[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Brother Ali gave Above The Law the title last week, West Coast rapper Kid Ink crowns Kurupt SOHH Underrated.]
Let's go with Kurupt. Kurupt just has that flow, man. I used to listen to him and think he could spit. Back when he was with the Dogg Pound with Daz, I thought he could really spit.
Shout-out to Kurupt, I actually seen him the other day. We chopped it up and it was cool.
I definitely let him know it was all respect. It's funny because there's a lot of older rappers coming to us now for tips and suggestions. It's a whole new viral game now and the production is a little bit different.
[Kurupt] was talking about just coming to the studio with us and trying to catch our vibe and build.
It'd be dope [to collaborate with him].
Solidifying himself as a real MC, Kid Ink garnered career-defining features from Hip-Hop and R&B stars including Young Money's Gudda Gudda, Roscoe Dash, Sterling Simms, Bei Maejor, Meek Mill and many more. Kid Ink's uncompromising work ethic would not allow him to rest on his more than impressive laurels; there needed to be a 'visual' movement to showcase his innovative style and unique persona.
