Echolocation said:I'd say Erick Sermon is way underated considering he's the one that largely popularlized sampling in the first place if I'm not mistaken.
Huh?!?!? Hip-hop production was founded on sampling. No one person made sampling popular. Samplings been the staple for hip-hop since sugar hill sang rappers delight over the Chic Joint. Its just the everyday.
I don't think e double is underated. I think everyone pretty much respects him for what he's done behind the boards about as much as for what he's contributed infornt of the mic in his lenghty career.
