[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After T3 gave The Pharcyde the title last week, Indiana rapper Nyzzy Nyce crowns Juelz Santana SOHH Underrated.]
I'm very selective to the music I listen to. Honestly, I grew up and listened to this guy now, so I'm going to have to say Juelz Santana is underrated.
Cam'ron had came out first anyway and he was kind of like the boss of everything so I'm pretty sure he got his shine and money out of the situation. I feel like Juelz Santana's first album, I still listen to that today.
I still bump that today. I think he put really good work on that and I think he was underrated. I think he should have been way more respected for that CD and what he's done. But I don't know everything that happened with that situation.
He was a very instrumental member for Dipset. That man had stood out with his own style, they all had their own style, but I really could vibe with Juelz. I also vibed with Cam'ron but I'm more of a dude that wears hats so I could get down with Juelz more.
And Juelz was younger and closer to my age. I always respected his music and what he was dropping.
Nyzzy's debut album "Have A Nyce Day" is slated for release in Fall 2013. The album features Nyzzy's laidback vocals over an eclectic array of trap-infused drums, feel good melodic synths and trunk-rattling 808s. Fans can anticipate videos for the singles "Live it up" "My City" and "Superstar" later in the year. Nyzzy is a rare breed of an artist who combines his sensibility for social entrepreneurship, altruistic nature, and passion-fueled lyrical ability to create infectious music. He says, "I do something, I fall into it, and I don't stop."
