Desiigner has returned from his short-lived retirement to drop a new video for his song “Bigger And Bigger.”
The former G.O.O.D. Music signee had previously announced his retirement from rap in the wake of TakeOff’s death last November but changed his mind a few days later, proclaiming he’s gotta keep going because music is his therapy.
“I’m not gonna stop. Music is my therapy,” Desiigner said on his IG Stories. “Lost a lot of bros this year. We all say things out of emotions but the truth is in me being able to let out a good cry [helped] me see things more clearer now. I’m excited to keep sharing the gift of music that God gave me to y’all.”
Desiigner has now returned with his first new track since that announcement called “Bigger And Bigger,” which follows the Brooklyn rapper as he walks around his city as a Kong-like larger-than-life figure.
The last full-length fans got from Desiigner was his 2018 tape L.O.D., which served as his final release on G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam. In an interview with VladTV last September, Desiigner said he left Kanye West’s label because of a lack of mentorship from Ye.
“The reason why I left Ye is ’cause I was going through a little mental thing,” Desiigner told Vlad. “I was just coming up out of high school, my pops just went into a coma. While I was on tour, I was having a great time but I just knew something at home was happening with my mom and my pops health and shit. So it was just like, I wanted Ye to talk to and it was hard to speak on it. So I wound up just like, I don’t know man, I was just going through it. I had like a young emotional stage at that time, but I was having so much fun, bro.”
He continued, “I couldn’t express myself, what was going on at the crib to my label mates. So maybe I shouldn’t have brung my emotion into the game. But it was just something like, I was young, I never was taught not to keep your emotions out the game. Because I was coming from a place where not too many people made it bro. All we got is emotion in the hood. Like, we driving off emotion, like, situations occur ’cause just emotions out there.
So I am just so used to that, and I just wanted somebody, like that big brother stuff at the same time as being in the label. Not just like, ‘Hey yo, Desiigner, he’s making us these millions,’ but like, ‘Bro really peep his background,’ you know you gotta zuvie him up real quick. Let him know what he could say on the interviews, certain shit, because I was getting nervous, I can’t lie. First coming up, I was getting nervous.”
