[The AK A.K.A.: This week, SOHH's featuring entertainment personalities naming the most underrated emcees with the illest, lethal rap alias. After Billy Danze gave M.O.P. the title last week, producer Cavie now crowns Deadly Threat as SOHH Underrated.]
You want to know who I think is underrated and who had a lot to say for West Coast artists? It's a guy named Deadly Threat. Everybody looks up to 2Pac but nobody knew that Pac looked up to Deadly Threat. So I'ma say Deadly Threat.
He used to be on a label with DJ Pooh. He was on the [movie] Friday soundtrack. He was on a label called the Bomb Records with MCA back in the day.
He's the only person I know who's ever wrote for 2Pac. He wrote for Pac. He wrote raps for 2Pac. He was with [Ice] Cube, Pac. He's one of the most underrated lyricists out here.
He's got the knowledge, he's got the lyrical content. Bars. Bars. He's dope. I think he would give a lot of cats problems. His pen is still vicious. I think he could still ghostwrite. He's almost like Skillz from VA.
Cavie has been producing music since he was 12 years old, with a little known group at the time called N.W.A.. Soon after, the group blew up and so did Cavie. He has traveled around the world producing music for the biggest names in hip-hop, so it was no surprise when he got the call to produce Cee Lo Green's new solo album. This project is not the only album on Cavie's plate. He recently agreed to work with Teddy Riley and another album for Macy Gray, and he's also crafting hits for the comeback albums of Goodie Mob, T.I. and DMX.
