[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Kovas gave Fabolous the title earlier this week, rapper Trip Lee crowns Big K.R.I.T. SOHH Underrated.]
Underrated? I think I'ma have to say Big K.R.I.T.
It's not because he's got such a buzz going on right now, a good buzz going on right now, I think he's an incredible talent with the beats he's doing and he's thought-provoking in a lot of his stuff now.
Me and Big K.R.I.T, when you listen to our music, you're going to hear a big difference beacuse I'm always trying to be careful not to contradict what God says in his word.
In terms of him as an artist, I think he's a beast. I'm hoping there's going to be room for him to be one of the leaders of the new school.
And I'm from Texas, when I hear Big K.R.I.T., I think of the South, all of the OutKast stuff, he just pulls something out and he really speaks to the South.
Since his first album release, Trip has traveled the world performing for thousands of listeners. The Christ-centered hip-hop message he brings has also built a platform for him among churches and other Christian organizations, which has led to numerous opportunities to preach and teach at conferences and other events. Trip now resides in Washington, DC with his wife and is finishing his Biblical and Theological Studies degree by distance with Boyce College. He is currently touring, working on his fourth album, blogging (bragonmylord.com) and aiming to author a few New York Times bestsellers. Trip's unending desire is to proclaim the grace and beauty of Jesus Christ to anyone that will listen. Ultimately, he hopes this journey will someday lead to pastoring a church.
