Here at Current World Media we’re all about sharing, especially when we’re talking about quality hip-hop. I was chilling at a homie’s place a few weeks back and through the wonders of Youtube he put me onto a young duo out of Flatbush, Brooklyn called The Underachievers.
The pair have quietly created a buzz with the videos released from their debut mixtape “INDIGOI.S.M”, scheduled for a September 11th release date.
The Underachievers’ next-level rhyme patterns and esoteric imagery would have been right at home in the mid-90s, so it’s good to see the new wave of MCs maintaining elements of what made that era so great. These cats like to smoke a joint or nine and weed features prevalently in their visuals. However if you write The Underachievers off as merely the latest in a long line of weed-rappers; you do it at your peril because in terms of mic skills, these guys would eat a lot of rappers for lunch. Don’t sleep…knowledge is being dropped in abundance here.
Check the videos and if you like what you see, remember INDIGOI.S.M is out 11th Sept from all good mixtape sources.
