Desiigner had the internet in shambles when he dropped his XXL freestyle “Timmy Turner.” Before the lyrics were finally deciphered many questioned what the rapper was saying, which is proving to be nothing new. But perhaps most importantly, many questioned if he was saying anything meaningful. As it turns out, he was. During an interview the “Panda” rapper broke down the meaning of his lyrics and admitted ‘Timmy Turner’ is actually him.
“Timmy Turner is me,” he began. “I was referring to myself when I was saying I ‘was wishing for a burner.’ And when I said ‘she f—in’ for BET,’ I was referring to a girl that, you know, would do anything for the fame.”
He went on to say that, “Then I would say in the song that I know that my soul’s in the furnace; because if I know that I wish for the burner, and she knows that she would do anything for the fame, you know you go to hell.” Overall, Desiigner revealed that the storyline revolves around the “struggle and pain” he was feeling at the time.
While a catchy track isn’t anything new to Desiigner fans, the honesty of “Timmy Turner” is one that fans are sure to appreciate.
