[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Ca$hflow gave AZ, Black Rob and Talib Kweli the title earlier this week, ex-Shady Records rapper Ca$his has a three-way tie for SOHH Underrated.]
For real? I would have to say it's a three-way tie. Twista, I would say, is underrated because there's nobody that has ever existed that can beat him in fast rap. Anybody that has ever tried [has lost]. The closest you can get with still trying to sound good is impossible, compared to Twista. You can't beat him. He's the best. I got to give it up to Twista, he's extremely underrated.
I definitely think DJ Quik is underrated. DJ Quik is one of my favorite rappers of all time. He can do anything and everything plus he's a real solid n*gga. He's a well-rounded n*gga. He backs up what he say. I love DJ Quik. I think, worldwide, he should be on a way bigger plateau. They need his beats. I think everybody really needs to study his movements. Quik is a beast.
The third person I've got to name is Kurupt. Kurupt is one of my favorite rappers of all time. His lyrics and bars are always on swag. I think he's extremely underrated. He came up in the same camp with Snoop [Dogg] and Snoop is that n*gga. When you come up around somebody as big and dope as Snoop, you might not get the recognition for what you're doing all the way. I just think that's what the situation Kurupt is in but line for line, especially when I was coming up, it was hard to find anyone with more bars than Kurupt in rap.
I think those three guys are highly underrated. I think if they were at the top of the game where they should be with some of these other people who may not be as authentic with it, then I think the game would be in a better place. Honestly.
Ca$his is an American rapper, born and raised in Chicago, but relocated to Irvine, California in Orange County with his high school friend and producer Rikanatti to get away from the dangerous street life and to pursue his rap career. He is a member of the Gangster Disciples.
