With his mixtape “The First Flight” and countless other singles/remixes (Star Is Born, Point to Prove, Set Me Free) being recognized by fans, yet overlooked by major media outlets, it took the release of his remix to Drake’s, “Over” (Just The Beginning), that eventually got Daniel “Diggy” Simmons love shown by said outlets for being “the first” to drop something over the newly then released track. Although people were receptive of his remake of the new single, Diggy still had more hearts and ears to capture and win over, with the goal of letting everyone know that him creating music was not a hobby but a passion and it was something he is great at.
Destined to be a star, Diggy Simmons, releases “Star Is Born” Freestyle. Talk about FIRE; NO, Really, This sh*t is HOT! Upon dropping his first mix-tape in December with the lead single, “Point to Prove,” followed by another single, “Set Me Free,” Diggy Simmons is holding his own. Getting coverage throughout the internet, the demand to speak to the 14 year old Simmons, is insane. Humble and appreciative for all of the love and devotion his fans have graced him with, yet still feeling he is not taken serious by a few other, he decided to release, “Star is Born.”
The single “Set Me Free” produced by Snake Eyes has Diggy rhyming over an old school RnB track (I tried to research if it was sampled and by what artist. Let me know if you know) bringing a fresh blend of old meet news. I have to remind myself that Diggy is only 14 years old. As with some of his singles on “The First Flight” mixtape, “Set Me Free” Diggy is letting us know that he’s making his own way in the world despite being born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
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.”
