Digga D Early Life, Career, Short Bio
Digga D whose real name is Rhys Herbert but professionally as Digga D, is a British rapper and songwriter. He gained recognition as part of the UK Drill collective 1011, which was later renamed to CGM. He is considered to be one of the pioneers of the UK drill scene. Some of his music videos have garnered attention among law enforcement, resulting in a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) taken against the collective, and he has been in and out of prison during the singles and videos’ releases. Digga D was sent to prison three times before the age of 20. He has had five singles that have placed in the UK Singles Chart; his mixtape albums, Double Tap Diaries and Made in the Pyrex, reached No. 11 and 3 on the UK Albums Chart.
Rhys Herbert was born on 29 June 2000 in West London. At age 12, he began writing music. He listened to Jamaican reggae and dancehall. In year eight, he was arrested after a stop and search revealed possession of cannabis, and was consequently kicked out of school.
2015–2017: Formation of 1011 / GGM
In 2015, he formed the drill group 1011 along with his friends in a local youth club in Ladbroke Grove. The group was named after the W10 and W11 postal codes, and includes members Herbert, Yonas Girma, Micah Bedeau (Horrid1), Isaac Marshall, and Jordan Bedeau. They released several singles in 2016, including “Kill Confirmed”, “Play for the Pagans”, and “No Hook”.
On 9 November 2017, Digga D and members of 1011 were arrested in a stop and search in which they were carrying machetes and baseball bats. 1011 claimed they were making a drill music video, but police stated they were planning to attack a rival gang, 12 World. Digga and 1011 were convicted of conspiracy to commit violent disorder, sentenced to a year in jail, and given a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) in 2018. Four of the group’s music videos prior to the CBO were taken down. However, they were noted to have already amassed over ten million combined views, and would soon be uploaded by fans to their channels, where they continued to get more views. The group rebranded as CGM, an acronym for Cherish God More.
2017–2019: Double Tap Diaries
He did a freestyle for Mixtape Madness’s Next Up? program which was released in 30 November 2017. The freestyle was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry on 18 October 2019, making it the first Mixtape Madness freestyle with a certification. Rap critic Joseph JP Patterson described the release of the freestyle as having “stopped everyone in their tracks. Heads in the music industry began to turn, and they quickly found themselves in “next to blow” conversations.” Ethan Herlock of The Face wrote that the freestyle “demonstrated Digga D’s distinctive flow and chest-puffing energy, heralding him as a standout MC in the increasingly crowded UK drill scene”.
He released post-CBO-reviewed singles including “No Porkies”, and “Who?”, and had a Mixtape Madness Mad About Bars session with Kenny Allstar. On 17 May 2019, his debut mixtape, Double Tap Diaries was released. The album included the single “No Diet” which peaked No. 20 in the UK Singles Chart. Days after the mixtape release, he confirmed he was still in jail.
