‘Panda’ rapper Desiigner charged with gun, drug possession after road rage incident





Brooklyn rapper, Desiigner could be facing serious jail time after pointing a gun at a fellow motorist near the Lincoln Tunnel, New York City.

Desiigner, whose real name is Sidney Royel Selby, was riding in the back seat of a Cadillac Escalade on Thursday night when he got into an argument with the driver of another vehicle, according to TMZ. Police said, the rapper then flicked a cigarette at the other vehicle and waved a gun at the driver. The victim took down the license plate number of the SUV and called the cops.


The rapper and four friends in the white SUV were stopped by police who found the gun, Oxycontin and other drugs. Desiigner was hit with drug and weapons charges.

Desiigner is known for his single, “Panda,” which rose to No. 1 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in April. In February, he signed with Kanye West’s label Good Music.

    Just look at this one, your career just kicked off, you have buzz, you only have one mixtape out, this is the beginning of the end of a very short career. These black rappers, should ask people like Jay-Z and Dr Dre the secret to longevity, because a lot of these kids don’t have a direction in life and it is sad.

    Bella Naija. Bella. Bella Naija! How many times did I call you? It is 2016. There is no reason for your ‘next page’ button to be redirecting me to the Fifty movie. I have already seen it. I saw it in theatres. I have seen it on Netflix. It is not a new movie.
    These days when your button redirects me to another site I don’t even bother complaining; I just leave the site altogether. Today’s own is much though, because the promotion you appear to be doing is for a movie I HAVE ALREADY SEEN, inugo?

    I don’t know what oxycontin is tho

    Eeeyaaa. His album is superviolent when you think about it, it’s also very funny music in that he’s so young and the sound is so frivolous e.g. what is panda, what is he saying, why so fast and faster lol. And he’s so happy and so smiley and happy,

    I wish he would find Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, or just some sort of life compass so that he can stay out of trouble and make it to age 20 and insha’Allah make it to having grandkids without doing something very bad. Amen.
    Can’t believe I like his stupid song.
