Daniel Wayne "Diggy" Simmons III is hip-hop royalty. This young man (born in 1995!) is the son of Joseph "Rev. Run" Simmons, co-founder of the legendary Run-D.M.C., and the nephew of Russell Simmons.
He might be young but he's already on the rise courtesy of a run of mixtapes and freestyles. Check out his freestyle over Mobb Deep's "Shook Ones" for proof; it's got wit to spare ("y'all got Mickey D pockets and caviar taste"). He's a Kanye-approved, lightning-speed rapper who's being mentored by Pharrell. Hell, he's already got his own clothing line — Chivalrous Culture. His recent debut, "Unexpected Arrival," boasted the Jadakiss-guest track "88," a minimal, bass-heavy jam.
Check out "88" after the jump.
