Sho Underscore – “Doin The Most” (Music Video)

There’s a famous picture of an army of thousands of soldiers facing the same direction and one soldier facing the opposite way holding up his middle finger with a proud smirk. If hip hop was an army, then Texas native Sho Underscore would most definitely be that soldier in the pic giving the world the biggest “F You” possible.

Creating his own style of music he refers to as “Southern Eclectic”, Sho has fathered an art form that you will immediately reject or embrace and cherish like a precious memory. After setting the tone with the release of his LP “What You Here Fo”, the visual for the single from the offering follows up and delivers everything you expected if you heard the project. With the harmonious pitch of an old school sweat covered permed out Southern Baptist preacher, Sho delivers his uncanny rhyme scheme with a method that will leave you humming the melody like Big Mama in the kitchen cooking Sunday dinner. Not to be outdone,

Scott Knoxx follows through with a notable set of bars and wordplay. Everything about the song and video is abnormal and quirky from the visuals to the production and delivery, but isn’t that what Hip Hop should be? When a young Andre 3000 first wore a wig and furry pants it caught everyone off guard until we realized he was on to something and we were the ones that had to catch up. Now I’m not comparing this to the likes of the hip-hop legend, but I can say that this gives that type of vibe. You can’t help but feel like you’re watching the creation of something new that may not make sense to you now, but in time you’ll learn to love and respect for one simple reason. In a time when most songs have the same beat, rhyme flow and subject matter, Sho Underscore interrupts the machine with a style that belongs to nobody else BUT him.

Whether you like it or not you have to respect it. He gives you no other choice.

What is the creative process behind your music?

I like to go off what my mood is on that day. If I’m feeling sad I’ll rap about some sad shit. If I just made some money, I’ll get cocky and rap about some money. I freestyle every song I’ve ever done and I like to record myself I’ve never needed an engineer. It’ll take me 30 mins to an hour to finish a song.
