Below, you can watch a video of Brooklyn rapper Desiigner on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 show. Specifically, you can watch Brooklyn rapper Desiigner freestlying a capella for two full minutes. What you will notice is that Desiigner has a lot of energy. 

But how much energy does Desiigner have? I've broken the video down and judged his energy levels on a scale ranging from 1-100 with the numbers 1-75 remaining entirely unused because that's how much energy Desiigner has when he's just sitting in a chair. Let's take a look.

0:11

This is Funkmaster Flex. This is his radio show. He has invited Desiigner onto his radio show for an interview. His energy levels aren't important here, but his expression is. He has just heard Desiigner make a noise. Brrrrrrap. That was the noise. The noise left him as a growl leaves a car. It was involuntary. It was loud. It was monumental. It was definitely energetic. That's why Funkkmaster Flex looks like that.

Desiigner's energy level: 81/100.

0:23

Funkmaster Flex: "You gonna do a capella?"

Desiigner: "YEAH, YOU DIG, YOU KNOW I GOTTA DO A CAPELLA BABY."

Desiigner is anticipating the coming freestyle. He is enthused. He is increasingly energetic.

Desiigner's energy level: 83/100

A natural lull here, as Desiigner's freestyle commences. Like Evil Knievel descending a large ramp on a motorbike, gravity has taken over. Energy will soon be required, but, for now, he waits.

Desiigner's energy level: 76/100

The ramp has reached its nadir and now Desiigner must rev up again. Here, the muscles in his face have contorted to reflect this effort. He must find speed and rhythm. He must find energy.

Desiigner's energy level: 82/100

Desiigner has lost his breath. He risks losing it all.

Desiigner's energy level: 76/100

I never watched Dragonball Z, but this reminds of of the Dragonball Z commercials that I've seen on TV. Desiigner is now backed by another power, one outside of himself, not of himself. He is in tune with the elements and the universe. His energy is now the energy of a thousand trees. He is a force. Funkmaster Flex, knowing this, stares on in amazement.

Desiigner's energy level: A thousand trees.

1:13

Fuck the trees, Desiigner has taken a pause and returned with the energy of a million suns. This gives him inconceivable amounts of energy, while also allowing him to retain his pose and composure and also, probably, to photosynthesize.

Desiigner's energy level: A million burning stars.

1:29

AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRHHHHHHHH

Desiigner's energy level: 97/100

2:06

Desiigner is now shouting "Don't touch, that's my shit." He means it.

Desiigner's energy level: 98/100

2:17

He's still saying it, but now he seems to be gaining energy from the repetition.

Desiigner's energy level: 99/100

2:22

Desiigner is exhausted. The freestyle is over. He regains consciousness and realizes what he has wrought. He is drained. He finds himself in a room; there are microphones.

Desiigner's energy level: 75, tops.

2:23

Desiigner, energetically: SKKKKKKKKKRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAA

Desiigner's energy level: 100/100
