[Queens Gets The Money: This week SOHH is celebrating the historic New York borough by featuring an entertainment personality naming a Queens rapper they feel is the most underrated. After Havoc named Royal Flush earlier this week, Sleepwalkas' DJ M-Tri crowns Large Professor as SOHH Underrated.]
My pick for SOHH Underrated has to be Large Professor. I've always felt like he was very underrated.
People recognize him for his production but as an emcee, I think he's kind of slept on. I think he's very precise with what he does as far as his records and lyrics-wise. Large always came across strong. If you heard of Large Professor, you could tell he got it. You knew exactly what he was about from all of his classics. You knew what Large Professor was saying.
He was very well-rounded with his music. There's so many songs you could look at that were classics. Just listen to "How My Man Went Down in the Game", [or] "Snake Eyes". He really had a lot of good concepts in his music. I really liked his "Just Hangin' Out" record too. Listening to those tracks and what he was saying, you could tell how precise he was. He made sure to get the point across. I could say that he made sure to stay precise straight through with all of his music.
So I'm going to say that Large Professor is definitely SOHH Underrated.
Sleepwalkas' power to invigorate audiences increased even more with the genius addition of veteran DJ M-Tri in 2010. All stellar showmen having more than a decade of experience and the uncanny ability to connect with even the most unpredictable audiences, their new CD release "Cookie Cutter Cornballs Can't Cut It" (April 2011) is nothing short of life changing for current fans, while the perfect introduction to a brand new audience seeking the next big thing. Their album, Cookie Cutter Cornballs Can't Cut It, was released in April 2011.
