[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After Killer Mike gave Scarface the title earlier this week, XV crowns Tech N9ne SOHH Underrated.]
Who is the most underrated rapper in the game? Hhmm. There are actually a lot of artists out there that I feel [should be] considered the most underrated. Like, it used to be B.o.B. and then he hit it off with the smash [hits] and it was like, "There we go. That's it." So probably outside of B.o.B., I would have to say, probably Tech N9ne. That's hard. But I'd name Tech N9ne.
Tech N9ne out of Kansas City. He's definitely one of the most underrated, hardest working and breakthrough artists. He's one of those artists that have never really came out to the public. He just blew [on the underground scene]. So I would have to say Tech N9ne.
You know, there's someone else as well. Freeway. That's another artist who kind of had a little shine but he never [achieved commercial fame]. Like now, I feel Freeway could be around, like a Rick Ross. His flow patterns are insane.
XV is a burgeoning rapper/singer/songwriter from Wichita, Kansas. His rap alias represents the age when he first started creating music. He recently signed a record deal with Warner Bros. Records. His latest project, The Kid With The Green Backpack, is slated for a 2011 release.
