[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After SlimKid3 gave Black Thought the title earlier this week, Philadelphia Pastor Jomo K. Johnson crowns Sacramento rapper Sevin SOHH Underrated.]
There's a Sacramento rapper and his name is Sevin. I think he came out around the time of Brother Lynch. He may have come out a little after that. Brother Lynch has been around for a while.
This guy Sevin has [put out lots of albums.] I think he put out his tenth album [recently] and it's called Purple Reign. I have to say of very rap album that I've ever heard, this is the best album that I've ever heard.
Obviously there's not that many people who have heard of him outside of Sacramento. He was part of the Oakland Park Blood gang but he's a rapper and he's been around for a long time.
He sings, he raps and I think he produces as well. S-e-v-i-n. His album is amazing. I would have to say, to me, Sevin has been the most slept-on rapper that I've known and heard of.
