Few rappers can match the success Desiigner has achieved at 19—“Panda” reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, a Grammy nomination, 10 million singles sold—and that’s all before dropping a debut album. He’s also set to embark on his first headlining tour in April, but before that the Brooklyn rapper spent some time with Joe La Puma at Flight Club in Los Angeles for our latest episode of Sneaker Shopping.
Desiigner is a big fan of the Air Jordan 5s, and shares a crazy story from his childhood involving a car and a pair of Air Jordan 18s.
He also talks about receiving fashion guidance from fellow G.O.O.D. Music members Kanye West and Pusha T (“I’m always just listening to the big homies”) and reveals he has something in the works with Adidas. Good company, indeed.
