[BK Cipher: SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After Waka Flocka Flame gave J. Cole the title last week, Sleepwalkas' Ciph Diggy crowns Showbiz & A.G. as SOHH Underrated.]
I would say my pick for SOHH Underrated would have to be Showbiz & A.G.
I picked them because of their chemistry and what they did for really starting up the whole Diggin' In The Crates movement. I think they [became] really underrated after Showbiz got locked up and A.G. decided not to promote their latest album at the time.
If I can recall, I believe it was the album Goodfellas. That was such a dope album and [when] Showbiz got locked up, I guess A.G.'s whole way of thinking was, "Yo, I'm really not going to promote this without Showbiz."
And so without the promotion, it sort of went under the cracks. That was one of the dopest albums. I think they made one of the dopest albums ever. I loved it. I really feel like they got slept on and underrated after that.
Some of my favorite records from them are of course "Soul Clap" and really a lot of the songs of the Goodfellas album. D*mn, I can't think of them off the top of my head. But on a lot of their albums, they had the whole D.I.T.C. collective. They would have Diamond D, Fat Joe and all of them. Every time they would have them on their albums.
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.
