Desiigner Teams Up with Genius for ‘Tiimmy Turner’ Lyric Video
Desiigner teamed up Genius to present a new lyric video which dropped yesterday (Aug. 16), for those who needed even further clarification about what the hell he was talking about on the song.
Of course, the rapper previously offered an explanation for the lyrics when the song dropped in an interview with All Def Digital.
“Timmy Turner is me,” he said in the interview. “I was referring to myself when I was saying I ‘was wishing for a burner.’ And when I said ‘she f—in’ for BET,’ I was referring to a girl that, you know, would do anything for the fame.”
He further explained his reference to the woman who wants BET fame.
“Then I would say in the song that I know that my soul’s in the furnace; because if I know that I wish for the burner, and she knows that she would do anything for the fame, you know you go to hell,” he continued. “It’s a storyline about little bit about my struggle and the pain I was feeling at the moment.”
Now the lyric video has dropped, offering even further insight into the song. The track, produced by rap vet Mike Dean, offers written commentary throughout, explaining how it came into existence, throws shouts out to Desiigner for his VMA nominations, and offers info about the origins of "Timmy Turner," who is a character on the funny Nickelodeon cartoon, The Fairly Odd Parents, for anyone who was still wondering. The video also explains the funny spelling of "Tiimmy," saying the rapper changed it to match the crazy spelling of his own name.
There's fire, some creepy claymation-like character crawling around in the forest to cap off the visuals for the song. Check it out above.
