This year’s XXL Freshman class cyphers featured “Panda” artist Desiigner who surprisingly presented an acapella over some simple finger snaps that set the internet on fire with both good and negative feedback. One thing was for sure, the lyrics and delivery were catchy as can be. He would later team up with G.O.O.D. Music’s Mike Dean and use his freestyle to create the follow up single, “Timmy Turner”.
That brings us to today’s video featuring Houston’s Lyric Michelle. Finding inspiration behind the lyrics of “Timmy Turner”, Michelle uses her surreal storytelling skills to build upon the Desiigner song and presents the dark sounds of “TIMOTHY”. The song finds the character of Timmy as a grown up, hellbent on violence and destruction. Lyric also flexes her vocal abilities over the chorus. The salt and pepper visual is one to see, check it out below.
