Diggy Simmons has been named as one of XXL’s Freshman of 2011 (11 of the hottest prospects in HipHop/Rap right now) and rightfully so. Granted; he has the best mentor any aspiring rapper could ask for in the form of Run DMC founder Rev Run – his father, but he hasn’t rested on his laurels.

He has the witty lyrics of someone twice his age and as you can see from the freestyle below, he flows effortlessly.

Here’s what Diggy had to say on being selected for the Freshman Cover; “Being here means a lot. It’s always been something I thought was real cool, as a new artist to be on, and it was something that I wanted to be on this year. When I heard [I made it], I was like, ‘What?’ You know, that’s something I was freaking out over, because I was putting in all this hard work, and to see it, you know, actually see the things come to past my ways, it’s just crazy. There are certain goals that people wanna reach, and being a new artist, I’m sure—well, hip-hop artist—I’m sure being on the Freshmen [cover] is one of them. And that was something that I definitely wanted to do. I mean, being here is crazy.”

We were blown away by the supremely talented baby Simmons when we first heard his ‘Rising To The Top’ Freestyle and now, much to our delight, Diggy has released a video for another freestyle; this time over the Mobb Deep beat ‘Shook Ones’.

We’re loving what he’s putting out. This boy has huge potential!

“As my career keep rising to the top, I feel like Diddy but im Diggy can’t stop won’t stop / Putting out heat rocks, rising to beat top / Been a long time coming like Dre and Detox”

Wow. Talk about lyrical content, this kid is years ahead of himself!

Diggy Simmons is all grown up (well hes still only 15); rhyming over a Keni Burke beat which is almost twice his age! He’s definitely learnt from the best.
