If you've spent any time on the corners of the rap internet over the last month, you'll have seen wall-to-wall coverage of the evolution of Desiigner's "Timmy Turner." The rap newcomer — and front runner for Song of the Summer — debuted the the Fairly OddParents–inspired track (he's 19, guys) as a finger-snapping a cappella ballad during his XXL Freshman freestyle. From that moment on, no other rap song has been more feverishly hyped up. After several ominous teases, the full version has arrived in all its fairly odd glory. What was once a haunting lullaby is now a Gothic rap opera Frakensteined by Kanye West fave Mike Dean. Come for Desiigner's mumbleraps, stay for the soothing melody now regrettably hidden beneath a cacophony of overproduction.
