Rapper Desiigner is engaged to his longtime girlfriend - whom he started dating BEFORE his fame, MTO News has confirmed.

According to folks close to the couple, Desiigner popped the question over Thanksgiving. His girlfriend, music executive Lana Ray immediately said "Yes."

The rapper didn't just wife up any old girl. His new fiancé, Zana Ray, is a college educated executive. She's been managing Desiigner's career ever since he first popped.

Desiigner rose to fame when he released his debut single, “Panda” a few days before Christmas 2015, the song racked up more than 100 million views on YouTube and six weeks later, Desiigner was signed to Kanye West’s GOOD Music record label.

Here are pics of the young couple:


Desiigner's real name is Sidney Royel Selby III the 21 year old rapper was born on May 3, 1997, in Brooklyn, New York. He is of Afro-Barbadian and African American descent, and is the grandson of blues musician Sidney "Guitar Crusher" Selby. He grew up in the Louis Armstrong housing projects in the Bedford–Stuyvesant neighborhood. He began practicing vocals at school choir and church. At the age of 14, after being shot, he embarked on his music career.

After signing a record deal, Desiigner subsequently appeared on two tracks — "Pt. 2" (which features an interpolation of "Panda") and "Freestyle 4" — that was taken from Kanye West's seventh album The Life of Pablo. Desiigner then went on to perform at the 2016's South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival.
