When your dad is one of the founders of hip hop and your uncle owns Def Jam Records, there’s a good chance that you’re going to a) have good musical genes, b) get mad musical hook ups, or c) both. That seems to be the case for Reverend Run’s 15 year old son Daniel ‘Diggy’ Simmons. Diggy released his debut mix tape, The First Flight, last year. But, it was after a viral video of Diggy rapping over Nas’s track Made You Look that the young MC caught the attention of Atlantic Records, who just signed Simmons to release his first album.
Not only is Diggy set to take the rap world by storm, he also wants to look good while doing it. In addition to being a regular on the fashion show circuit, Diggy updates his blog Life of The Jet Setter with what’s fresh in fashion, often taking cues from his idols Kanye West, designer Marc Jacobs and Atlantic Records album mate Lupe Fiasco.
