[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name who they feel is the most underrated emcee in hip-hop. After Funny or Die's The Director Bros.'s Ryan gave Big Gipp the title last week, West Coast rapper Droop-E crowns E-40 SOHH Underrated.]
Who's the most underrated? That's a really good question. I would have to say, even though he gets his proper respect, I would have to say my pops. Honestly.
For him to still be doing it after all this time and for him to be putting out fresh music with fresh ideas, talking about things that people can really relate to right now and to be putting out three albums at a time, a year, that's unheard of. It's like he's making history every year and I don't know if it's the publicity or what, but I would have to name my pops out of everybody I could think of.
I would have to say his rhyme schemes are his most underrated talent and his lyricism. Rhyme schemes and lyrics and storytelling for sure. Definitely. The way he rhymes and flows with it, it's cold. It's cold. It's crazy.
Well known as the son of Hip-Hip icon E-40, Droop-E makes his new Hungry And Humble EP look effortless as he exceeds expectations with this new montage of real music produced by himself and Bay Area legends DJ Toure and Rick Rock. The influential project, with guest features from Kendrick Lamar, J-Stalin, Nite Jewel, Cousin Fik, R.O.D., Work Dirty, Kaveo, Choose Up Cheese and more, marks a milestone in the Bay Area-native's music career as a force to be reckoned with.
