We get it, diss records are a vital part of Hip-Hop. The spirit of competition in records like Nas’ “Ether” and Jay-Z’s “The Takeover,” for example, whips fans into a frenzy and keeps artists on their toes. However, more often than not, diss records come out lame.
The young fellow, Diggy Simmons, gets back to what brought him to the dance by throwing a few bars on G.O.O.D. Music’s “New God Flow.” The pop tunes may haven’t popped off as he might have wished so it looks like the good Rev’s kid is going back the freestyle route which initially brought him […]
Diggy is back on his BS as he drops a freestyle for the Jahlil Beats-produced, “Burn.” The Meek Mill/Big Sean fire starter gets an assist from the talented memeber of the Simmons clan in which he talks about burying the (seemingly one-sided) hatchet with J.

If you came in here thinking this was an April Fool’s joke then we don’t blame you, but the young Diggy did in fact go at J.Cole for the alleged shots the Roc Nation rapper fired on “Grew Up Fast.” Diggy doesn’t exactly “Ether” his rival, but responds in kind with light buckshots of his […]
