Desiigner released a new song titled “BAKIN” this past weekend, which has an interesting origin. Slushii, an electronic/pop DJ and producer, collaborated on the single with DJ Whoo Kid, who is most known for his early 2000s work with 50 Cent.
To promote the song, DJ Whoo Kid recently appeared on the Wendy Williams Show, which is presently hosted by Jay Pharoah and Michael Rapaport. Whoo Kid claimed that he bonded with Desiigner since he had heard the rapper slept with his former girlfriend while discussing how the song came together.
While figuring this out, he was also listening to tracks supplied to him by Slushii, and ultimately everything came together.
A producer named Slushii, who was introduced to me by Steve Aoki, a very popular DJ who I’m assuming all of White America knows, sent me some beats. I heard two of them, and at the same time my cousin called me and he was like, ‘Yo, I think that rapper Desiigner slept with your girl.’ So I was like, ‘What?.’ So at the same time I heard the beats, I was calling Desiigner to curse him out.
While this may appear to be an odd approach to make amends, the song did generate some interesting headlines. DJ Whoo Kid went on to explain that following their squabble about who slept with whom, they eventually agreed to collaborate on a song.
I called Desiigner, I’m cursing him out, there’s so many people out here, why sleep with my ex-girl? So I’m yelling at him, and he’s yelling back. All of a sudden, I’m like, ‘Yo, why don’t we just stop arguing, and I’ma send you this beat. You rap on this beat, and if you kill it, then I don’t mind you sleeping with my ex-girl, you can have her.’
Along with this weird story of DJ Whoo Kid’s ex, the music video for “BAKIN” features some of late renowned actor Bob Saget’s final on-screen appearances, as he prepares in the kitchen with Desiigner. Check out DJ Whoo Kid’s conversation about Desiigner and “BAKIN” below.
