Desiigner’s XXL Freshman freestyle that evolved into the famous “Timmy Turner” viral freestyle is now a song.
In June, when XXL gave the young Brooklyn MC the floor to do a freestyle, the kid snapped his fingers, created his own melody and came up with “Timmy Turner.” The rest was history. That freestyle became a internet sensation. After many random people remixing his track and adding production, the-19-year-old sat down with the genius Mike Dean to come up with something.
Earlier this month, Desiigner and Dean gave the world a “Timmy Turner” teaser via Instgram, but now the G.O.O.D Music artist officially made it into a song.
He opens the song with the finger snapping freestyle, sort of as an interlude before the beat drops and he goes wild on the verse. The freestyle without the snaps is the hook. He adds another verse of his unorthodox ad-libs we all grew to love, which are heard throughout the track. Dean did an excellent job of giving life to a once acapella freestyle. When the song begins, it seems as you are in a dark place then at the end, he brings you back to the light.
