[With class sessions back in full swing, this week SOHH has decided to demonstrate school spirit by featuring entertainment personalities naming hip-hop newcomers they feel are most underrated. After Hot Rod gave Roscoe Dash the "Sophomore" title yesterday, rapper Diego Cash crowns "junior" rapper Nipsey Hussle as SOHH Underrated.]
Besides myself, man, that's gonna be hard to pick for an underrated rapper. Let me think about this for a second. Hmm. I think the person I feel is the most underrated rapper out right now is Nipsey Hussle.
I'm in Atlanta, Georgia, so, I see a lot of up-and-coming artists and see a lot of people talking about them. There are people that are out but you may not be hearing people talking about them all the time.
For me, I know Nipsey personally. I've done been to his house and hung out with him before. I've heard his music and seen his visuals. I've liked everything I heard. I'm someone that tries to keep my eyes focused on the newer artists that are coming out and [co-sign] Nipsey. The older artists have already been out anyway, you know what I mean? That's how I feel about it.
Nipsey's out there and represents the West. There's no question about that. Of course you know he's standing for [California]. He represents the West. I feel like that's perfect. He's what's going on on in the West Coast right now.
Diego Cash is signed to NBA star Carmelo Anthony's music group, Krossover Entertainment. With a strong underground buzz going for him, he has already worked amongst the likes of rap stars including Rick Ross and Fat Joe, amongst others.
