Remember Diggy? I met him in New York last September. At the time I wrote,
"He's 14 years old, rich, famous and obsessed with fashion. The son of Rev Run from Run DMC and star of MTV reality show Run's House, Diggy has his own blog where he posts daily about his favourites in fashion, architecture and style. He's even coming out with his own clothing label (rumoured to be called Space Age) in the near future. I ran into Diggy sitting in the front row at menswear show Duckie Brown this afternoon. Standing at about 5'5" and looking fresh in a preppy Kanye West/Pharrell Williams inspired outfit (dark glasses, cardigan, shirt, bow tie, raw denim jeans, white Chucks and of course Louis Vuitton monogrammed cellphone wallet), Diggy was the quintessential child star. Poised, approachable, professional and more than happy to have his photo taken. The kid could throw out a toothy grin like the best of the supermodels backstage. The only difference - those supermodels never seem to have glistening (and I mean glistening) silver braces adorning their pearly whites."
Diggy's growing up. Just turned 15, he's released his first mix tape and single (a remix of Nas' song Made You Look), and he's about to drop his own sneaker line too, named Chivalrous Culture.
But wait, there's more.
Check him out in the video above. He holds his own in a a room full of fans, interviews well, looks good in Double D and spits a tight freestyle. He's like the new Kanye, only 20 years younger.
Watch this space.
I LIKE YOU!
