A BIG SIIGNING

Breakout hip-hop artist Desiigner—whose “Panda” (G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam)  is exploding at retail and radio—has inked a worldwide co-pub pact with SONGS Music Publishing following a heated bidding war with multiple majors (co-writer Menace has yet to land with a pubco). Shortly after this pic was snapped, SONGS President Ron Perry asked when he’d get to play with the actual Panda. Seen are (top, l-r) manager Zana Ray, G.O.O.D. Music’s Steven Victor, attorney Bob Celestin and (bottom, l-r) Perry and Desiigner.
