Last year, DigDat revealed his debut album Ei8ht Mile, a well-received offering that saw 13 cuts with additional appearances from Tee Grizzley, D-Block Europe, Aitch, Headie One, K-Trap, Snap Capone, and more. Now, the South London star is said to be putting the finishing touches on an official follow-up, having already treated fans to the hard-hitting tracks “VV” and “Assassin Creed.” Late last month, he added to that with “How High,” a drill number courtesy of Scratcha that’s perfect for DigDat’s street-heavy subject matter:
“Had a spliff on my ear, but I dropped that, lost that, now I’m pissed, doing up a blem, got a big G locked in D-Block, see him and rise it and beat on them, she suck on my dick, then make sure you throat man, Amiris red like that post man, I’m still trying to send this postal, free S1, tell him, ‘Get with the program’/”
“How High” also sees a self-directed visual that shows DigDat living a life of luxury. He can be spotted riding a Bentley through London’s streets, hanging out a what’s presumed to be his high-end residence, and flossing jewelry, supercars, and more at a Shell gas station — a notable location for some of British rap’s greatest moments.
Simply put, it’s been a hard journey to success for DigDat. At 13, he found himself in prison for an unknown offense, remaining incarcerated for five years before his release. He was eventually “found” by his ex-manager Bouncer, a longtime member of Krept & Konan’s Play Dirty collective. He later landed on the UK charts via his breakout single “Air Force,” which saw a subsequent remix alongside Krept & Konan and K-Trap — the rest, shall we say, is UK history.
