This is what we like to call “expert level” trolling. According to a rep at Def Jam Records, Desiigner’s “Moon People” is a fake. A tricky troll took Desiigner’s vocals from his Tim Westwood appearance and created an entire new song and uploaded it to a mock Soundcloud account.
Despite the fraudulent status of “Moon People,” we still think Desiigner sounds exactly like Future. Some things will never change.
Enlisting the talents of fellow newcomer Boyd, Desiigner puts his best Future voice forward. The song features lyrics Desiigner spit during his freestyle on Tim Westwood TV.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do today, cock back then I shoot the K,” raps Desiigner.
Despite sounding like Future’s bastard child, Desiigner is still riding high from the success of his breakout single “Panda.” The viral hit, which was also featured on Kanye’s The Life Of Pablo LP, scored the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for two consecutive weeks.
Take a listen to “Moon People” below.
