New Music: Diggy Simmons f/ B.o.B & Key Wane – ‘Mama Said’

Diggy Simmons

Diggy Simmons has laid low all year, but he unwraps a new song for his Jetsetters just in time for Christmas. The 18-year-old rapper, who once vowed to never curse in his music, shows that’s he grown up since his 2012 debut Unexpected Arrival. He freely drops the F and N-words while spitting rapid-fire rhymes on the B.o.B-assisted “Mama Said.”

“I know you can’t believe it, motherfu**er,” says Diggy, who shares some surprising advice from his mama.

“My mama said don’t be afraid to shit on all these ni**as,” sings Key Wane, who also produced the track.

Diggy is readying his sophomore album for a 2014 release.

New Music: Diggy Simmons f/ Victoria Monet – ‘Fall Down’ (J. Cole Diss)

Diggy Simmons and J. Cole

Don’t mess with Diggy. The 17-year-old MC goes at J. Cole once again on “Fall Down,” the first offering from his upcoming mixtape Out of This World. After dissing him previously on the leaked record “What You Say to Me,” Diggy fires more shots despite reports of the two settling their beef.

He raps, “I guess I rattled you, snaggletooth, you know better/ Thought J. stood for Jermaine, not Jetsetter/ You see me and shook my hand, coppin’ pleas in person/ Now you act less than a man, mentioning me in verses/ Man, you used to have dreams of my big sister kissing ya/ Now it’s nightmares of a little brother dissin’ ya/ Sneak disses and jabs, I don’t really see the benefit, but I guess you lame enough, probably keep you relevant/ Maybe you should sign with me instead of Mr. Carter/ How you mad at me, I got a relationship with my father.”

He puts one final nail in the coffin. “This verse might as well be a hearse, killed you, ain’t even curse, ni**a.”

Does the second time sting more than the first? Listen and weigh in below.

Rev Run and Diggy Simmons

In celebration of Father’s Day, some of hip-hop and R&B’s familiar faces pay tribute to the dedicated dads. Tank, Nick Cannon, Ice-T, Bobby Brown, The-Dream, Diggy Simmons, and more reminisce with BET on their fondest memories, while showing love to their own.

The-Dream shares what makes a good Father’s Day gift, Elle Varner reveals the unfashionable item her father bought her from Costco, and 17-year-old Diggy cherishes every moment he spends with his famous father, Rev Run.

Nick Cannon, whose twins Monroe and Moroccan turned one in April, is enjoying fatherhood. “I’ve always been a family person, so just that idea of when you see them start to recognize and understand who their parents are between me and my wife, and them to take after certain traits and habits that we have, that’s the thing that’s really important to me,” he said.

Happy Father’s Day!
