Young Sir - Rollin (Music Video)

Lyrically known as "Young Sir", Taj Jamal Diggs was born June 1990, in Baltimore, MD but his family eventually relocated to the DMV. Young Sir graduated from high school in 2008 and is presently a college student with a focus in journalism. Since childhood, Young Sir has been commanded on his ability to write. From as early age he has had a desire to express himself and that his voice be heard.

Raised in an environment where respectfulness and good manners were strongly encouraged, he was certain to address adults as "Sir" or "Ma'am". Because this was a rare practice amongst his peers, it earned him the moniker "Young Sir".

The music gene did not bypass Young Sir who was introduced to most, if not all, musical genes by his grandmother, a music teacher/choir director/pianist/harpist. Consequently, Young Sir developed a keen ear for music. He taught himself to play the piano at only 6 years old.

Entering DuVal High School in 2004, Young Sir became and remained throughout his high school tenure, a member of the school's band and marching band where he perfected the drums. "We thought how perfect his choice of instrument," says Young Sir's mother, "since it was noted early on that he marches to the beat of his own drum." It was through the band that he acquired the "bug" to perform for large audiences, performing at games, city concerts and local parades.

Young Sir joined a music production club in high school that taught the fundamentals of all aspects of the music industry including performing. A group of lyricists emerged in the club and were dubbed "Da Beat Club" of which Young Sir was an acclaimed artist. It was through "Da Beat Club" that Young Sir received local recognition and exposure on radio, cds, and tours.

In 2007, Tru Identity, a newly formed go-go band comprised of 7 young and talented musicians tapped Young Sir to infuse a hip hop flavor to their go-go sound. Then in 2008, with a growing fan base and reputation Young Sir decided to begin his solo quest as a hip hop artist. He is noted for his incredible freestyle ability, creative lyricism, and edgy flair. His talent and drive has led him to perform all throughout the DMV. Look for big things to come from Young S.
