Growing up as the fourth eldest child in a family known for their last name, Daniel Diggy Simmons is proud to be a Simmons, but wants to be known as Diggy the fashion & shoe designer, trendsetter & rapper in his own right. The charming middle son on MTV’s Run’s House, who grew up as America watched, now has the hip-hop community on the edge of their seats, calling him the “Next Hottest Thing.””Diggy is well on his way to a successful rap and fashion career, as well as establishing himself in the lineage created by his father, Rev. Run and uncle, Russell Simmons. After releasing his debut single, “Copy, Paste” in May, the world is eagerly awaiting what’s next as he prepares his debut album. From his ultimate cosign in XXL Magazine 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 musical superstar. Showing no signs of slowing down, the companion video to “Copy, Paste” recently hit the top spot on BET’’s 106th and Park. In October, Diggy was nominated for Rookie of the Year at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards. Later that month, Diggy released his second single, Do It Like You (feat. Jeremih),”which shot to the top of the 106th and Park video countdown.
“As we continue to successfully and most importantly strategically uncover the next generation of young musical stars, we continue to recognize a few artists that continue to stand out,” said Maudlin. “I believe that Diggy is that one at this moment in time. As we continue to assist in molding and directing the paths of young artists, we also focus on giving them maximum exposure as we bring them face to face with their fans across the country. We are proud to be able to do this through this particular concert venture.”
