[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After R.A. the Rugged Man gave Super Lover Cee the title last week, Interscope's Kayla Brianna crowns Andre 3000 SOHH Underrated.]
The person I'm thinking about for SOHH Underrated is Andre 3000. That's who comes to my mind.
But then I feel like he likes his rep right where it is kind of. I think the people who really appreciate his music will find his music. I think he genuinely likes his true fans. Whoever his true fans are, they're going to find a way to listen to his music.
I think he likes where he's at. I don't know. I feel like he has the good music for the fans and people in the rap game respect him. Everyone knows how good he is. You can't deny that he's a great emcee.
His style definitely stands out the most to me. It's just the way he delivers his lyrics. For instance, if he says, "I love you," he's going to say it in some crazy kind of way. He'll say it in a way that makes me say, "Oh, wow, he just said I love you!"
It's really about the way he delivers his lyrics. The delivery really stands out.
Just when music, arguably, has reached its most mundane state, a fresh-faced and fierce talent is set to rock the world, one song at a time. Interscope Records' latest signee, Kayla Brianna, a R&B music darling, is the perfect amalgamation of brains, beauty and unparalleled talent. As she reminisces on "California Dreaming" as a young girl and living the glory days as the daughter of a retired basketball legend, Kayla B. credits influences including Brandy, Aaliyah and Keri Hilson for her sound, a fusion of classic pop, R&B and jazz, giving her a delivery reminiscent of the '90's.
