There’s no doubt that Kanye West has done wonders for his artist, Desiigner’s career. West’s sample of “Panda” on “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2,” helped to quickly propel the song to Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 around the end of April. The music video for the hit has finally arrived, and it also stars Mr. West.
“Panda” is set in New York’s dark streets. The camera follows Desiigner as he spins and speeds through the city in a daze. Intermittent shots of police raids and street violence work to heighten the intensity of the scene, as the rapper makes away with a stolen car. West appears at the height of the madness, ferrying Desiigner away in a white and black BMW X6; the song’s namesake.
The music video for “Panda” will be available to stream exclusively on Tidal for the next six days. The site requires no subscription to watch it. You can check it out here.
