You’re working on your debut CD right now, what’s the title?

Who have you worked with on the CD?
Diggy Simmons: I can’t say.
Who are you’re influences in music?
Diggy Simmons: I have so many especially in other genres but I’ll stick to Hip Hop like Jay-Z, definitely musically of course and the way he’s taken himself as an artist to businessman and entrepreneur to CEO and Kanye (West) of course too creatively he always raises the bar with what he does and takes risks and Lupe (Fiasco) is another person, he’s out of Chi-Town is someone that I look up to as an influence and like a big brother to me as well.
Will people be surprised by the sound of the CD?
Diggy Simmons: Definitely, without a doubt. That’s what I’ve been telling people in interviews that there just going to be shocked, it’s so amazing and I’m so excited. Like, unbiased, besides the fact that its mine, its incredible and I can’t wait to share it with everybody.
Is there a lot of pressure considering you come from a very successful family?
Diggy Simmons: People ask that, but not really, not at all I just really do me and I’m just an independent person and I’m my own individual. So not really.

Do you have any plans to go into acting?
Diggy Simmons: That can happen, I’ve always been interested in that and I use to do a little bit of acting.
What’s the best advice someone has given you before you started in the music industry?
Diggy Simmons: Something that I always remembered even now is that just do you because sometimes what people say can get under your skin and you can’t let it.

Diggy Simmons: Their just proud and support what I do and their happy for me.
