Sneak Peek: Diggy Simmons – ‘Copy, Paste’

Diggy Simmons

Diggy Simmons goes under the microscope in the 30-second preview for “Copy, Paste,” the first single from his debut album. In the Phil the God-directed clip, the 16-year-old son of Rev Run is hooked up to wires in a laboratory as he is examined by female technicians who try to clone him.

“‘Copy, Paste’ is about just giving an anthem to original people, innovators, people that feel like their style’s been copy, pasted,” Diggy told “I’m in a laboratory and I’m hooked up to wires and different stuff. I have like a bandage over my stomach. There’s laboratory girls in the scene, but it’s just about them trying to copy and paste me.”

After you’ve watched the teaser, go behind the scenes with Rap-Up TV.

    Don’t know what to think… Looked slightly boring, but I am excited to see the music video. I like the track, so I hope Diggy cooked up something fresh for us. :-)

    Cher Lloyd needs to take notes.

    Diggy is gone to be big. He has style, flavor, looks and big bucks behind him. Haters


  9. B Sims

    Diggy is the new generation. You were born to be a star.

    love Diggy but this is so generic.

    this kid got a contract just becuz he’s the son of Russell… if he was a random kid, nobody would’ve given out a music contract so easily to him just to make a song full of autotune a.k.a. the magic machine for the talentless

    @mike, He’s his nephew


    Lisa Reply:

    @mike, have you heard any of his previous work? The kid is far beyond his age, and mad lyrical. Copy, Paste has nothing on what he brought out before…

    This is just a more universal sound, that will appeal to a broader audience.

    i can’t take him seriously as an MC.
    something about his mannerisms; seems like he tries waaay too hard. i understand the whole simmons family legacy but i just can’t get into diggy. too much hype because of his last name.


  13. chet

    weak. both the song and video.


  14. thalia

    Diggy is one of the better lyricist of 2011. His age doesn’t define his talented abilities nor does the budget of his video or his last name. I appreciate Diggy’s music and style.

    Note: You don’t need a high-budget video to convey a visual. (i.e. Beyonce – Best Thing I Never Had)

    no one wants to copy-paste this generic garb sorry
