Diggy Simmons releases single “Copy, Paste,” lands first BET Awards nomination

To be a true fan, I think you need to be able to be a critic, too.  My opening statement will come into play a little further in this post.  I am glad to see Diggy Simmons is still churning out tunes, working on a new album, and fine tuning his enterprise.  He now has a website DiggyWorld.com and just released his latest track “Copy, Paste” that you can preview on the site or on his YouTube channel, but I’m posting for you below.  Diggy’s heading in the right direction with his music style, with a little auto-tune action in this song, but I have to say lyrics like “and they be trying to copy and paste me” as a hook just doesn’t work for me.  I know there are a lot of songs out there with really simple lyrics that turn into catchy hooks, but this comes off amateur.  C’mon Diggy!  I know you can do better.
