I’ve had the pleasure of watch Diggy Simmons’ rap career take off virtually from the start. Yet, Diggy continues to remain versatile like the rest of the family. He’s launched an athletic men’s shoe line Chivalrous Culture and starring in one of AT&T’s latest commercials.
At 15 years young Diggy Simmons is already carrying on the family legacy and talent when it comes to hip hop and fashion. On December 2, 2009, Diggy released his mixtape “The First Flight.” While this is a debut album, as I listen to it (listening now for the first time), Diggy sounds like no newcomer to the game. It’s well produced and Diggy has a well honed rap flow. His rhymes are over tracks infused with taste of jazz and RnB. I’m glad Diggy didn’t try to thug it out because that would not been believable for a kid born with a silver spoon in his mouth…or as his debut single says a “Point to Prove.”
Diggy Simmons: Diggy feels people always think he has it easy so a rap career should be a piece of cake, but he’s attempting to show his own color. Aside from the much talked about clothing line, Space Cadet, Diggy is dropping his first mix-tape, “The First Flight.”
