[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Glasses Malone gave E-40 the title last week, Dipset's Freekey Zekey crowns Brooklyn rapper Fabolous as SOHH Underrated.]
For SOHH Underrated, you want to know who I really like? I would have to say Fabolous is really underrated.
I know there are a lot of people who like Fab, there's a lot of people, but I think he should be way up further than where he's at right now. I like Fab a lot. You know what I'm saying?
Fab stays spitting some other stuff. It's a lot of singles types of records, but he doesn't really get that "Ohhhhhhh, that's nasty!" reaction with his music. I don't hear that so much when it comes to Fabolous.
Jadakiss is nice and everybody says he's nasty with the rapping. You know what I'm saying? But I have to go with Fabolous for being my pick with SOHH Underrated and then my artist Sin City. He's been all over Jim Jones' songs and he does a lot of hooks and does a lot of joints. He's got a crazy sound.
Those are really my two picks for SOHH Underrated. They've both been in the game for a long time. Cam'ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana are hustlers. They can make a hot song and get a million fast. And in any battle Cam'ron came across, he melted whatever the situation was.
Oh SOHH You Say: "I Still Think He's The Best Rapper I've Ever Heard" Find out who made this statement on Thursday!
Freekey Zekey is a member of rap group "The Diplomats" and owner of "730 Dips Records". He is also the cousin of rap veteran, Cam'ron Giles. Zekey recently opened his first restaurant, The Palmetto, an upscale establishment providing sophisticated French inspired-southern dining. He is an advocate and national spokesperson for "Preserve Our Legacy"- a not for profit organization whose mission is to inform and educate individuals, especially minorities, about the benefits of stem cells and treatment options provided via peripheral blood stem cells, bone marrow and/or umbilical cord-blood donation. Even with all this, Zekey stays true to himself as a founding member of Dipset and is currently on their reunion tour.
