Introducing: Diggy Simmons

Last week was a big one for the son of  Run-DMC co-founder and rapper Joseph Simmons b.k.a Rev-Run.  Diggy turned 15 years old the day before he signed a deal with Atlantic Records.  The viral video above extended the buzz started by Diggy’s “First Flight” mixtape (w/DJ Spinking & illroots.com).  You may have seen the  self proclaimed jet-setter on his family’s series on MTV,Run’s House or even as a featured FreshKid on kanYe’s Blog. The young MC makes the claim to writing all his own rhymes and pursuing music without the help of his parents. Regardless of his connections the kid shows potential and shows respect for a classic over Nas’s “Made You Look”.  He will have very high expectations as he follows his dreams in his father’s legendary footsteps.
