Diggy Simmons Hints at Willow Smith Collaboration
“I’ve just met Jaden Smith a few weeks ago. He is a real cool kid, very talented. And Willow, you might see something from us coming out,” Simmons told AllHipHop. “There are some young artists on the come up at Def Jam doing their thing. And it’s not like we’re all good enough for our age. I feel that all of us that are making a name for ourselves are as good as anybody; we can hold our own.”
Willow, the nine-year-old daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, burst onto the music scene earlier this month after her debut single ‘Whip My Hair‘ hit the ‘Net. Shortly after, Jay-Z confirmed that he had signed Willow to his Roc Nation imprint, branding her ‘a star’ and comparing her to the late Michael Jackson.
Diggy has been on the scene since 2009, when he dropped his breakout mixtape ‘The First Flight.’ After Atlantic Records caught wind of the young emcee’s talents, Diggy signed with the imprint, following up his debut collection of tracks with his second mixtape ‘Airborne,’ which dropped earlier this month.
