Desiigner takes us back to Brooklyn in new mini-documentary

If there are two things you can count on Desiigner for, it’s energy and smiles. He brings both in a new mini-documentary recorded by Def Jam.

The 19-year-old took us back to his Brooklyn community, and his childhood home, and talks about growing up in the area.

The mini-doc shows the responsibility Desiigner now perceives he has, to go back into his community and show people there’s a route out, while he also talks about getting shot and how music saved his life.

You can see how far the G.O.O.D. Music signee has come from the excitement his family has at seeing him, an opportunity they apparently don’t get very often.

Next up for Desiigner we’ll get to see how he’s gelled with his new label mates on Cruel Winter, the follow-up to Cruel Summers, expected out early in 2017.
