover the origins of G.O.O.D. Music’s enigmatic latest signee, Genius have unleashed an 18—minute ‘getting to know you’ documentary touching on Desiigner’s humble beginnings and where the artist’s hit song originally began. Hint: It may, or may not, have had something to do with a certain little—known video game series.

Watch Genius’ Desiigner video below, and be sure to keep an eye out for future Desiigner releases to come in 2016.
