After West Coast Rapper Co$$ highlighted duo member Lil Fame, Brooklyn MC Billy Danze now crowns he & his partner as SOHH Underrated.]
I think that everybody that deserves their props are getting the props that they deserve, or moreso, some of the props that they deserve.
Warriors was a very succesful album for us, and alotta people say they love it. I got my picks as well, Warriors was a good album, but to me To the Death was our best album because that was the first time I had ever been in the studio or actually heard myself through a recording.
That album was also the first time I was gettin' love outside of the love I was gettin' on the block.
We did the G-Unit Records thing, the Roc-A-Fella thing and we're still relevant. You don't hear alot of classic tracks nowadays. If you throw on "Eric B. for President," I don't care where you are, or what age you are, that puts you into a zone where you will pay attention into it.We're a big touring band. We've been almost everywhere in the world except for China and Africa. We've been to Bosnia and places we can't even pronounce, dude. That's the thing, alotta the dudes that are big in the U.S. have no prescence overseas. Those people over there still like real Hip Hop.
The music has to have effort. If you're gonna be in the game, be all the way in the game, man. Don't be here just to make a few dollars.
