[SOHH features a new entertainment personality each week to speak on who they feel is the most underrated artist. After Cormega gave Kool G Rap the title last week, reality star Miss Tila names Houston's Chamillionaire SOHH Underrated.]
I grew up in Texas so I listened to a lot of chopped-n-screwed music. It was hot and then ten years later everyone jumped on the bandwagon. I was like, "What? I've been up on this since way back
in the day."
I think Chamillionaire [is most underrated]. Yeah, that's my boy.
When it comes to Chamillionaire, I just think back to the music that I grew up listening to way back then and then it got all popular and mainstream. When it got big, you began seeing people jumping on the bandwagon.
Cham and the rest of them really started a whole new, revolutionary style of music. I like him definitely [because] of the things he talks about, his flow and I think those types of artists don't get enough recognition.
What you're seeing is so many mainstream artists getting those looks like Eminem and Jay-Z. It's not that they're bad but there's so many other artists that are so, so talented and they don't get enough play as they should. And I think it's a shame but hey, it's the industry for you.
After Chamillionaire, I would also say Kid Cudi. Kid Cudi could freestyle his butt off. He really can.
Miss Tila, formerly Tila Tequila, is most known for her rise to fame in 2006 as MySpace's most popular artist and has appeared in multiple publications including Stuff, Maxim, Penthouse, as well as starred in her own television series. In addition to her work in fashion and TV, Tila is also a rapper/singer.
