[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After K. Rose gave OutKast the title earlier this week, Funny or Die's The Director Bros.'s Ryan crowns Goodie Mob's Big Gipp SOHH Underrated.]
I think one of our favorite rappers is Big Gipp from Goodie Mob. He's got to be one of the all-time favorites.
I grew up listening to Goodie Mob. I just think that dude has great style. I heard him talking, not too long ago, about how he would go to WWF shows and see the theatrics of it all and go back and imitate it all. I just love his style and I love his voice.
I love all of them in Goodie Mob, obviously Cee-Lo has gone on and done things but I feel like out of all those dudes, he's the most underappreciated. He's raw and he's insane and I love it.
Funny or Die is a comedy video website founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's production company, Gary Sanchez Productions with original and user-generated content. Funny or Die contains exclusive material from a number of famous contributors (e.g. Judd Apatow, James Franco) and also has its own Funny or Die Team, which creates original material for the site. Many clips on the site feature well-known actors (examples include Charlie Sheen, Ryan Gosling, Patrick Stewart, Daniel Radcliffe, Mila Kunis, Hilary Duff, Adam West, Jim Carrey and Jerry Seinfeld). Michael Kvamme, an aspiring young comedian, came up with a concept for a new kind of comedy site and the site was developed by Randy Adams. Videos are voted on by users of the site; those that are deemed funny stay, but those that are not "die" and are relegated to the site's "crypt". The title is a reference to the well known political cartoon, Join, or Die.
