Rev Run’s Son Diggy Simmons Inks Deal With Atlantic Records

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 03/23/10

Diggy SimmonsAnother one of the children of "Run's House" is following in his father's footsteps by becoming a rapper.

This time, it's Rev Run's middle son, Daniel "Diggy" Simmons.

The 15-year-old Diggy recently inked a recording deal with Atlantic Records, where he'll be releasing his debut album.

"Taking a tour of the Atlantic offices ... This is real surreal right now, its official!" Diggy tweeted (@Diggy_Simmons). "Real thankful just takin it all in!"

Simmons created a buzz for himself with his first mixtape The First Flight, which he dropped late last year. But, according to Rap-Up.com, it wasn't until he freestyled over Nas' "Made You Look" that people began to take notice.

A viral video of the song circulated across the Internet, helping him create a fanbase. From there, labels started reaching out. This week, he joined Atlantic, home to other major recording artists such as T.I., Lupe Fiasco, and Trey Songz.

Diggy blogs about all his fashion and music tastes on his blog, Life of The Jet Setter. Head over there to check out some of his stuff.

Diggy isn't the only Simmons to hit the rap game, his older brother JoJo is part of a rap group called Team Blackout. He was thrilled of his young brother's deal.

"Diggy is gon take over and I'm there to support him! Family don't compete with each other, we complete each other," JoJo wrote on his Twitter.

    @merceds1010, it feels like hate, maybe I'm wrong. He's a little kid we need some of them too. Listen to his freestyle, it's better than I expected.

  • http://mr.mjfresh@gmail.com mercedes1010

    No thanks! I refuse to fall for that bullshit.the only reason he got that deal is because run is his father. He didnt pay no dues nothing but a brat. Just like master p son.you want my respect you gotta earn that deal not given to you on a silver platter.

    I remember the episode when Diggy came in the studio with JoJo & was all shy on the mic. Ha!

    Good shit. Might as well throw his hat in the ring. It may land somewhere decent.
