The seed of hip-hop royalty has finally grown as his own entity. Diggy Simmons dropped off Unexpected Arrival six years ago, and it appears he took that time to tighten up his lyrical skills. Sounding more mature and refined than even, Diggy comes through with Lighten Up.
The eight-track project brushes on spirituality and sophistication, but still allows Diggy to flow freely with more secular themes. "There are many themes that I explore in the album," wrote the young rapper on Twitter. "The most prominent one being “journey”. Our emotional connection to our journey, moving past trauma’s in our journey, how we learn from our journey, and the practice of championing ourselves, no matter where we are in our journey." Stream Lighten Up now on Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music.
