Wind down with Diggis’ smooth hip-hop sequel, “Straight Chillin, pt. 2 (Be About the Balance)” out now.
Produced by ‘90s boom-bap producer Phoniks, the second part to “Straight Chillin’” is a smooth-sailing track with uplifting lyrics. Diggis is a promotor of positive hip-hop, and his latest anthem makes no change. With a natural flow and self-assured lyrics, the track’s infused with elements of soul, boom-bap and old school. Speaking on the track’s meaning, Diggis explains, “The song is a self-reminder, a symbol of growth, and a new chapter in the journey of self-improvement and discovery.”
The release follows “Straight Chillin’”, from his debut album, ‘Small Town Stories’. Exactly a decade on, it felt like the right time for the artist to put out the track’s follow-up. Following on from the original concept of relaxing in a rainforest, he delves into balance, responsibility, growth and having a healthy mindset.
An independent emcee, Diggis lives and breathes hip hop. He’s performed around Australia and New York, supporting a range of international musicians along the way. Drawing inspiration from his surroundings and background in his hometown Kuranda, Queensland, he’s continuing to build out his discography with fresh material to release throughout 2023.
