DIGGY TAKES FLIGHT WITH âUNEXPECTED ARRIVAL;â

RISING MCâS ALBUM FEATURES COLLABORATIONS WITH JADAKISS, JEREMIH AND TANK;

âUNEXPECTED ARRIVALâ AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW;




Atlantic Recording artist Diggyâs debut album, âUNEXPECTED ARRIVAL,â is now available in stores and online. The 12-track compilation features production from DâMile, Da Internz, Pop & Oak, Happy Perez and more, while collaborations include the likes of Jadakiss (â88â,) Tank (âSpecial Occasionâ,) and Jeremih (âDo 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 NYCâs Highline Ballroom, and continued the festivities Tuesday with a special 30-minute performance on BETâs 106 & Park. The young fashion icon will also take the stage alongside Jeremih, to perform âDo It Like You,â at BETâs annual âRip The Runwayâ today. Last month, Diggy took home the award for âOutstanding New Artistâ at the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards.

âUNEXPECTED ARRIVALâ has become a favorite amongst press and fans alike, with Rap-Up.com proclaiming âthe album itself proved a versatility from the son of hip-hop royalty,â while MTV.com praised Diggy, saying âthe 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 âJetsetters,â last week, Diggy launched âCountdown 2 Diggy,â a 7-part webisode series on The Warner Sound chronicling the young MCâs latest headlining, âLife Of The Jetsetter Tour,â as well the days leading up to the release of âUNEXPECTED ARRIVAL.â Watch âCountdown 2 Diggy,â here: http://www.youtube.com/thewarnersound.

All of this has led to Diggyâs undeniable online presence, with over 1 million followers on Twitter and over 1 million likes on Facebook. Additionally, Diggyâs YouTube channel, found at www.youtube.com/diggysimmons, has over 13 million views, with the video for his single âDo It Like You (feat. Jeremih),â having been viewed over 3.6 million times.
