Artist Series: Diggy Simmons

Diggy Simmons, the 15 year old son of Joseph Simmons who is better known as Rev. Run from Run-D.M.C. XXL’s 2011 Freshman Class seems to be full of new artists who have some strong artists behind them. I’m on the fence with Diggy. His flow is decent, and all his beats seem to fall under a futuristic, outer space theme, and all of his songs are really catchy. He can definitely reach the people in his demographic and impress them. He’s pretty good for a 15-year old; I just wasn’t really impressed. He’s got a lot of time to improve. He has dropped two mixtapes, “The First Flight” and “Airborne”. His music is already getting a lot of play. I heard his song, “Great Expectations” in a commercial the other day so he is definitely getting noticed. Let’s see what he does. Enjoy.
