Desiigner has gotten endless comparisons to Future ever since his song "Panda" was remixed on Kanye West's The Life of Pablo album and then hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year. But another GOAT musician Desiigner needs to be compared to is Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger. Have you seen videos of the New York rapper performing? Move over, Adam Levine — Desiigner's the one who really moves like Jagger (and also like Redd Foxx when he's on his way to see Elizabeth). He may not have the footwork, but the energy and the motions are there. Just for shits and giggles, we grabbed GIFs of Desiigner and Jagger dancing, compared them, and picked a winner. This thing went down to the wire.


The "Zombie Walk"

The "Kansas City Shuffle"

WINNER: Desiigner. Mick's James Brown impression just doesn't cut it.


The "Shake & Dab"

The "Hips Don't Lie"

WINNER: Mick. Because he's moving like a white Shakira, and it's pretty impressive tbh.


The "Huh, What, Me?"

The "Egyptian"

WINNER: Mick. The Egyptian is a classic go-to move.


The "Toss, Catch & Dab"

The "Flashdance"

WINNER: Mick. Because that outfit is snazzy and Desiigner dabs too damn much. Also, did Jennifer Beals get this move from Mick or was it the other way around?


The "Seizure"

The "Jumpman"

WINNER: Desiigner — because Mick has no hops.


The Very Rare "Puke & Dab"

The "Cokehead Bounce"

Winner: Desiigner. The focus required to vomit mid dab and still go on with the performance is the stuff of legends.

And there you have it folks. Not only has Desiigner one-upped Future by having a No. 1 hit before him, he's also handing the legendary Mick Jagger an L. This is Migos being better than the Beatles all over again.
