J Diggs Tickets
J-Diggs: One of the West Coast’s best rappers
J-Diggs is one of the most important rappers to come out of the West Coast hip-hop scene, even if he never achieved the notoriety of other rappers like Too Short and Ice Cube. With a distinctive Bay Area feel to his music and lyrics, it’s not your average hip-hop, either. His live shows are always energetic and you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to buy or sell J-Diggs tickets on StubHub if he’s passing through your city.
Protégé of the legendary Mac Dre
Growing up in California, he was inspired by other hip-hop artists such as Grandmaster Flash and Too Short to start making music himself and became close friends with the legendary Mac Dre, who also became J-Digg’s mentor and helped him to become a key player in the West Coast music scene. At the age of 19, though, he got into trouble with the law and was sentenced to 10 years in prison along with his friends and fellow rappers Mac Dre and Kilo Curt. This didn’t stop him from making music, though. He became a prolific rapper during his incarceration, known both inside and out of prison as a great musician and lyricist. After their release, they picked up where they left off, with J-Diggs helping Mac Dre to establish the influential music label Thizz Entertainment, which he later became co-CEO of after Mac Dre’s death in 2004. His first solo album—"Both Sides of the Gate"—came out in 2003, and he went on to put out a deluge of well-received music, which is best seen live in concert with J-Diggs tickets.
J-Diggs: One of the legends of hyphy
J-Diggs is well-known as one of the most prolific artists of the hyphy genre of hip-hop, a term that originated from the Oakland slang for hyperactive. The music originated in the Bay Area and gives J-Diggs’ music a more unique flavour when compared to more typical hip-hop. Like other hyphy rappers, his lyrics often focus on fast cars, partying and women, and the music is popular with "sideshows", the impromptu street parties that feature fast cars and partying. Although it might seem like a niche genre, hyphy has had a major influence on many musicians. Drake, for example, released the heavily-hyphy-inspired track "The Motto" in 2011 that went on to be a huge success—showing the lasting impact of pioneers such as J-Diggs. He’s not just known in the musical realm, either. Since his release from prison, J-Diggs has gone on to star in many TV shows, such as American Gangster in 2009, which was a hit for the Black Entertainment Television network.
