Desiigner is in a mental health facility after exposing and playing with himself on an airplane last month, but he has some music he wants to share with his fans. In an Instagram post shared on his 26th birthday, he gave fans an update on his mental health while revealing that his new music will come out on Friday, May 5.

“I turned 26 today and i want to thank ya’ll for holding me down,” Desiigner wrote Wednesday. “I admitted myself into a facility last week to focus on my mental health. But before that i had planned to release TIIMMY TURNER 2 this week as a surprise to my fans. I recorded this joint a while ago and it reflects on where i’ve been mentally over the past year.”

The rapper went on to apologize, noting, “I can’t promote it the way i like to cause i’m off the grid, but i just want to give you some new music while i take time away to become a better me.”

“I’m going through a tough time right now but i won’t let my struggles define who i am,” he continued. “I will come back stronger and make more music that connects with all of you on a deeper level.”

Desiigner released “Tiimmy Turner” in 2016.
