Desiigner attends the Pharrell Williams And G-Star RAW Present The New G-Star Elwood X25 Prints - New York Fashion Week - Spring/Summer 2018 on Sept. 13, 2017 in New York City.

Desiigner -- born Sidney Royel Selby III -- turned the big 21 on Thursday (May 3), and he’s capping that off with the release of his debut studio release L.O.D.

The "Panda" rapper took to Instagram to share the album’s artwork, which features a collage of family photos and a pic of a young Desiigner showing off his signature smile front and center. He captioned the photo by announcing that the project would drop at midnight on Friday (May 4), accompanied by fire and goat emojis. 

Back in November, the G.O.O.D Music signee tweeted that he had two albums in the works -- and it looks like first one is almost here. L.O.D follows the release of Desiigner's 2016 mixtape New English, as well as his recent collaboration with Diplo on the confessional track "Suicidal."
