With a new AP in his sights and a host of other goodies on queue, Desiigner continues his comeback trail. “Shoot” produced by versatile duo Play-N-Skillz passes straight to video, a montage as spare as his use of language. “Shoot” is remarkably similar thematically to “Shooters” from his New English LP, albeit without a barrage of kicks.
Desiigner doesn’t veer far from the style that made him instantly recognizable, more often than not expressing his condensed lyrical style under an oversized umbrella or hook. Once you’ve been stung by his cadence you’ll find yourself nodding off into semi-consciousness, and before long “Shoot” has run its course.
Desiigner’s continued ascent is something most around the culture are quietly rooting for. After the unexpected success of “Panda,” critics and fans were both unsure he would step out the immense shadow of his Kanye co-sign or his congruence with several “mumble” rappers who’d earned their livelihood pushing the style. While his manifesto remains an utmost mystery to most, Desiigner is perhaps farther along than we’d like to believe. Give “Shoot” a well deserved listen.
