Diggy Simmons, Rev. Run’s middle son, just got the best birthday gift ever: a record deal.
The reality TV star and burgeoning rapper inked a deal with Atlantic Records just one day after his 15th birthday. His big sister Angela Simmons was on hand for the momentous occasion and snapped a pic of Dig signing on the dotted line.
Diggy and his skills have been generating a buzz since he dropped The First Flight, his mixtape, back in December.
We have to say, this dude definitely has some flow, which should make it easier for him to garner the respect he seeks as an artist
“Since I was younger I’ve had a vivid vision of where I wanted to be before this was all over,” Diggy wrote about his music career to his followers on Twitter. “Not living a certain way, but being considered as a certain person the best that ever did it, G.O.A.T. etc. And me being 15 now and moving at a fast pace I’m thankful that I feel that, that vision of mine doesn’t seem so far fetched.”
Details of the contract haven’t been released yet, but we’re super excited for him. We can’t knock his grind.
