Diggy Simmons Vows to Never Curse on His Records

Diggy Simmons

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.

    @Yeah, He First Said: “I wouldn’t say anything in the first place that would be shameful to my family anyway” Then He Say’s: “but I am me at the end of the day.”

    If Your, You Why Are Caring About What Your Family Thinks? Little Contradiction There, Maybe?

    Good. It’s like these days people use curse words as filler. In music, movies, even regular conversations.

    Friend: Yo Jon! You seen that sh!t? It was like a f*ckin BIRD or some SH!T! SH!T was f*ckin crazy!

    Go go Digby! I like him a lot. I think this is how you do things, by carving a path for yourself.

    I don’t think cussing makes or break an artist, talent and well, hustling do, but for me if all an artist does is cussing then I consider they have an alternate motive and I don’t want any part in hearing it. Just a choice..

    I also feel there’s so many ways to be “edgy” or “hard”!..it’d be a bit a bit sad if cussing became synonymous with being hard..or even creative..

    Maybe never cuss again cuz he’s already cussed on a lot of his songs on the “Airborne” mixtape. I’ll probably listen to him regardless but im just sayin.

  29. @blogstodiefor

    I think that’s a very good idea especially for his fans that are his age or younger. Good image to put out. I bet his father is proud of him for that one. I can’t imagine why this would negatively affect his image/career. Go, Digg.
