Diggy Simmons disappeared for a few years before resurfacing with a remix to Key!'s "Dig It" earlier this year. Then, Simmons released an original track called "It Is What It Is," which features a chorus laden instrumental laced with violins but no drums. Now, the young rapper is back with a follow-up single that satiates that hip-hop community's need for some percussion.
"Anchors" finds Diggy introspectively rapping about his surroundings. His wordplay is miles ahead of the music he was dropping years ago, and Diggy's delivery finally catches up with his confidence. The "Anchors" instrumental includes a high pitch female vocal that creates a haunting sway behind a gorgeous piano riff and a cameo of violin chords. Diggy sticks to spitting spirituality conscious lyrics, but does it without sounding preachy or trite.
If you got a problem don't blame me
Take it up with God, but that's dangerous
They see me shining so they tend to get anxious
But never shoot your shot without aiming
Even if you had the drop on me maybe
I ain't leave the house without angels
