Hip-hop is not a simple cultural movement. Born in the social mutiny of the working-class neighborhoods, it has its roots in funk, soul and disco and has now become the most listened to genre in the United States. It is also a genre in constant evolution: every day, new rappers and new styles appear and trends follow one another like episodes of a series. So quickly that it is difficult to be up to date on everything that is happening on the other side of the Atlantic.
That's why at Diggers Factory, we aim to live on American time to bring you the freshest projects and let you enjoy them!

If you're interested in hip-hop from the US, then you've probably heard of Boston's Cousin Stizz. Stephen Goss, known by his nickname Cousin, is an American rapper and songwriter from Dorchester, Massachusetts, and is represented by RCA Records.
Cousin's dynamic is truly ingenious– he is dedicated to good sound without trying to prove anything. He doesn’t try to make big musical splits, Cousin is far from all that, at least for now ! He has devoted himself to what he knows best.
Almost every song on Suffolk County has a half-sung, incredibly catchy hook. Like "Shoutout," none of them are big or overproduced. Either way, they are always memorable. "Fresh Prince" is the best example of Cousin Stizz's ability to slyly etch words into your brain. He raps in a slow, deliberate cadence for the first two and a half minutes of the song, repeating phrases but not changing his tone or flow to distinguish the hook of the verse.
The album is also available in limited edition vinyl record with an original t-shirt.
