Joell Ortiz & Diggy Simmons to Headline Famous Factory Show

The Famous Factory and Sickamore, in association with XXL magazine, are proud to present the latest installment of The Famous Factory Show next Friday (September 24) in Brooklyn, New York, featuring Joell Ortiz and Diggy Simmons.

The Brooklyn native Ortiz will be performing in front of a live audience fresh off the release of his EP, Farewell Summer. Diggy, too, recently dropped a project, Airborne, which was the young spitter’s second mixtape. Rugz D. Bewler, Che Grand, Smokess and Slim E. will also hit the stage during the event, which will be held at the Public Assembly in Williamsburg.

The Famous Factory Show provides the Internet’s most dedicated fans an opportunity to see the artists to which they’ve given the heaviest online buzz. In addition to assembling those in-demand artists from all across the U.S., The Famous Factory Show is also meant to open doors for younger audiences, who often don’t get the chance to see their favorite artists perform inside 21-and-older venues.

“I wanted to create an experience for teenagers to experience the artists they helped build on the blogs,” says show founder Sickamore. “Arcades are gone, as well as skate [rinks]. The Factory is that new place for them to get together.”

The last Famous Factory show saw Curren$y performing Pilot Talk, and also had appearances by Dom Kennedy, Laws, Big K.R.I.T. and more.

The show kicks off at 7 PM and tickets are $20. This performance is open to fans ages 16 and older. Stay tuned to as we will be hosting ticket giveaways throughout the week. You can purchase tickets here. —Adam Fleischer

    Staff out cashing them checks? There’s a lotta heat out there…

    “Then people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t fucking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t fuck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you.”-Kid Cudi, Complex Mag interview

      What up $yk, Cudi really did go in on wale? And where did here the comment by julez on the kanye diss?

        “Cudi really did go in on wale”

        ^ yep. Complex mag homie. Wale’s reply…

        “niggas lettin that liquid cocaine get to them…..lets go then”

        ^ LoL

        And Juelz is mad ’cause he was trying to get a ‘Ye beat. Which also takes me back to that Cudi statement up there. But Juelz ain’t elaborating though. Kanye will probably double the price, make it unreachable for Santana.

        Prodigy coming home soon means there will be darts thrown at a lot of rapper dudes. And P knows how to work the ‘net grind, Fif is gonna hold him down.

      If you believe that, you’re an idiot… that kid 15 and already spittin better flows than 70% of the mainstream game and already has a wider vocabulary than people like 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and Office Ricky.

      ANYONE that can’t give a 15 year old Diggy props is just hating, period.
