Although groovy and smooth in hip hop beats, this song does support a fairly valid meaning behind it’s lyrics.

This what they all been waiting for
I guess so
They been waiting for this shit for a long time didn’t they
I’ma give it everything I got
Ayo Dougie park that X6 around the corner
Aye I’m just feeling my vibe right now
I’m feeling myself

The first verse is dedicated to Desiigner’s breakthrough to the hip hop industry. Kanye West first spotted this talent and signed him in. Lucky for both of them, the first single “Panda” is just about to become a stellar hit.

Panda, Panda
Panda, Panda, Panda, Panda, Panda

Wherever it says Panda, you should only imagine a BMW X6 with tinted windows.

BMW X6 looks pretty identical to a Panda

I got broads in Atlanta
Twisting dope, lean, and the Fanta

It is not necessary to get into the drug recipes in our review of the song, but Desiigner is elaborating on the life unfolding before him.

Credit cards and the scammers
Hitting off licks in the bando

Again, not the best of lines I want to be explaining, but this could be referring to the neighborhood he grew up in Brooklyn.

Black X6, Phantom
White X6 looks like a panda

And there’s the linen. He himself explains the title of the song.

Man I’m the macho like Randy
The choppa go Oscar for Grammy
Bitch nigga pull up ya panty
Hope you killas understand me

He gots swag like Randy ‘Macho Man’ one of the better wrestlers of WWE.

“The Oscars” are the informal name for the Academy Awards, rewarding excellence in all realms of cinematic dramatic expression. A Grammy is the musical award equivalent. – Genius.com

The choppa (automatic weapon) has a “clapping” sound when fired. Award shows typically involve lots of clapping, as does dealing drugs (grams). – Genius.com

He says men are acting like women now (“wearing panties”), and he asks them to man up.

Watch Desiigner Perform the song live at Fort Fader

Wake up Versace shit, life Desiigner
Whole bunch of lavish shit
They be asking round town who be clappin shit
I be pullin up stuff in the Phantom ship
I got plenty of stuff of Bugatti whip look how I drive this shit

The new found popularity could make Desiigner wake up one day to all the luxuries that await artists with a Billboard hit. Clothing from Versace and nice cars.

Big Rollie, it dancing bigger than a Pandie

Rollie refers to the Rolex brand. The diamond studded luxury watches shine a bigger light than a Panda.

Know some killers pull off and they in the Wraith

Desiigner brings in Rolce Royce Wraith into the song too.

Zana Ray fucking up shit and she doin’ her bidnezz

Zana Ray is Desiigner’s manager and the singer gives a nice shoutout to her in “Panda” lyrics. She may F-up stuff, but she does the job of managing his business well.

I be getting to the chicken
Counting to the chicken
And all of my niggas gone split it

‘Chicken’ is slang for a kilogram of cocaine. The rest of the lines are self-explanatory.
