[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Sadat X gave Kool G Rap the title last week, Jim Jonsin's production duo Finatik N Zac's Finatik crowns Termanology SOHH Underrated.]
Do you want to know who's really coming to my mind? It's a rapper named Termanology.
He's from Boston and he's done a lot of stuff with Statik Selektah and all of that, but I remember listening to his stuff about six or seven years ago while doing a radio show and I just remember saying, "Why hasn't this guy caught his break yet?"
He's been putting in so much work and I'm just a real big fan of that dude. To me, I don't know if I can say he's the most underrated, but he's one of the top ones that pops up into my mind.
I can probably name a few others but he's the one I'm going with.
He's been putting in work for so long and I know he did a crazy track with M.O.P. and I can't remember the name of it but I remember buying the vinyl and spinning it every week during my shows.
I would say he comes to mind.
Finatik N Zac are an Australian duo signed to producer Jim Jonsin's "Rebel Rock Entertainment". The duo consists of Michael "Finatik" Mule and Isaac "Zac" Deboni. By the time Finatik had reached eighteen, he had accomplished what most high school students had only dreamed of, and had acquainted himself with some of hip hop's biggest names such as DJ Premier, Method Man & Redman, Jurrasic 5, Black Eyed Peas, Mix Master Mike etc... During this time, Finatik continued to broaden his skills and decided that he wanted to be more involved in creating and developing the beats that he had become so used to playing on the decks weekly at resident nightclubs of up to 5,000 people all around Australia and Asia. Word spread fast that this popular young DJ had retired from battles and would be pursuing his production career. It was then that he was introduced to another Perth production heavyweight, Isaac Deboni, known as Zac, who had completed a diploma in audio engineering from the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) straight out of high school.
