Blazing new artist spotlight: Interview with Diggy

Daniel “Diggy” Simmons is definitely carrying on the Simmons legacy. With a raps that are contagious enough to land over 100,000 downloads of his “The First Flight” mixtape just through from own blog Life of The Jet Setter, a recently announced record deal with Atlantic Records, and a new men’s shoe line called Chivalrous Culture scheduled to debut in August 2010, this 15 year old is a millionaire mogul in the making and possessing the online media savvy to make it happen.

Diggy Simmons drops “The First Flight” mixtape (download link)

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.”

MTV reality show spinoff for the gals from Run’s House- ‘Daddy’s Girls’

To see the trailer for Angela and Vanessa Simmon’s spinoff series “Daddy’s Girls” has me doing cartwheels across the living room…figuratively speaking. One, it’s nice to see one of these mindless fluffy, just for fun shows feature some sisters of color.
