I don’t mean to come off as a “hater”. I don’t even think the kid is a bad rapper. I just think hip-hop is all about making something from nothing. Would this kid have a record deal and an AT&T commercial if he wasn’t on Run’s House and the nephew of the guy who used to be the boss of the guy that signed him? I think not. I just think it’s going to be tough for him to remain relevant for a long period of time. Will we be talking about Diggy Simmons 10 years from now? I honestly don’t know. Then again the hottest “gangster” rapper used to be a correctional officer so anything is possible.
“I’ve grinded and whatnot, but it’s been a short amount of time.“- Diggy in an interview with MTV.
