Diggy Simmons Breaks Down "Unforgivable Blackness" And Why He's One Of The Last Real Emcees

Exclusive: Hu$tle Simmons discusses the much talked about track from his debut LP, "Unexpected Arrival" regarding race and class and its declaration by Diggy to be the last of a dying breed.

It happened to his Atlantic Records label-mate around this time last year when Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers was almost instantly panned by the Hip Hop masses for its shinier sounding, radio-ready selections, leaving the potentially powerful effects of the brilliant revisal of racial identity, “All Black Everything,” and the cunning message-music masquerading as a slick R&B number, “Coming Up,” to be lost to the indifferent dismissal in whole of Lupe’s ill-fated third full-length.  
 
Currently, the same throwing out the baby with the bathwater mentality is affecting Diggy Simmons, as the young emcee is enduring the sting of self-aggrandizing critics and other judgmental detractors who have maligned his debut full-length, the recently released Unexpected Arrival, with similar complaints regarding sound and style all the while overlooking the surprisingly sharp lines and clever concepts of “Tom Edison.” Additional gripes about everything from Diggy’s prosperous upbringing to his fanbase of fawning teenage girls have like Lupe similarly suffocated his rhyming dissertations on race, class and personal progress and thus the potential of one of Hip Hop’s most promising new voices.  

It was with that current state of affairs in mind that the remarkably mature 17-year-old was asked during his discussion with HipHopDX yesterday (April 11th) to deconstruct arguably the most unfairly overlooked selection from his debut, “Unforgivable Blackness,” to help the currently critical to possibly “think twice” about Diggy. Concluding his quick Q&A with DX, the son of Rev Run of the legendary Run-DMC additionally addressed his bold declaration that punctuates that stirring song: “The real emcees, I’m the last of it.”

HipHopDX: First off I just wanna say that I personally think “Do It Like You” is one of the most refreshing radio records I’ve heard in recent memory.

Diggy: Thank You.  

DX: I would much rather hear you rhyming about a cutie that reminds you of your Mom than hear grown men rapping about racks or drank.
 
Diggy: [Laughs] That means a lot man. Thank You.

DX: Now, the song from Unexpected Arrival I really wanna delve into with you isn’t one of your chick-chasing cuts – although I should quickly note on behalf of my 16-year-old niece and all of your other female fans that “4 Letter Word” needs to be your next single if you wanna avoid a riot by teenage girls across the nation. [Laughs]

Diggy: [Laughs] It’s crazy, man. I’ve been all over since the album dropped and so to hear how many people’s favorite that is – without it even being on the radio – and hear people sing it to me is like the most flattering thing ever.

DX: The song I wanna discuss with you a little bit more in-depth is actually “Unforgivable Blackness.” First, did you get that title from Geoffrey C. Ward’s 2004 biography of the same name on the first Black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson?

Diggy: I didn’t, and I didn’t even know that he used that. Actually, I really wanted to do a track that was as thought-provoking as “Unforgivable Blackness” but I didn’t have it towards the end of the [album recording] process. I did the majority of the album in L.A. [And], it was very scattered. I started the album in January of 2011 and I had been on like three tours [between] January of ’11 and when we ended the album in February of 2012. So when I got off the road – [from] the Scream Tour Holiday Edition, which was December of 2011 – I was about to go on my last trip to L.A. and I was just thinking to myself like, “Man, I didn’t make this track yet. I wanna do something that just talks about African-American culture and the way we treat each other and how far we’ve come, as far as equality and freedom.” And “Unforgivable Blackness” was what I thought about, and I was like, “This title, it fits.” So that’s where it came from.

DX: And why did you decide to speak more specifically about the friction that exists between the different economic classes of Black folks?

Diggy: Because some people are like you are cut from a different cloth than me or you come from a different place so you’re not as Black as me. But it’s crazy because your ancestor and one of mine could have been on the same ship together about to be slaves.

It’s very crazy to know that people are like you’re not as down as me just because you came from a certain place. And I had a girl, a fan of mine, recently [direct message me through Twitter] me and was like, “I go through the same thing. I have kids in my school that are like just because you’re this type of person you’re not as Black as me or you’re not as down as me.” Which is like the craziest - I don’t even know what to call it … but it’s very crazy.

DX: “We’ve both seen racism on the same level.” Can you share a particular incident you personally experienced where your “father’s wallet size” didn’t prevent you from experiencing the wrath of race-based hate?

Diggy: Yeah, there have definitely been instances. Not like anything really, really crazy but things that made me feel a certain type of way. Because like, when you’re younger you’ll hear about [racism] and learn about it, but have you been through an instance, just one that’s been like somebody racist towards you? It’s crazy when it happens. It really makes you feel so angry inside of yourself. And it’s like until it happens you never really know how it feels. And so when it happened it was insane, like just the feeling that I got from it.

DX: “They wanna take away my Black card ‘cause I got a black card/Say I don’t rap hard ‘cause I don’t act hard/But if I act hard they would say that’s odd/And they would still hate, I don’t get that part?” Have you basically conceded that you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t?

Diggy: Exactly. It’s like, it really doesn’t matter [what I do]. People are gonna think that way, but what I want that song to do is [make] the people with that type of thought process think twice. Like, “Wow, I really feel this way?” I say [in the song], “Kill your brother and it’s you that you only destroy.” You’re looking at a mirror image of somebody that is an African-American male as young as you – or you could be older than him, it doesn’t matter – and you’re trying to tear down the same exact person that you are, which is crazy.

DX: The last quote I wanna ask you about from that song is one that’s not nearly as heavy but is easily as eye-grabbing: “I don’t rap for the cash in it/I do it ‘cause I’m passionate/It’s my destiny I have to spit/The real emcees I’m the last of it.” Now, you know some Hip Hop heads are gonna bug out at that last declaration, but what do you say to the HipHopDX faithful makes you one of the last real emcees?

Diggy: I mean, I personally just think I am. Lyrically, my content, subject matter, just everything that I’m about makes me feel that I am. And it’s not coming from a cocky place or anything; it’s just the way that I feel about myself. And I feel like that’s how everybody should be: not look for approval from others to feel as though they can be or do whatever it is that they want to do. You have to have that belief in yourself before the rest of the world is gonna have it. So I feel as though I’m an emcee and I just wanna give Hip Hop something to be proud of.

  • Success

    I appreciate what this young man is bringing to the rap industry because all that is being rapped about, these days, are topics that degrade women, getting money and some if not most of these lyrics by these certain artists are PACKED with expletives. Diggy's music is clean and anyone at all can listen to it and can relate. For this 17 yr old to be able to take up the challenge of rapping about what many people still face today is a brave move as some other rappers ignore this. His lyrical content is quite impressive and he has the right confidence. If he wants to say that he is the last real emcee left then he is. I listened to his album and was amazed. His future is BRIGHT !

    The kid Diggy is right, he is one of the last real MC's that out there and i'm a hood nigga to the bone. Come up rich or come up poor doesn't have anything to do nothing. If you got skills, that's what matters and if you don't then rapping is not for you. Shout out to Diggy and keep up the good work. Shalom

  • Anonymous

    the real deal is, a lot of you guys are just pissed that your parents are such fucks up they couldn't set you on a distinct path to have a fulfilling life. Diggy is a talented young artist (not the greatest by any means) but he's hungry, and passionate about his art. You can't even say that basic line, "passionate about his art", in regards to 90% of the mainstream artists that are out right now. It's not his fault who his dad is. If we all had a choice, every one of us would have Oprah as our Mom and William Buffet or Bill Gates as our dad. The richest motherfuckers on the planet. So everybody hating on young Dig for being born into a wealthy family, you're just a poor, bitter, pathetic, no life, no ambition, no goals, no girl, no nothing, but this website and your stupid windows 98 computer you stole from your grandmother or something. Black people especially need to get their life together and look at Diggy Simmons as the positive role model you will never be for the ridiculous amount of children you're bringing into this world, sick, sad, little world. Cheers to You Diggy!

    Suave: Keep up the good work Diggy. Yes, that is a problem in the black community with some blacks especially ones that grew up in the hood thinking they are more black than someone that is from the suburbs or middle class family. To me a lot of stuff that go on in the hood is on some uncle tom and willie lynch shit. I got out the hood and I just took a chance even if it ment I was going to be homeless. Six year later Im make 45,000 a year and I live in the suburbs now and if take a few more test and pass I will be making 60 plus. I wish people in the hood understand its alright to leave and make something better of yourself quit be scared to get out the hood. I use to gang bang and do dirt but at some point you have to just get fed up. You will have dumbass people saying Im from the hood and Im going to die in the hood. Why do you want to die young? Thats slave shit. I sell crack because Im not going to work for the white man...lol. Thats stupid as fuck. You selling the white man drugs and use their guns to kill your own people. I mena damn we are lost as fuck and you got dumb ass rappers supporting and like its cool to kill our own people with drugs and guns. I got friends that say man its hard in the hood everybody can get out but when I tell you a way to get out you dont want to do it for dudes like that I say fuck em. Shit its on you. Like how hard is it to get a trade or learn how to drive trucks. You can make 15-20 dollars a hours...smh. We lost man its some sad shit. I refuse to give money when I come to the hood but I will drop knowledge and thats all I can do. I've waken up and hopefully others will but when you lived a certain way your whole life you dont want to change because you scared. In the past 6 years I have buried 4 close friends some Ive known since I was 4 years old. Not to mention at least 15 class mates. Why would someone want to stay somewhere where you are a target. You cant have anything nice beceause niggaz will take unless you know for killing niggaz so at the end of the day you can say what you want about me but Im safe and I have a good job and married. To my brothers man its time for chaged...that is all. Realest post ever. Fuck gangster-ism

  • TROUBLESOMENDN

    This young dude does have talent. Just because he came from a High class home doesn't mean he should be over looked and criticized for it. Hes not claiming to be hard or hood. Hes just starting out. If he continues to use the same subject matter and substance in his next projects as he did with this track he will make it and only get better. I can't say I dig all of his tracks, but the kid gots some talent. Don't let his upbringing overshadow his skill/hunger to be heard and innovate. Much respect to him. He'll push 100k+ with his Lp and downloads which is a pretty good debut. Some cats aren't even doing that with the same type of promotion. Can't hate him for doing his thing and being him self.

  • kennyken

    man, looka here, we can't hate on this lil cat. he's blood of a creator. so why isn't he a creator? LL used to be something like this. and still is. but ain't nothing wrong with this but it's for young cats.

    Thats the new shit, what you do is you drop a garbage ass album than you be like "I was too real that's all" The real problem is hip hop is supposed to innovate, nothing about these rappers style, image or product is innovative. I cant think of the last time I seen a new rapper and was stunned as to what they was bringin to the table

  • .....

    Yeah, there are plenty of real MC's....they just don't give em a chance unless they talk about bullshit......

  • The Assassin

    Yeah, when I think of real MCs, Diggy Simmons comes to mind. He's just another rapper no straight male hip hop fan take seriously like Bow Wow and Romeo, his fanbase is made up of teenage girls and that's it

  • Change

    I can't say Diggy is an MC yet because he doesn't rap or do very intricate things on the mic so I can't accept that label yet. However, I will say that if he did write the track "Unforgiveable Blackness" then that track is dope. The best track on the entire album/mixtape whatever it is. It is just good all around. I like the concept & it's message in the chorus. If he keeps making some good shit like that with substance then I can mess with him more. For now I'll just sift through his crappy works to find the gems.

    I don't really give a fuck about his upbringing, as long as he's not fake about his upbringing. Which, he's not. Not that I'm aware of anyway. However, what I do care about is, how can you have lyrics like "They wanna take away my Black card cause I got a black card/Say I dont rap hard cause I dont act hard/But if I act hard they would say thats odd/And they would still hate, I dont get that part?" and then turn around and say you think you're one of the last real mc's and you're lyrical and shit. Yeah, the concept and subject matter is good. But the execution is horrible. Honestly weak as shit lyrics.

    • Hip Hopper

      Co-sign. Emcees that got a dope rap style but can't get shine because mainstream rappers compare themselfs to other mainstream rappers.If you come out bold claiming the last real mc be ready to prove that. Because rappin technique can make or break an emcee. Diggy would have to change up his rap style and get producers who can make cuts to cater to that style.

  • AP

    I wonder if people actually read their own comments. It's disgraceful. I dont usually use the word "hater" because that word is mainly misused. But, in this case you people are haters. You hate the fact he came up wealthy and that automatically disqualifies him as a real mc. The dude is 16 and he already raps with more intellect than most of these cats out today. People love to tear down than rather build up.

    Well naturally because of who his father is, he was going to get a leg up in this particular career choice. It's the way of the world.. as long as he doesn't act a tool and start abusing his envious position, then it shouldn't really bother anyone. He reads like an alright guy.. ain't bothered to listen to him yet though.

  • Anonymous

    That's the problem with young, rich kids. They have everything handed to them, but instead of just acknowledging it, maybe even taking a few jabs at it, they pretend their influence is so great. They don't realize what "being hungry" really means, lyrically speaking. You don't have to apologize for having money, but don't act like suddenly you're the best of the best.

    One of the last real emcees are you serious?! This kid is only in the rap game cuz his pops is Rev Run from the legendary Run DMC. He makes pop raps for little teenage girls. hahah hes like bow wow. Sayin that is disrespect to rappers like Nas, Jay Z, Eminem, Talib, and many more who are the true real emcees.

    Just cuz his father was in the music business doesn't mean he has too also.... He's had everything handed to him and is afraid of hard work... How about he uses mommy and daddy's money to get an education and become a lawyer or teacher or something else... Rather than blowing his family's money on stupid shit like trying to rap...

  • Hip Hopper

    It seems like Diggy is tryin to get his own respect in this interview. Its not like you can pick the circemstances of the family your born into. Black people that read this know where I'm comin from. We are quick to judge another black person based on social class. I'm not rich, I live in a low-middle class neighborhood mixed with all races. But the worst kinds of people are the ones who think there better than somebody because they're in a higher class. Diggys family is rich but they don't act like they better than other black people because they are rich. Rev and Rusell built that fortune by becoming rap lengends, diggy is not to blame for that. And you internet thugs that claim that diggy is a spoiled brat don't understand that is nothin wrong with havin to much money its all about being yourself and the atittude you have toward your fans that's way poorer than you.

      Wiz actually got his own buzz up before signing to a major label. Big Sean is a similar situation. Even though he got signed, still had to build his buzz and make a hit. These labels dont push artists anymore unless they are proven hitmakers.

    • The MH

      Labels don't take time to develop artist anymore. You either make a hit or they will not pay you or market you. The last artists I know who sat under a label being developed for years before finding a solid sound and fan base is Wiz. And maybe Big Sean. Artist need to be developed, so they know how to be themselves in an appropriate artistic way. Not just signed and forced to "make a hit".

    Ahahaha, who the fuck is Diggy Simmons? Looks like a fucking huge pussy.

  • SB1070

    Of course Diggy didn't reach his status on his own, he was born with it; however, he strives to become something that wont just be given to him and that's a struggle in it's own right. Considering his unique circumstances, he has a tough road ahead of him. It takes a lot to attempt to reach the number one spot especially if your Dad was number one at one point and your uncle is a Juggernaut in the industry. I would think that many people would just be content if they were born in Diggy's status and fight their desire to become an artist especially in this genre due to the criticism, hate and pressure. I for one think he is clever and just as "REAL" as many MC's to head-on the issue.

    So Diggy should just stay in the house and do nothing because of who his father is? ANYONE would take advantage of Diggy's connects. If you don't like his music, don't buy it. But you can't bash him for having pull. Lucky him. Now let me get back to work while yall beat off on the couch.

    Wow I feel so sorry for someone whose worst problem is not being considered Black enough. This privileged fuck is like the Mitt Romney of rap: no one actually likes him and we wouldn't even know about him if daddy didn't do everything for him. Spend your time being thankful rather than bitching about your tiny problems

      you dont understand in the black community to be called a uncle tom or sell out is the worst thing you can call a black man. Especially if you are black and you call another black man that. Thats worse than someone white calling a black person a nigga. If someone white call you a nigger lover because you like hip hop would you like that feeling I doubt it.

    Keep up the good work Diggy. Yes, that is a problem in the black community with some blacks especially ones that grew up in the hood thinking they are more black than someone that is from the suburbs or middle class family. To me a lot of stuff that go on in the hood is on some uncle tom and willie lynch shit. I got out the hood and I just took a chance even if it ment I was going to be homeless. Six year later Im make 45,000 a year and I live in the suburbs now and if take a few more test and pass I will be making 60 plus. I wish people in the hood understand its alright to leave and make something better of yourself quit be scared to get out the hood. I use to gang bang and do dirt but at some point you have to just get fed up. You will have dumbass people saying Im from the hood and Im going to die in the hood. Why do you want to die young? Thats slave shit. I sell crack because Im not going to work for the white man...lol. Thats stupid as fuck. You selling the white man drugs and use their guns to kill your own people. I mena damn we are lost as fuck and you got dumb ass rappers supporting and like its cool to kill our own people with drugs and guns. I got friends that say man its hard in the hood everybody can get out but when I tell you a way to get out you dont want to do it for dudes like that I say fuck em. Shit its on you. Like how hard is it to get a trade or learn how to drive trucks. You can make 15-20 dollars a hours...smh. We lost man its some sad shit. I refuse to give money when I come to the hood but I will drop knowledge and thats all I can do. I've waken up and hopefully others will but when you lived a certain way your whole life you dont want to change because you scared. In the past 6 years I have buried 4 close friends some Ive known since I was 4 years old. Not to mention at least 15 class mates. Why would someone want to stay somewhere where you are a target. You cant have anything nice beceause niggaz will take unless you know for killing niggaz so at the end of the day you can say what you want about me but Im safe and I have a good job and married. To my brothers man its time for chaged...that is all.

    this kid is delusional if he thinks hes on of the last real emcees sorry diggy you only got a deal because of your daddy

    • max

      ^^ exactly Anon... the real deal is, a lot of you guys are just pissed that your parents are such fucks up they couldn't set you on a distinct path to have a fulfilling life. Diggy is a talented young artist (not the greatest by any means) but he's hungry, and passionate about his art. You can't even say that basic line, "passionate about his art", in regards to 90% of the mainstream artists that are out right now. It's not his fault who his dad is. If we all had a choice, every one of us would have Oprah as our Mom and William Buffet or Bill Gates as our dad. The richest motherfuckers on the planet. So everybody hating on young Dig for being born into a wealthy family, you're just a poor, bitter, pathetic, no life, no ambition, no goals, no girl, no nothing, but this website and your stupid windows 98 computer you stole from your grandmother or something. Black people especially need to get their life together and look at Diggy Simmons as the positive role model you will never be for the ridiculous amount of children you're bringing into this world, sick, sad, little world. Cheers to You Diggy!

      If that was the only reason then his brother JoJo should be signed to a major label too.

    • uzee

      ignorance is one of the major reasons a lot of u cats hate give diggy a chance to prove what he claims because it all starts from u telling urself who u are no matter what people think.
