Diggy Simmons HoneyTV Interview: Speaks On Why His Success Isn't A Fluke, How His Parents Feel About His Use Of The "N-Word" & His 'Airborne' Mixtape [Video]


Video After The Jump

Being the son of a hip hop legend could be a hindrance to some people that can't handle the pressure, especially when your chosen field of work is the same. Young MC Diggy Simmons is out to prove he can establish his own identity outside of his father Rev Run's.

"A lot of people ask me that. 'Do you feel pressure? Is it a lot for the fact your uncle is who he is [Russell Simmons], and your dad is [famous]'. But at the end of the day, from the beginning all the way til now, I've always just done me," Diggy says.

Diggy has achieved some success early in the game. At age 15, he already has two mixtapes out, and a deal with Atlantic Records. Some people think he's been over hyped or that his success has been a fluke.

"Of course people are gonna think that it's a fluke because of 'Run's House', you know and where I came from. But if you see how long I've been going with it...I've put out two mixtapes already, and doing my thing on the internet. And didn't even run straight to a single or run straight to a label. You can see that I'm building a career and a fan base, something that's going to have longevity."

Young Dig uses the word "n*gga" quite a bit in his songs. He was asked how his parents feel about that.

"I just feel as long as it's not any other [curse] word. I don't necessarily think that's a curse word. I don't think that's a derogatory term. Over time it became soething positive in the African American community."

Diggy goes on to talk about his sneaker line and his 'Airborne' mixtape that features Chris Brown, Raekwon, Lupe Fiasco and Pharell

lol boywonderar you have a point, of course he got a shoe deal because of his family connects, but his music content speaks for itself completely and its under major scrutiny but he still has very positive reviews, good thing he has connects and attention enough to get his music out there and doesn't have to waste time getting a buzz from the ground level because he's better than many artists out today.

He's got Raekwon on his f*****' mixtape! LOL, I'm sure his album features will be plentiful if even needed. The kid seems really humble and confident, love his content I think he will definitely be one of the top artists to come.

In due time, this young dude is gonna be amongst the best in the game. Pending if he continues to work hard and get better creatively. I already have two of the songs off his 'Airborne' mixtape on one of my mix cds. He's gonna need a lot of support from other known artist on his first studio joint though. I'll definitely keep in tune with young Digg cause he has potential.
