Diggy Simmons

Like most urban minded men nearing 30 my intro to Hip Hop walked this way in Shell Toes. Run DMC were the flagship artists who broke into white suburbia; introducing Caucasian kids like me to the melodic rhyme-form known as “Rap.” 20+ years later Rev. Run teamed up with Diddy to offer fans an insiders look into his family life. Once again my friends we were blessed to witness rap royalty at its finest. In addition, we were given insight into those regal offspring vying for the crown.

First there were the princesses, Vanessa and Angela, who created Pastry Shoes. Then there was the eldest son, Jojo, who created the rap group Team Blackout. Now there is Diggy, the Airborne adolescent gifted with his father’s devastating mic control.

When we first met Diggy he was the family jester, always providing viewers with a laugh and some dance moves. Then the show faded to black, and Diggy turned the spotlight on his solo career with the release of his mixtape “The First Flight.” As his work slowly took over the world-wide-web Diggy prepped his most recent effort “Airborne.” This feature heavy aerial themed disc showcases his boyish bravado over A-List tracks. With songs produced by the likes of Boi-1da and Kane Beatz doubters may assume Diggy’s heritage provided him with such beats. However, such negativity is quickly swept under metaphorical carpet once Diggy lays down his vocals. This kid is the truth and if you don’t believe me check out his BET cipher!

Though his father’s crown still sits firmly atop his head, it looks as though Diggy is the frontrunner in the race to rock it upon his retirement.
