He’s the son of Rev. Run and nephew of Russell Simmons, yet Daniel “Diggy” Simmons needed no family assistance when dropping his first mixtape. He used the internet and his personal blog to his advantage. Now he’s worked his way up the ladder and is positioning himself for great success.
Diggy opened for Mindless Behavior on the Scream Tour: The Next Generation in Milwaukee last night. DJ SpinBlade spun a few tunes before Diggy hit the stage in front of a packed house of screaming fans. This was my first introduction to Diggy and he made a very great first impression. First off all he actually raps and doesn’t rely on lip syncing for his performance. He has a large personality and it shows on stage. Diggy interacted with his ever so excited fans. He even pointed to a female fan in the crowd and she was pulled to the side of the stage where she had her dream come true of meeting him. I was there as she walked back to her friends and say tears of joy on her face.
Now we just need a full length album from him.
