Desiigner’s “Timmy Turner” Freestyle is (((EASILY))) “Ballad of Year 2016”

If you haven’t seen the forty-five-second “Timmy Turner” video, you should watch it right now. Desiigner’s freestyle is everything that “Panda” is not: impromptu, eerily subdued, melodically complex, sung gently and in a hushed voice, rather than rapped against a tide of glass-splintering bass. The video’s minimalist setting is a serene contrast to Desiigner’s adrenaline-fuelled TV performances. He performs a cappella, accompanied only by the snapping of his fingers. There’s a hymnal quality to the song, and a melodic sensibility that’s undetectable on “Panda.” Where the mush-mouthed lyrics on “Panda” became along-running Internet joke, the words to “Timmy Turner”—although equally difficult to transcribe—carry a narrative weight. The video arrived like a burst of magic, a rap hit gifted to the world in embryonic state. (Source)

Fine bitch on BET
Hottie wilin’, she fuckin’ on BET, wildin’ for wallet

Kill everybody walkin’
He knows that his soul’s in the furnace
Timmy, Timmy, Timmy Turner
