Are You Prepared For Diggy's "Unexpected Arrival"?



Daniel “Diggy” Simmons, the charming middle son on MTV’s Run’s House, has the hip-hop community on the edge of their seats, calling him the “Next Hottest Thing.” In 2010, Diggy teamed up with video director Phil The God to create a viral video that caught the attention of the entire music world. "Flow Stoopid," a freestyle track over Nas' "Made You Look," received instant co-signs from rap heavy hitters ranging from Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West to Common, Quest Love, and Talib Kweli and quickly became an instant viral sensation. In March 2010, Diggy inked a deal with Atlantic Records, and began on the road to a successful rap career, establishing himself in the lineage created by his father, Rev. Run and uncle, Russell Simmons.

After releasing his debut single, “Copy, Paste” in May 2011, which straight to the top of the 106th and Park countdown, the world is eagerly awaiting what’s next as he puts the finishing touches on his debut album. From being named a member of XXL’s Freshman Class in 2011, to his first BET Awards nomination in the “Young Star Award” category to taking the stage “LIVE” at the 2011 BET Awards Pre-Show, Diggy is undoubtedly the most talked about and sought after young rap superstar. In October, Diggy was nominated for “Rookie of the Year” at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards. Later that month, he released his second single, “Do It Like You (feat. Jeremih),””which shot to the top of the 106th and Park video countdown.
