Seventeen-year-old Diggy Simmons has music in his blood. With hip-hop legend Rev Run from Run DMC as a father and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons as an uncle, music is constantly around, but pursuing a music career was a choice for Diggy. “I was never pushed into it,” Diggy said. “But it’s just in my blood. I loved hip hop from a very young age.”
Diggy was gaining fans and making mixtapes early on. One of his mixtapes made it to Atlantic Records in 2009 and the rest was history. The young emcee was signed to Atlantic when he was 14-years old. “It was awesome. I was on my way to getting to that next level. It’s a pretty amazing thing to accomplish by that age,” he said.
From there, Diggy released hit after hit, making his mark in the world of hip-hop. He released his debut album “Unexpected Arrival” in March of this year and has yet to stop his epic rise to the top. Diggy recently kicked off the Scream Tour Next Generation Part 2 in Miami, which features the OMG Girlz, and Jawan Harris.
