Desiigner has been heating up the streets with his song "Panda" and his appearances on Kanye West's The Life of Pablo, but he's also courted some controversy. Most notably, his Atlanta-style sound has drawn many comparisons to Future. "Panda's" opening line "I got broads in Atlanta" certainly didn't help in that department. Nonetheless, Desiigner has mostly soldiered on and brushed off the Future comparisons, telling Complex last month, "God gave him a blessing, but he gave me a blessing too. I ain't gonna doubt the man's music. He make beautiful music too. Music is made every day. Big ups to him, big ups to Future."

That's what makes his latest track so interesting. During his FADER FORT performance at SXSW today, Desiigner debuted a new song titled "Pluto." The chorus of the song goes "Pluto pluto pluto pluto pluto/Go to Mars on 'em." The choice to title the song "Pluto" is both hilarious and controversial in light of the longstanding Future comparisons, as Future's debut album is also famously titled Pluto. Is Desiigner attempting to troll us all? Is his relationship with Future going to turn out similarly to Young Thug's famous infatuation/imitation of Lil Wayne? Or did he really just forget that the artist he's most frequently compared to has an album with the same name as his latest song?

The answer remains to be seen, but you can check out a clip of G.O.O.D. Music's newest signee performing the song below and judge for yourself.
