[100 Yard Dash: Every week, SOHH features a group or solo artist naming the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Hot Rod gave Roscoe Dash the title earlier this week, Roscoe now explains why the SOHH Underrated throne should be shared by several young artists.]
Present rappers that are underrated? I say it's a gotta be a tie between myself, Wale and J. Cole.
The reason why I say that is that these guys, and I know J. Cole and Wale personally, they're both really good friends of mine and I speak to them on a regular basis ... but I would say that I was really surprised by both of their albums.
From me being a part of both of their projects and just being around them at shows I heard a lot of their singles but they both really took it to the next level on their album.
J. Cole and Wale delivered well-rounded albums that you can really play all the way through.
I really can't remember the last time I bought and album that I could play all the way through without skippping a song. They are both telling a story about the way they came up and giving people a perspective of what they represent. Their music, their substance and just their entire package is great and anytime you can find that success without by just letting the music speak for itself, that's dope.
Roscoe Dash is an artist hailing from Georgia. After being featured on a slew of guest tracks with rappers that include Big Sean, Soulja Boy, Wale and others. His album, J.U.I.C.E, is set to be released in 2012.
