[[The King Is Back: This week, SOHH allows entertainment personalities to help celebrate T.I.'s return from prison by featuring them naming a TIP collaborator they feel is most underrated. After Texas spitter Dorrough gave Ludacris the title this week, Dallas' Dorrough names T.I.'s "On Top of the World" rhyme partner Ludacris as SOHH Underrated.]
Name an underrated artist, old or new, besides myself? D*mn. There's alotta good ones out there.
I think different people are underrated at different points [of their careers]. I watch the numbers game, so I know who's doing what kind of numbres [in addition to] the respect they get for what they doing. Talent wise, I like [Rick] Ross' music alot - know what I'm sayin'? But I feel like now [since] the attention is on Ross, so I feel like I can't consider him as underrated because he showed n*ggas and made people pay attention.
Like on some street sh*t, I'd say [Young] Jeezy is underrated because when he first came out, he sold millions of records, but he never was getting the [praise] and recognition that other rappers who sold millions of records was gettin'. That one [reason for] me naming Jeezy.
Yo Gotti is a Southern rapper from Memphis, Tennesse. After a series of independent albums, his first studio album, entitled "Live from the Kitchen" is set to be released soon.
