[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Tech N9ne gave Joe Budden, Cam'ron and Beanie Sigel the title earlier this week, producer Ken Lewis crowns Joe Budden SOHH Underrated.]
I think Joe Budden is one of the best rappers on the friggin' planet.
Obviously he's still making his records after all of these years and I've always thought that Joe should have been one of the biggest. I still think he's one of the best but I would SOHH Underrated would go to him.
I've heard him do rhymes that are just incredible. I don't know what it is exactly because I don't following things like all of the types of records he makes and his different styles super closely and I didn't single him out because I think his career is over at this point.
I've always thought he should be considered in the same breath as a Kanye West and maybe an Eminem or somebody like that. Those are probably the two biggest names. But you know what I mean. As far as him not having gotten his due with his amount of talent and what he's done in his career, I think he would be the most underrated rapper.
Ken Lewis is an award-winning producer who has worked closely with Kanye West and Jay-Z along with mixed records for Drake and Rick Ross. His credits include 7 Grammy's, 57 Gold and Platinum albums and singles, 35 #1 albums and singles, and 16 more Grammy nominations, so far.
