[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Talib Kweli gave X-Clan's Brother J the title earlier this week, New Orleans rap newcomer Rossy crowns Fabolous and Jadakiss SOHH Underrated.]
Fabolous, definitely is underrated. He's really the first name that comes to me. I would say Fabolous and Jadakiss. I grew up listening to a lot of them dudes. I always like Cash Money, Lil Wayne and Juvenile but as far as underrated, Fab and Jadakiss are underrated.
Fabolous, dude just got that flow, you feel me? And dude's been had that flow for a long time. I remember his "Can You Hear Me" track and I used to ride around to that all the time, you feel me? I just think dude is respected as a lyricist.
Even though I'm from the South, I'm on top of my game when it comes to music. I listen to a little bit of everything.
Rossy, a 22 year old MC from New Orleans. He's been heard on Shade 45 and featured in various publications. This is the first look with Atlantic Records and Louisiana native Kevin Gates.
