With a strong family andteam base and even stronger work ethic, Digmata eventually linked up with Quincy (Big Heff)Taylor. That connection led to touring over 100 cities in a year and getting love from coast tocoast, putting together shows with Stalley, Ray Jr, Bone Thugs and making the crowds move with his songs and high energy performances.
