Yes you read and saw it right! Rev Runs little son Diggy is now rapping and has his own mixtape out and brace yourself for this one… IT IS FIYAH!!!!
When I first heard little Diggy (now 15 years of age by the way) was rapping and had a mixtape out the first thing that came to mind is it’s probably wack as all hell like his brother Jojo’s material with his group Team Black out and more then likley is was kiddy crap that was ghost written by a hired rapper from his pops or Uncle Russel. I’m not one to not have a closed mind and not give something a try so I did and boy let me tell you all the above that came to mind went right out the window after listening to the first track where he does spoken word and I was immediately hooked to hear what else he would come with behind that and on every track he spits versatile bars. Diggy is def for real yall! What really confirmed the realness is this interview he did with Good Fellas Radio. Visually he’s def grown from last seeing him on “Runs House” and on top of that his vocabulary and what he had to say in this interview pretty much confirmed that he more then likely doesn’t have a ghost writer and Atlantic wouldn’t have signed him.
Here’s one of the 2 freestyles Dig did to Nas Made You Look that caught the attention of labels where he eventually choose Atlantic…
What makes this a great mixtape for me is the fact that it doesn’t sound like a mixtape at all. Great production my fairly unknown producers. No Dj’s fuckin up the tracks. It has a great theme through out the whole album. Diggy’s versatility and content is nice. Nice features. And the tracks are just all around nice and all this is coming from a 15 year old! For all that I can’t help but give this album the score I did below. #2 is my shit! Even the Chris Brown feature where Chris sings and spits is dope. Download it and see what I’m talking about and let me know what you think here and be on the look out for Dig in the very near future. Shout out to my ninja James P. Morgan!
