Desiigner – Tiimmy Turner (DJ Premier Remix) [New Song]
DJ Premier puts a new spin on Desiigner’s hit, complete with South Park samples.
We hear a lot of remixes from rappers these days, but not as many production remixes, at least within hip-hop. DJ Premier has decided to bring back the production rework with a new take on Desiigner’s “Tiimy Turner.” Of course, it contains some scratching, as Primo plays with a sample of South Park character Timmy. He strips down the beat, replacing Mike Dean’s maximal trap record with some more traditional New York sounds. It works surprisingly well.
Premier previously remixed Kanye West’s “I Love Kanye” from The Life Of Pablo.
Tiimmy, Tiimmy, Tiimmy Turner
He been wishin’ for a burner
To kill everybody walkin’
He knows that his soul’s in the furnace
Desiigner doesn’t necessarily consider his music “hip-hop.” In a new clip with TIDAL for its DNA interview series, the “Timmy Turner” artist explains why he doesn’t place a label on the music he makes.
The Brooklyn native states, “None of my dudes I chill with are rappers. I don’t put us as rappers. We’re all artists.
The 2016 XXL Freshman also discusses how he ended up in the music industry. Desiigner says, “I never had a job. I never saw myself working for corporate business. My job was to entertain. I’ve always seen myself in the entertainment realm.”
In other Desiigner-related news, his new track “Timmy Turner” is still popping, and as a result, DJ Premier decided to put his own spin on it. At the start of the track, the legendary producer says, “As a DJ when a song is popping, one thing we do is remix it.”
In case you’re still wondering what Desiigner was talking about on “Timmy Turner,” he recently cleared that up in an interview. “Timmy Turner is me,” Desiigner tells All Def Digital. “I was referring to myself when I was saying I was wishin’ for a burner. And when I said ‘she fuckin’ for BET,’ I was referring to a girl that, you know, would do anything for the fame.”
