"O.N.E. the Duo — the mother-daughter team of Tekitha and Prana Supreme Diggs — have hip-hop roots but record acoustic music with a country and Americana bent.
Back in 2014, Tekitha would host electrifying jam sessions where she’d invite musicians, poets, rappers and visual artists to her home for a night of creativity and collaboration.

One evening after the mother and daughter wowed guests with some freestyling, the younger performer had a thought: “‘What if we sang and wrote our own songs together?’” Diggs recalls asking her mother.
