Daniel "Diggy" Simmons has the hip-hop community on the edge of their seats, calling him the "Next Hottest Thing." In 2010, Diggy teamed up with video director Phil The God to create a viral video that caught the attention of the entire music world. "Flow Stoopid," a freestyle track over Nas' "Made You Look," received instant co-signs from rap heavy hitters ranging from Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West to Common, and Talib Kweli, and quickly became an instant viral sensation. In March 2010, Diggy inked a deal with Atlantic Records, and began on the road to a successful rap career, establishing himself in the lineage created by his father, Rev. Run and uncle, Russell Simmons. After releasing his debut single, "Copy, Paste" in May 2011, the world eagerly awaited what was next, as he put the finishing touches on his debut album. From being named a member of XXL's Freshman Class in 2011, to his first BET Awards nomination in the "Young Star Award" category to taking the stage "LIVE" at the 2011 BET Awards Pre-Show, Digy is undoubtedly the most talked about and sought after young rap superstar. October 2011 saw Diggy receive a nomination for "Rookie of the Year" at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards, as well as releasing his second single, "Do It Like You (feat. Jeremih)" which shot to the top of the 106th and Park video countdown.
"As we continue to successfully and most importantly strategically uncover the next generation of young musical stars, we continue to recognize a few artists that continue to stand out," said Maudlin. "I believe that Diggy is that one at this moment in time. As we continue to assist in molding and directing the paths of young artists, we also focus on giving them maximum exposure as we bring them face to face with their fans across the country. We are proud to be able to do this through this particular concert venture."
