[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After R&B singer Olivia gave Mos Def the title earlier this week, fellow crooner Kevin Cossom now crowns Ace Hood as SOHH Underrated.]
Somebody in the Miami area that I would say is underrated and really getting picked up now is my n*gga Ace Hood. He's definitely coming into his zone and he's already dropped a few mixtapes. He's got this joint called "Hustle Hard" out now.
At first, out in Los Angeles a lot of people didn't know about it yet but that sh*t's been bumping out here in Miami. Now he's got Lil Wayne and Rick Ross hopped on the remix. I feel like now people are going to really start paying attention to him now. Heavy.
His early days with DJ Khaled is when I first met up with him and his music. I did "Cash Flow" for him on his first album [Gutta in 2008]. That's kind of where our whole relationship started. So I watched his grind and how people received him. I've also [taken] notice of how people are seeing him now since he's really starting to get respect from his peers.
Ace has been really grinding and putting out this music these past few years. You can hear it on all these mixtapes. I think he's finally starting to get the respect that he deserves and you can keep expecting big things from him.
Kevin Cossom is an R&B newcomer who has worked with a variety of rap stars including Beanie Sigel, Rick Ross, Chamillionaire, Trey Songz and Rocko but has also made a name for himself behind the scenes as a songwriter for Justin Bieber and Joe Jonas.
