[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After Malice gave Big L the title earlier this week, rap veteran Kool G Rap names himself as SOHH Underrated.]
The most underrated? Wow. I'm a pretty modest and humble dude and in all honesty, nobody really fits that title more than G Rap. And the reason that I say that is because of the acknowledgment from Tupac, because of the acknowledgement from Jay-Z, Nas, Big Pun.
Think about it. What artist that you consider great didn't ever mention G Rap's name? You know what I'm saying? Who? Eminem. He's shouted out G Rap and others as well. He made that acknowledgement. I'm just saying that the proof is in the pudding.
I can't sit here and deny the fact, even if it points to me, that I've been mentioned by so many people considered great or the greatest. I can't look past that. I'm definitely glad to be the most underrated artist. For me to be acknowledged like that, in that capacity, all the way up until today, says a lot to me.
Kool G Rap is a renowned hip-hop veteran who made a name for himself in the 1980's as a member of the legendary Juice Crew. Kool G Rap is hugely regarded as an influential golden era emcee who inspired artists like Nas, Big Pun, Fat Joe, Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G. and more.
