[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to name who they feel is the most underrated. After Pusha T gave Bun B the title last week, today, "Love the Way You Lie" producer Alex Da Kid crowns Pusha T SOHH Underrated.]
Thinking about who is the most underrated rapper in hip-hop, that's a tough question. In terms of being an emcee, I really feel like Pusha T is the most underrated. I've always loved The Clipse and I have always been a fan of Pusha T as well.
I love all of their work they have put out together, going back to [their 2002 debut album] Lord Willin'. So when you look at it, Pusha T might not necessarily be underrated on the hip-hop scene. But [commercially], I feel Pusha T and even Malice, together, they both seem like they [have extraordinary potential]. I feel like they both could be even bigger than they are right now.
The quality of their music is amazing to me. It's kind of hard not to notice them. So I don't feel like they're underrated by their peers, but I think, commercially, they could be a little bit bigger. I really love Pusha T and Malice as well.
In terms of producers being underrated as well, I've got to say DJ Khalil. He's not too underrated anymore, but he's also someone I find amazing. I just heard a beat CD of his the other day and he's out there. He's amazing. I love his stuff. He was on Eminem's [Recovery] album and he has a lot of big things coming up. He's also someone who is going to get the shine he deserves.
Alex Da Kid is a producer known for working with artists like B.o.B. and is the hitmaker behind Eminem's Recovery smash, "I Love The Way You Lie."
