Desiigner's "Panda" is currently the No. 2 song in the country. It's a song that took him a year and a half to make, and one that he's proud of.

Inspired by Desiigner's incredible boot 'n rally (see below), we wanted to round up a list of some particularly shocking moments of on-stage behavior.

Stream Westside Gunn's "FLYGOD" Album Mar 11, 2016 at 03:11pm
Westside Gunn has emerged as one of New York's most promising up-and-coming emcees. His cinematic soundscapes and eye for street-level detail have earned him comparisons to certain Wu-Tang members, but his imagination is all his own. And that's partly because he doesn't hail from one of the five boroughs, but, instead, from Buffalo, which Gunn paints as a fearsome (and freezing) place. Gunn now resides in Atlanta, and living in the industry hub has helped him make astute observations on the state of the rap game.
