[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After Saigon gave Tru-Life the title earlier this week, Chet Haze now crowns Saigon SOHH Underrated.]
I think Saigon is really underrated. I think when it comes to lyrics, he's one of the most talented cats in the game. Just listen to what he says in his music. He really keeps it real and he's just straight up hip-hop. He's so real with his music. He's sort of got that old school vibe to him.
He's not the type of dude to change who he is to become mainstream and successful. That's why I respect him so much as an artist.
The first time I noticed him was from [HBO television series] Entourage. After I saw [him], I started delving into his music. He's just amazing. I know he put out mixtapes. But I also don't think that he's going to be very underrated for long because I think he's really about to be blowing up crazy.
And you know what? I think Yelawolf is absolutely insane as well. I really like Yelawolf too. I think Yela is really about to blow up. I am so excited for him right now.
Although currently in school and acting in plays, Chet Haze has taken his passion of hip-hop to the next level by launching a music career. Currently unsigned, Chet has been recently releasing new freestyles, a mixtape called Get Hazed and keeping fans afloat on social networks. Chet is also the son of Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks.
