Desiigner Speaks On His Influences

By HHL Editors

Pusha T played journalist and interviewed his G.O.O.D Music artist Desiigner in the latest issue of Interview magazine.

During their chat, Push asked the 19-year old "Are there any artists, any particular artists that inspire you?"

Here's Desiigner's Future-free answer:

If anything, I would consider my grandfather," Desiigner said of his favorite artists. "He's a blues player. I like the old soul—you know how it is, Pusha, that old soul. My grandfather, he went by the name Sidney 'Guitar Crusher' Selby; he formed that old soul, that old blues, that old rock that I put on my songs. He bluesed it out. And my pops, he was old-school, too; he played that old funk. I fell in love with that old style."
Desiigner incorporated gospel into his second hit, 'Timmy Turner'.

Would like to see what he can do with more rock, soul, blues and funk?
