Desiigner Taps Genius to Produce the “Tiimmy Turner” Lyric Video

Since debuting the hook of “Tiimmy Turner,” formerly just Timmy Turner, as his XXL Freshman Freestyle, Desiigner and producer Mike Dean have re-formatted the track into a top 40 hit. Repeating the line “Timmy Timmy Timmy Turner, he was wishin’ for a burner,” the “Panda” creator gets lost in his own inflection at times. But, to the rescue comes Genius again who also initially broke down the lyrics to “Panda” with the New York emcee.

With the lyrics crawling across the screen alongside monsters animated by Albert Omoss, Desiigner also explains key context in the track and clears the air about who Timmy Turner really is. Watch above and check out Desiigner’s live performance on Sway in the Morning at SXSW below.
