Sheek Louch very well could be the most slept on rapper. Ever.

Whether you want to admit it or not, Sheek is a beast in the booth. He just happens to be part of a veritable supergroup that includes two rappers who are widely perceived as being just plain better than Sheek is. Or ever was.

As seen in the photo at left from today's paper, The Boston Globe is among the latest mainstream media to try to brand a white musical artist as "hip-hop."
