The media has enjoyed pitting Desiigner against Future, though it's obvious the former is greatly influenced by the latter. Desiigner has responded to all those who consider him a Future knock-off with a troll-ish strategy that seems to only incite his detractors and make the FutureHive more angry. He performed a new song called "Pluto," also the name of Future's debut album, at SXSW, and a couple of weeks ago, he announced a new mixtape, and for the initial artwork, he used the same image from cover of Prince's Purple Rain but with his own head photoshopped onto that of Prince (R.I.P.). The move suggests that he wanted to draw a likeness between his upcoming project and Future's January mixtape, titled Purple Reign

Future had stayed quiet about his Brooklyn clone, until last night, when he was in Upstate New York for a concert in Syracuse. According to Complex, at one point in the show Future decided to test out the energy levels coming from different sections of the venue. Apparently one part of the crowd was particularly quiet, prompting Future to tell them, "Y'all must be Ciara or Desiigner fans or something." 

Of course, Future's beef with his baby mama has gotten much nastier than any bad blood he might have with Desiigner. Earlier this month, Ciarawouldn't mention her ex's name when announcing the nominees for the upcoming Billboard Music Awards. Luckily, her co-host Ludacris stepped in before things got too painful. A couple of days later, it was reported that Future had filed a countersuit against Ciara after she had hit him with charges of slander and libel in February. 

An expert troll recently concocted an image of the cover art to a fake "Panda" remix, and it shows Desiigner and Ciara standing face-to-face. Perhaps it's time for them to team up now that Future namedropped his two rivals in the same sentence.
