[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After David E. Beats gave Lupe Fiasco the title earlier this week, rapper Roc C crowns Action Bronson SOHH Underrated.]
Shoot. There's so many to choose from, that's the thing about it. But the one cat that I can really say in on my radar and who I have my eye on is Lee Bannon. Anything that he's doing is so ill.
As far as emcees, I've gotta say Bronson. Action Bronson. I actually just met him [a while ago]. Dude was like a world renowned five-star chef and now he's out here tearing up this rap game. Looking at the way he's doing it the way he is, that's crazy.
He's putting out so much sh*t and he's hitting so many cats over the head. That's not even something people are talking about anymore. For a cat to just be moving and wanting to have everybody just want to mess with him. Like, "Aight."
I'm really happy for him. Do your thing, boy. He's a genuine cat. I'm rooting for him.
I'm one of those cats who always gravitated toward people that told stories. If whatever they were talking about made me catch that mood or if they're talking about something I've never heard of but can capture that image, that's the type of cats I gravitate towards.
That's something Action Bronson does very well.
Roc C is known for holding down the West Coast on the underground level and slowly emerging with commercial success. With Stoned Genius representing his third solo outing, the rapper is often associated with beatmakers like Alchemist, Madlib, Oh No and Jake One. He also shares a close relationship with rappers Charli2na, Big Pooh and more.
