Kanye West continues to show support for his G.O.O.D. Music signee Desiigner by lending some bars to a remix of "Tiimmy Turner," which premiered Tuesday night on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 radio show.

Listen to a recording of the premiere here:

The song is the Brooklyn MC's follow-up single to his breakthrough hit, "Panda," which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring.

In the remix, just over two minutes long, West questions: "Born in the nation that breeded us/ Why they don't ever show me the love?"

Later in the verse, Yeezy continues his habit of comparing himself to some of the greatest entrepreneurs and athletes to ever live: "I'm the new Steve, mixed with Ali/ 'Bout to get freed/ I'm the new Walt/ F--- what you thought."

The original version of "Tiimmy Turner," released in July, was one of the most-talked-about singles of the summer. Originally attracting lots of hype as Desiigner's 30-second XXL Freshman Freestyle, the full version of the track hasn't been showered with the same acclaim.  

It is the rapper's first single since the release of his debut mixtape, New English, in June. 

West, who makes a cameo in the "Panda" video, initially introduced Desiigner to the world by prominently sampling the song on his Life of Pablo track "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 2."
