Diggy Simmons Kills The Stage In New York City


Mikey Fresh / August 17, 2010

Not many rappers can truly say they have rap royalty pumping through their blood. However, young Diggy Simmons knows he’s the next heir to the Simmons throne. The 15-year-old spitter dropped his debut mixtape, First Flight, late last year and caught the attention of Atlantic Records, who signed him to his first major recording contract in March. Looking to finally gradute from flight school, Diggy opened up a sold out Highline Ballroom for Wale last night in New York City. Taking the stage to his Internet buzz cut “Made You Look (Freestyle),” the teenage lyricist put it on auto-pilot and let his rhymes take ‘em home. —Mikey Fresh
