[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After Yelawolf gave Devin the Dude the title earlier this week, Paul Wall crowns Z-Ro as SOHH Underrated.]
I think the most underrated rapper would be my boy Z-Ro. I was just about to say Bun B as well. I would have to put Bun B as my number two choice but Z-Ro in my opinion is the most underrated.
Z-Ro's just so talented man. I think he's underrated because he kind of sticks to himself. He goes to his own beat. He don't really f*ck with a lot of other people. Sometimes all he f*cks with is fam.
I don't know why he hasn't achieved that platinum success but out of all of the albums he's put out, he's sold over a million records. So he definitely has had success but on a mainstream level [but] on a national level, it hasn't really been like that. On the underground, he's a legend.
Z-Ro is one of my favorite artists to ever touch the mic. He's also a good friend of mine, a close homeboy. I always [root] for him because he deserves it. I just feel like he's so talented.
Paul Wall is a rapper known for his affiliation with Swishahouse Records and starting his career alongside friend/rapper Chamillionaire. Outside of music, Wall owns a successful jewelry business, Grills By Paul Wall.
