Daveed Diggs

As a kid, you don't have a ton of spaces where you are honored, where what you think is honored and what you say is revered.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I think people understand I'm not actually the real Thomas Jefferson.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

If you do enough rap shows, you get a pretty good sense of an audience. You start to develop this sense of what a feeling of a room or a group is.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

The tricky thing about fast raps is not really the delivery of them; it's the writing of them, with consonants close enough together that you don't trip up over them.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

The fact that rap has a strict meter and stays to a click means that you have to make your thoughts concise.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

To be rapping in a musical on Broadway is just - that sentence doesn't make any sense in my brain.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

The fact that I got to do the 'Hamilton' BET Cypher is a totally crazy thing because I've watched the BET Cyphers since it started. I've seen every one. I study them. Because I'm a rapper. It's what you do.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

At some point, I'll do more McDonald's commercials if I have to.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I didn't aspire to be on Broadway.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

To walk into a casting room full of people who look like you is a crazy thing. What is the thing that necessitates all of us having the exact same shade of skin and having the same hair? What about this deodorant commercial needs that?

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Neither of my parents live in Oakland anymore. They both got priced out.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I'm aware that not everybody gets that feeling of ease walking through the world that I have.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I make the energy to go out. You can't let the Broadway schedule run you.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

There's no reason for somebody who's good at writing rap to be good at freestyling. They're different parts of your brain. You can develop both skills. I'm a much better writer.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

As a kid, I was very shy.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I think rappers spend a lot of time trying to figure out what is new. 'How can I say this in a way that no one has ever said it before?'

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Recording vocals has the same kind of physical demands as you experience a lot in theater work.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

It wasn't until I got out in the world and started worked professionally when I realized that the people I admired were the ones who had taken the little snippets of what they learned that worked for them - and strung them together in their own technique.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I sort of have this feeling about change in general. We can make baby steps on a macro level. We can try to shift policy, voting and changing who's in office. But we can make huge, sweeping changes on a personal level and in your immediate circle, or just the people around you.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Oftentimes, it feels like we spend so much of our life waiting to make art, waiting for somebody to let us do something. You don't really have to do that. You can make it all the time. And 99 percent of the time, it's not going to be a big deal on a global scale. But 100 percent of the time, it's going to make you feel amazing.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

There's this thing about authenticity when you rap, right? Whether or not it's real, it has to feel real.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I can jump really high, yeah. I'm proud of that. I'll take it.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Learning how to get a point across is pretty useful in any situation.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

My mom is a white Jewish lady, and my dad is black. The cultures never seemed separate - I had a lot of mixed friends. When I was young, I identified with being Jewish, but I embraced my dad's side, too.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I liked being on stage because it gave me a reason to be around people. The other great thing about acting is it allows you to imagine circumstances different from your own. I was a poor Bay Area kid getting to pretend to be a Russian aristocrat.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

History is about who tells it.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

That's the great thing about how 'SVU' works. They work with so many Broadway actors, they are very used to getting us out in time for the show.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I was so stressed, man. When I was 17, I was so worried about what the hell was going to happen.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I get excited to create things that don't exist in the same world as 'Hamilton' because that world is really well done and doesn't need me to inform it anymore.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

It's funny because as a rapper, there is - and this is something that Clipping challenges all the time - there is this idea about authenticity as a rapper, in the fact that you rap things that are yours. That's not what doing a play is. You're interpreting somebody else's words.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Writing rap songs is about flow, about one word blending seamlessly into the next and creating a thing that is possible to perform in a way that feels natural.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I think this idea of a big break is a lie.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Being multiracial has allowed me to feel comfortable walking in all different circles.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Daveed Diggs is a very nervous person.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I have this thing. I can rap really fast. I can rap really, really fast. It's a thing I'm good at and I've trained myself to do; it's a thing I do in the Bay Area.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

The reason you write something that is exciting and visceral is to force people to hear what you have to say, especially if you're in any kind of marginalized community where people don't want to listen. You have to come up with tricks to make them listen.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I think it's important that your work is in conversation with artists in your community.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

My parents are not together, but they were both always around.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I felt so loved and taken care of, and that's a huge part of the reason I'm able to do what I do.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Writing is writing. It is all about telling stories, and I've been doing that for so long, in all realms, that it all feels like the same thing to me anyway.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

As more doors open for me, I try to always bring people who I know through.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

I've been sort of gentrification-obsessed. Right before I left Oakland in 2012, I was feeling it. Now I go back sporadically, and the change is drastic.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

That's the great thing about being a teenager. You think you're a genius.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

Clipping is a very specific, concept-y thing. We have all these rules: we don't sample drums. We create all our own sounds. I don't speak in the first person. We come from a background of experimental music like John Cage... Philip Glass.

Daveed Diggs


Free Status Quote By - Daveed Diggs

College was the first time I felt I really had to choose who my friends were.
