Desiigner owes his name to his sister, who used to call him Designer Royal. At the age of 14, he got shot, but survived, and is now the first New York rapper since Jay Z to reach the top of the Hot 100 Billboard. Signed by Kanye, he was recently nominated for a Grammy for his global hit Panda. And Desiigner is showing no signs of slowing. In fact, his journey to conquer the world has only just begun.
