    Diggy is low key "Ill" in his own way,he just needs to find that one thing that will connect him to all of society without chaging himself and persona. he needs more songs like the one he made called "Shook Ones"

  • ronaldo

    I'm so sick of people who hate on Diggy. It's not his fault that his father is Run and that has nothing to do with him beating. I'm sure most of you posting negative comments are just jealous that you can not rap better than him. I'm not saying you have to like him but sheesh. And some people were saying that Jadakiss had the best verse? He was not talking about drugs? Apparently this is what you have to rap about in order to be a rapper right? Oh and you say you do not like Diggy but you had time to listen to your music anyway? Admirers confused. This is his first album, of course he will get better over the next year. Cut him some slack. Do not forget to buy UA 20/03/12 :)

    Why does he rap like somebodys pushing him in the chest when hes spitting?

    Well with that being said, This is a must see, Copy the link http://youtu.be/OxVBn0zi6pw?hd=1

  • Kid Chyllen

    Ya'll are ALL haters. Stop putting so much thought into everything and just enjoy the music. Is that so hard to do ? -___- SMH. Good slbum btw. I thought Atlantic would fuck this one up , but it's pretty good.

  • anon

    Let's just face it. In hip hop people respect those who work their ass off and don't really have things handed to them. That's why people hate on Diggy. He's talking about his money and shit when everyone knows he was born rich and spoiled. He's talking about his 'struggle' to make it when everyone knows he has connections. He needs to be real, then he can get real respect. THE END.

    • anon

      So what do you think he's supposed to rap about then?

    • oh please

      you think that is struggling? gtfoh the only way he could come off real is to talk about some REAL topics. nobody's going to take him seriously talking about money and his 'struggles' trying to be famous when he's already been on a tv show, his family is rich as hell, and he has every connection you could imagine to make his career happen. yea, he's not terrible but anyone decent with his connections could have done the same, or better. people are going to keep judging him the more fake he comes off. thats just how it is. if he came out with some real shit like brendas got a baby shit or something else, maybe people would take him seriously as an artist. but what is he talking about? same old shit as everyone else. step your game up

    • anon

      But he is struggling to make it in a way because of people like you who think he has everything handed to him and you won't even give him a chance.

  • Hoodgrown

    Dudes are crazy. This is a slick album for an introduction. Here's a sixteen year old kid, the album is slickly produced, and he has his own little swag, the album contains no curses, topics vary... it's something my daughters could rock too. There's a couple of songs on here that I would listen to because the overall sound is hot. This is his first album.. he's still developing.. he has his own lane.... Do you Diggy... let these other dudes hate from the sidelines...

  • Jayla

    I am so sick of people hating on Diggy. It's not his fault that Run is his dad and that has nothing to do with him rapping. I'm pretty sure most of you posting the negative comments are just jealous that you can't rap better than him. Not saying you have to like him but sheesh. And some people were saying that Jadakiss had the best verse? Wasn't he talking about drugs? Apparently that's what you have to rap about in order to be a good rapper? Oh. And you say you don't like Diggy but you took time to listen to his album anyway? Confused admirers. This is his first album, of course he's gonna get better during the next few years. Cut him some slack. Don't forget to buy UA 3.20.12 :)

  • MarkOne

    sounds aight. his "past presents future" mixtape was straight ill compared to this.

  • anon

    I mean, you already have your dad who basically opened all the doors for you. Nobody seriously thinks Diggy made these connections on his own because all he has to say is "I'm diggy" and he automatically will get at least a listening session. He's already got a foot in the door. So, why come out and talk about shit like how rich you are and what you're spending money on, how you're trying to make it, and all that bullshit. Nobody really believes you had to struggle to make it, so why even include the 'making it' theme in your lyrics? Talk about some other shit. Social issues, family, whatever. Then you grew up rich on a TV show most of the USA has seen and you want to talk about your money and shit. :T So unoriginal

  • anon

    This is not terrible, but it doesn't stand out either. I would give it a 6 out of 10. Beats: 8/10 He obviously got some good production, a few misses here and a few gems. Lyrics: 5/10 Not terrible but an incredible amount of cliches. I feel like I've heard all his lines before. The problem with this album is there's only a few tracks I would consider listening to again, but it's ruined because of his voice. I really feel like diggy doesn't really mix well with the beats he chose. He can't help his voice, but he should have come out with a more original style instead of trying to do whatever everyone else is doing. That's his main problem, and why people keep hating on him. His image is too 'do what everyone else is doing'. If he came off as more real, saying something original, with original lyrics and not using cliches in every rap, people would take him more seriously. One person here said it well, he's just a better version of Lil Bow Wow trying to be like a Kanye. If I were his manager, I wouldn't let him put out anything that isn't incredibly original. He's going to spend his entire career shaking off this stigma about his credibility, not because of his dad, but because he is just not that original of an artist.

  • Anonymous

    It's not even the connections that bother me about this kid, he's just an incredibly derivative rapper. He's doing nothing I can't hear done better on a lot of dudes albums, and there's no heart to any of it. It's just a soulless listen. Jadakiss proves what a real rapper could do, and its truly the only good moment of the album.

  • Anonymous

    I wonder why he didn't feature Jo Jo or Rev Run?

  • Real Talk

    Kinda boring to be honest. He is too mono-tone. But he is young so he will get better. The album flows pretty good. Some of the beats could be better.

  • SBoogie

    Not for me. I'm not hating but his album is for his album's audience, if you're over 23, you're probably not going to like this.

    Is it just me or is this really good? O_O wtf

  • Anonymous

    Just let me put this out there for everyone that's hating and claiming he got everything from his dad. That's not the case what so ever. Diggy had connections with out the help of his dad. He did everything on his on. Don't believe me? Watch the interviews. He can't help that his dad is who his dad is but he didn't abuse it either like JoJo did. So listen to the album or don't listen to it. But don't bash him.He's come really far with out the help of his dad. I'm proud of him

    wow it does seem like lil daniel "diggy" stole the concept from that artist named Rockz and his song 88 is actually better then diggy's no hating just stating facts. According to youtube this kid had the song 88 since January and the hook sounds almost identical just faster on digs version.

    You sound like the core demographic of Diggy's. Young. Unemployed. Living at home. Do your thing bro.

    • rick

      so is he supposed to move to the ghetto and start there? why should he apologize for his parents working hard being successful and opening doors for him like they're supposed to? are you one of those poor niggas who resent rich people simply because they're rich? even if they're good people? bitter ass nigga. cant stand you bitter ass niggas with a self righteous complex.

      And when you point out the jealousy, the insults ensue.

    It is his fault because just like the older brother, Diggy is using his father's connections to fund his project. Without that advantage, he'd be at home playing PS3.

    Diggy is aight kids. I mean, I'm not trying to compare to his legendary dad but if Diggy wants to make it big, he has to sound big. Lyrically, he is decent but he is more of a teen rapper, like the better version of Lil Bow Wow. Honestly, I find nothing really interesting about him other than the fact he can freestyle pretty well. That's the problem with rappers these days. They all sound the same. They lack character. I know Diggy is still young and has to really develop but I don't think he is serious. He sounds more like a talented kid having fun rather than a serious emcee. There is too much of that teenage pop star thing in him, which is probably one of his biggest potential selling points. I'm not hating on the kid but I doubt the album will be that good.

    • R.Pgh

      Not sure how old you are or what your profession is, but most of us have matured intellectually since we were 15 years old. He's a kid. His life experiences as a teenager aren't going to, nor should they, resonate with an adult.

    • Anonymous

      He IS a teenager. If you're looking for him to please a grown crowd (don't know how old you are) then you're looking at the wrong rapper. Let him grab the 9-16 year old crowd and take them away from the Rosses' & Odd Futures of the rap game. If you didn't notice, there's no parental advisory sticker on the cover. I will be buying this for my nephew, he's 11. And you were kind of hating.

    This is the type of cover Chris Brown would have for his album.

    Diggy has some decent bars. Imma give his albulm a listen for sure

  • da1

    It's nice to see he doesn't have alot of guest features like most rappers. It's cool to see he's trying to hold an album on his own. He is pretty lyrical for his age. You know I might cop this shit, just to support a nigga trying to make it big.

  • Alf Capone

    wow! this is gone be a clasic piece of shit. nothin against da lil nigga. i guess im just jealous da nigga got every opportunity. even if da nigga album bricks he can just say fuck it and call mtv and do a reality tv show or some shit

  • Anonymous

    Sadly, the BET set probably loves this. The problem I have is anyone who watched Run's House knew all his kids were given everything. The older bro would beg his Dad to make a call and get a big name producer to come to the house. Tell me that didn't happen with Diggy.

    • R.Pgh

      It's not Diggy's fault his father was successful. If your dad Run, you'd probably take advantage of the situation that was given to you too. The kid has some decent lyrics. I won't anoint him the next Nas or anything, but for a teenager to spit some positive lyrics is some pretty real shit. I'm not going to blame him for his parents success. I don't know if this album will sell because most kids aren't into music with a message. He's likely too mature for his age demographic, but too young to reach hip hop fans who are into conscious lyrics. Not going to lie and say I'll cop it, but I wish the young dude luck.

      lol Yes there are. There are things called touch latches, recessed knife handles that are placed on the side of the door and basically hidden, ball bearing and roller catches that are placed on the upper and lower part of the door, and magnetic latches, only the magnet that it comes with can open that door. On doors. Around the world. You never seen a door with latches on the inside and a plate that says PUSH on the outside?

    All I can think is when I use to watch Run's House and he was the middle lil' brother...and he was spoooiiillleedddd rotten! And the big brother was the rapper...then all of a sudden it's this dude? I respect Run...and everything he did for hip-hop...but I'll be god damned if his son isn't only on because of his name...

    • R.Pgh

      that doesn't really make sense because JoJo is Runs kid as well, and he's had next to no success. Diggy might have been given a rise to fame much easier, but the name only doesn't mean that much. He has some decent lyrics for a teenager. You can't blame him for using his upbringing as an advantage. You would do the same thing. It's obvious he has some sort of talent or his light would have burnt out already like JoJo's did.

    Diggy would not be anywhere without his daddy, man I cant believe this is what hiphop is now. Equal oppurtunity is unreal

    • R.Pgh

      and Snoop or Eminem wouldn't have got to where they are at without Dre. Michael Jackson wouldn't have been as big without the help of Berry Gordie & Quincy Jones. Most people got to where they are because of who they know. Not just in hip hop but in life. Don't blame him for taking advantage of his upbringing. It comes off as jealousy. JoJo is/was a rapper too, but he didn't get hardly any shine. They have the same dad, so why not? Maybe Diggy actually has some talent....
