Mike Dean Says Desiigner Is More Than A Future Knock-Off

G.O.O.D. Music is going all out to add credibility to Desiigner name after the repeated criticism that he's simply a clone of Future. 'Panda' is successful, but will Desiigner be able to showcase a less derivative sound? Mike Dean, who's executive producing Desiigners debut album, thinks so.

"He’s a lot more of an artist than you think he is. He’s not just some Future knockoff,” Mike Dean tells Billboard. “He talks like that — he sounds like he’s got Auto-Tune on his voice in real life. He talks like Future raps, which is weird." “I don’t know where he got his music influence,” he continues. “Just like that old shit that I had, the shit with A$AP Rocky and Yams and all that shit. Like Yams said they grew up on that music on the Internet. Me and Plain Pat were talking about Desiigner. To older people, listening to music is like soul music or old rock music. To Desiigner though [what’s out now] is all the music he knows.”
Mike Dean clearly hears something that we don't hear at this point. He did post a snippet of Desiigner's new stuff and it sounds pretty good. We just have to wait and see if Desiigner proves everyone wrong.
