<strong><u>DIGGY TAKES FLIGHT WITH â€œUNEXPECTED ARRIVAL;â€
RISING MCâ€™S ALBUM FEATURES COLLABORATIONS WITH JADAKISS, JEREMIH AND TANK;
â€œUNEXPECTED ARRIVALâ€ AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW;</u>
Atlantic Recording artist Diggyâ€™s debut album, â€œUNEXPECTED ARRIVAL,â€ is now available in stores and online. The 12-track compilation features production from Dâ€™Mile, Da Internz, Pop & Oak, Happy Perez and more, while collaborations include the likes of Jadakiss (â€œ88â€,) Tank (â€œSpecial Occasionâ€,) and Jeremih (â€œDo It Like Youâ€.) The rising rap phenom started the celebration of the release of his debut opus on Monday, with a sold-out album release show at NYCâ€™s Highline Ballroom, and continued the festivities Tuesday with a special 30-minute performance on BETâ€™s <u>106 & Park</u>. The young fashion icon will also take the stage alongside Jeremih, to perform â€œDo It Like You,â€ at BETâ€™s annual â€œRip The Runwayâ€ today. Last month, Diggy took home the award for â€œOutstanding New Artistâ€ at the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards.
â€œUNEXPECTED ARRIVALâ€ has become a favorite amongst press and fans alike, with <u>Rap-Up.com</u> proclaiming â€œthe album itself proved a versatility from the son of hip-hop royalty,â€ while <u>MTV.com</u> praised Diggy, saying â€œthe teenage rapper unveils his major-label debut, filled with feel-good tracks that prove he can hold his own against more seasoned MCs.â€
Always one to stay connected with his loyal fans, also known as â€œJetsetters,â€ last week, Diggy launched â€œCountdown 2 Diggy,â€ a 7-part webisode series on The Warner Sound chronicling the young MCâ€™s latest headlining, â€œLife Of The Jetsetter Tour,â€ as well the days leading up to the release of â€œUNEXPECTED ARRIVAL.â€ Watch â€œCountdown 2 Diggy,â€ here: <a href = 'http://www.youtube.com/thewarnersound'>http://www.youtube.com/thewarnersound</a>.
