"Queens Raised and Brooklyn Bred" Darnell "Izzo Flii" Howerton is a wave of new energy sweeping through the NY music scene . Described as a raw talent with an inventive mind to pull from. His laid back nature and cool sense of humor mixed with a love for the creative and off beat belie a combination of edgy lyricism and consuming mic presence. Hungry to establish his name he released DIIG D33P in Fall of 2009 believing good music would speak for itself. Sure enough the music spoke sparking multiple interviews, features and mixtape appearances. Highlights of which included: a co-sign from the legendary DJ Scratch , performances opening for the likes of Jae Millz and Fred Da Godson and placements on Wu-Tang Management's internationally distributed Stainless Series mixtapes. On Feb 3 , 2011 Izzo released Diig Deep vol.2 : The Abdomen , with word being that he had far exceeded its predecessor and upped his own caliber as an artist. Thus, the story begins once more as he welcomes one and all to Diig Deep season..."
