Queens’ native son, Daniel “Diggy” Simmons, the son of Rev. Run of Run DMC and nephew to Russell Simmons, considered by many to be Hip-Hop Royalty, has made a name for himself as a rapper and performer. He spent many of his younger years as the charming middle son on MTV’s “Run’s House.” With the same charm and bravado, Diggy the rapper is emerging as a super talent in the hip-hop community where he is often referred to as “the next hottest thing.”
Diggy’s hits like “Flow Stoopid,” a freestyle track over Nas’ “Made You Look,” received instant co-signs from rap heavy-hitters ranging from Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West to Common, Quest Love, and Talib Kweli. “Flow Stoopid” became an instant viral sensation and marked the first time Diggy was noticed as a rapper in his own right. Diggy received the ultimate co-sign in April 2011, when XXL Magazine featured him in their “Freshman Class” issue, an issue dedicated solely to the stand out artists who have made a strong impact on the hip-hop community and who have the potential to transform their media buzz into a concrete placement in the hip-hop world. Expect more from this young talent for years to come. Today, check out Diggy online at http://www.diggyworld.com.
Muve First Artist Future has collaborated with Muve Music to launch his new album “Pluto.” Future has agreed to offer an exclusive, first release of his new song “Fishscale” and a Muve Sessions track by track commentary on his new album “Pluto.” Look for Future’s exclusive releases from his debut album “Pluto” on Muve Music April 17, 2012.
Navyvadius Cash, a.k.a Future, is ready to dominate the charts as the 25 year-old Atlanta native’s classic mixtapes have put the streets and clubs in his clutches with his first single “Tony Montana” featuring Drake. With his newly signed record deal courtesy of Epic Records and his connection to Atlanta’s famed Dungeon Family, Future’s career is finally off the launching pad. His first single’s bubbling success, “Tony Montana,” featuring Drake shows Future’s talent to mix his own signature melodic flow, the hypnotic track, with an unforgettable chorus and the international superstar Drake.
Future’s fame as a songwriter finally broke through to the mainstream when he penned most of YC’s braggadocios BET Hip-Hop Award nominated blockbuster “Racks” featuring Future. The chorus, “I got racks on racks on racks…” became an instant smash in the clubs, on the radio and was adored by everyone from fans to major artists such as Lil Wayne. The Atlanta hip-hop star follows up with his bass-thumping second single “Magic” remix featuring T.I., which is already taking shape as the anthem of 2012. Future’s signature melodic flow and infectious chorus caught the attention of platinum selling fellow Atlanta rapper, T.I., who offered his vocals as a guest feature on the track. Future has solidified himself as a press favorite for “Breakout Artist for 2012.” Covering the December 2011/January 2012 issue, The Fader states, “As long as tracks like Future’s Tony Montana are successful on a wide scale, I think we can rest comfortably knowing hip hop is alive and well.” Future’s momentum continues as he sits atop the cover of XXL Magazine’s most anticipated issue of the year, “Freshmen Class,” which boasts top hip-hop recording artists deemed to be the breakout stars of the year.
Muve Headliner Artist David Guetta has partnered with Muve Music in April to release two full Muve Sessions albums with track by track commentary from his “Nothing But the Beat” and “Nothing But The Beat Electronic album.” His exclusive commentary on these albums will be released only to Muve Music subscribers starting April 10, 2012. Guetta also created a hot new mix exclusively for Muve Music subscribers, “NBTB – Muve To The Beat.” This continuous mix of four tracks is pulled from Guetta’s favorite picks: “Paris,” “Without You,” “Lunar” and “Sunshine.” From tripped-out techno to drum-driven dub-step experiments to raw and riotous dirty house, the pure club driven element of “Nothing But The Beat” is a taste of Guetta as a DJ; his true passion and identity. Many may have discovered him through his hits which take the European Dance beats and fuse them with songs and stars, but those who breathe dance culture know he has been at the heart of the club scene for two decades; and his influence there is only getting stronger. His set at Ultra Music Festival showed why he was voted the No1 DJ on the planet right now.
Guetta has taken EDM to new heights, crossing boundaries that have helped the scene soar. As an electronic artist, he has won legions of fans in the clubs and shared Dance music world-wide like no-one before. His mission was for this music to reach as many people as possible. In addition to selling more than 5 million albums worldwide, Guetta has produced tracks for some of the biggest artists on the planet including the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling.” Guetta recently announced that his next U.S. single will be “Titanium” featuring Sia. “Titanium” is already a #1 song in the UK and was one of the biggest records during his UMF set. It follows Guetta’s latest radio hits, the #1 single “Without You” featuring Usher and current chart topper “Turn Me On” featuring Nicki Minaj. Along with his two Grammys, Guetta was named the #1 DJ in the world this past October in the influential DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll, a spot that was previously held for four years by Armin Van Buurin. His movie/documentary which tells his story, also titled “Nothing But The Beat”, was recently released.
