[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Erik Marino gave Sadat X the title earlier this week, Ace Hood crowns Pusha T SOHH Underrated.]
I think Pusha T is very underrated. I'm a fan of Pusha T and I would have to put my homie Kevin Cossom on there. He makes great music and I'm saying him not just because he mentioned my name [as SOHH Underrated] but just solely because he makes great music.
Cossom makes great music, he's a phenomenal songwriter and his time is coming.
As far as Pusha T, I just love his music. Me just being a fan of him, I would love to touch one of his records, or just have the chance to do something with him. I think he's dope. I think he's an all-around dope artist.
Being on G.O.O.D. Music now, I just feel like he doesn't get the respect that he deserves.
I've been messing with Pusha T ever since he was in The Clipse, all the way back then when it was them [him and Malice]. I was rocking with Pusha and then he branced out to making his own music and doing his own thing.
That's when I started thinking, "Pusha's really dope." And he was coming out with crazy records and good features. I always thought Pusha was crazy [good] though.
Ace was born Antoine McColister in Broward County, Florida. After an injury took away any chance of a football career, Ace decided to go with the other activity in his life that he was good at, which is rapping. He was 17 years old, when he got together with the entertainment label, Dollaz & Dealz. He later hooked up with DJ Khaled. This kid has a lot of confidence and plenty of talent to back it up. He is destined to go far. He has been said to be an overnight success, and success has come quickly for Ace Hood. He has been on the cover of XXL magazine, he has a single "Cash Flow," on the top of the charts, and he has a new album out "Gutta" that has many guest performers on it that is sure to climb to the top of the charts quickly. He has a promising career ahead of him, and this is one rapper that is sure to be around for a long time to come.
