Desiigner’s long-awaited debut album Life Of Desiigner may be very close, according to a new update from Mike Dean. The GOOD Music producer and engineer who’s been working closely with Desiigner since his signing confirmed to fans Saturday that the rapper’s upcoming project has been fully mastered, or as he put it, “Finished.”
Dean confirmed that he had completed mastering the album after Desiigner wrote, “iiM WAiTING MiiKE DEAN @therealmikedean To Master LOD He Was Very Siick.” Desiigner also tweeted that LOD will arrive “real soon,” and hinted that the album would show an evolution from his previous work. “New English iiS The Old Me Y’all Really Gonna Hear The Change,” he said.
Last we heard, Desiigner was working on not one, but two projects, with New English 2 to follow Life Of Desiigner. Unfortunately, Dean has not shared any further details on the rapper’s upcoming output, but if his next project is truly through the mastering stage, it seems it’s only a matter of time before it sees release.
In December, Dean gave fans a look at the many projects he was working on, which included music with Kanye West, Travis Scott, and Huncho Jack, Travis and Quavo’s joint album released at the end of 2017. The producer is likely working on Travis’ next solo project Astroworld, which is expected to be released sometime this year. He recently mastered the new Migos album CULTURE II, as well as supplying keys to “Culture National Anthem.”
Desiigner released his debut mixtape New English in June 2016. The project was executive-produced by Dean. He has released a number of singles since, including “Outlet” and “Up.” His breakthrough hit, “Panda,” reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 in 2016.
