[The Greatest Love of All: Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. In light of Valentine's Day, we are going with hip-hop artists who feel they are the most slept-on. After Mike "Trauma" D gave Big Pun the title last week, Dipset's Jim Jones crowns himself SOHH Underrated.]
When it comes to naming someone for SOHH Underrated, I have to name Jim Jones. I'm going to have to go with Jim Jones for SOHH Underrated.
Cam'ron and Juelz Santana have already gotten their accolades. So I can't name them SOHH Underrated. They've gone platinum and all of that. You can't be considered underrated if you've gone platinum. You heard?
I think a reason why you could consider me underrated is because I've got so many things going on in my favor that [the critics] don't want to give me the complete package. It's hard. It's hard when you look at a n*gga and think he's good at everything.
You heard me?
