    Rapper Desiigner's "Panda" has been devouring the charts in the months since Kanye West debuted The Life of Pablo. West notably sampled his fellow-GOOD Music signee's relentless trap beat on Pablo's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2." Kanye West's use of "Panda" catapulted the 19-year-old rapper into pop ubiquity. Befitting the close ties to the Desiigner's breakout success, Kanye West appears alongside the 19-year-old MC in the song's new music video, which West co-directed with Paul Geusebroek.

    "Panda's" incessant hook is derived from the BMW X6, as the New York City-based rapper explains in a recent interview with Complex: "The panda is the black X6 and the white X6. The black X6 look like a Phantom, the white X6 look like a panda. I'm just putting it in a greater way of how I say and the way I live."

    True to the song's inspiration, the video features the song's namesake vehicle driven by Kanye West with Desiigner riding shotgun. The pair emerge halfway through the high-octane video, celebrating rebellion and satisfying their need for thrills via the tried-and-true donut.

    In the same interview, Desiigner reveals he has a mixtape on the way, although, currently there's no release date or title set for a Desiigner tape. If you're hungry for more Desiigner, you'll be pleased to know he's featured on Jim Jones' "Finesse," along with Rich Homie Quan, and A$AP Ferg, Pitchfork reports.
