Panda superstar and signee to Kanye West’s coveted G.O.O.D Music, Desiigner was in town this week for his debut run of Australian performances. The rapper was in town for FOMO Festival across Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide, as well as a trio of headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
Desiigner enjoyed a huge 2016; not only did Panda continue to dominate the charts, bringing overwhelming commercial success to the young artist, but he released his debut mixtape New English and was featured as an XXL Freshman, among other highlights.
Opening for Desiigner was Elizabeth Cambage, MIMI, and local Melbourne rapper Ivan Ooze, who also enjoyed a massive year, including releasing a spitfire track featuring none other than Ghostface Killah.
We caught Desiigner and co live in Melbourne at the Corner Hotel on Wednesday, January 10 2016.
