People may be familiar with Diggy Simmons as Reverend Run’s second-oldest son on the show “Run’s House.” But Diggy has been steadily building a name for himself as an MC – and somewhat of a young fashionista – thanks in large part to his blog and his mixtape, First Flight. And anyone who was still unfamiliar with Diggy took notice when he released a video of himself freestyling over Nas’ “Made You Look” throughout the streets of New York.


So far the video has received nearly 200,000 views and positive reception. Kanye West even posted the video on his blog, saying, “I KNEW THIS KID WAS [GOING] TO BE FRESH. I KNEW IT!” Diggy said he was honored by the compliment from West. Diggy has also just inked a recording deal with Atlantic Records, where he will release his debut album.
