Don’t expect to hear Diggy Simmons drop the F-bomb. Rev Run’s 16-year-old son is going against the grain and refraining from cursing in his music.
“When people hear me say certain types of things, they say, I wonder what Rev would think,” Diggy told 93.9 WKYS. “I wouldn’t say anything in the first place that would be shameful to my family anyway, but I am me at the end of the day.”
And staying true to himself means not using profanity, even though his peers may do so. “That’s not even me trying to be clean. I don’t need it, I don’t need to curse in my rhymes or in any of my songs,” explained a confident Diggy.
So far he’s made good on his word with his popular mixtapes and single “Copy Paste,” and sees no need to change. “Honestly, I haven’t really sat down and said, when I’m older I’m gonna curse or when I’m older, I’m not, but I don’t see myself cursing anytime soon,” he said. “I don’t think I should ever use it, honestly. I guess I’m making the decision now, I’m never gonna curse. There’s no point.”
Diggy’s vulgarity-free debut is tentatively due this December on Atlantic Records.
