Desiigner has definitely been one one of 2016’s most impressive breakout acts. The 19 year old’s smash hit, “Panda”, has been largely responsible for his rise and at this time his net-worth is estimated to be about $4 million.
So imagine how shocking it is to learn that Desiigner bought the beat for $200.
It was revealed earlier this year that the rapper had bought his beat from an English producer by the name of Menace, for $200 on YouTube. In an Interview,he explained how it all went down:
“My homies and I were in the crib, you know, playing GTA [Grand Theft Auto], when my boys started playing a track on the computer that caught everybody’s ear. I was always the one that cooked up the hooks in the hood, so, my boy asked me if I could cook up some flavor for the beat and I said, ‘You know, give me two days.’ The beat was right there on YouTube–a real Lloyd Banks type beat, and two days later, I gave it to y’all.”source: http://www.mtvbase.com/news/how-desiigner-bought-the-panda-beat-for-200-dollar/hpfwlz
And that is the eloquent tale of how “Panda” was born!
