No. 15: Diggy Simmons

Birthdate: March 21, 1995 (age 15)

Why He's Hot: Aside from being the pretty boy, fashion-forward son of Run DMC's Reverend Run, Diggy Simmons is garnering attention for his formidable rapping skills. After releasing a mixtape titled "The First Flight" in December 2009, and freestyling over Drake's "Over" and Nas' "Made You Look," Diggy got signed to Atlantic Records in early 2010. He recently released his follow-up mixtape, "Airborne," and -- taking cue from his older sisters -- launched his own sneaker line, "Chivalrous Culture." Diggy's 230,000 (and counting) Twitter followers are counting the days until the release of his debut album, which he is currently recording.
