The Underachievers have the story many of us “youngins” have. Were told they weren’t doing a darn thing while they were moving in music making things happen. I love the story behind this group. Composed of two Brooklyn rappers, AK the Savior and Issa Gold, the two were brought together by a mutual friend to do some recreational drugs and clicked from there. They went on to form a group, The Underachievers, to show that they may be “potheads” by social standards but are brining positivity to the masses through their music. Changing the stereotype of
being an underachiever by achieving great success in the industry. I was put on by a friend (I want my hat back btw) and have been listening to them all day! The group has recently released a mixtape called ‘It Happened in Flatbush’ which is an ode to their upbringing in Brooklyn. I will say though my favorite song by them right now is ‘The Dualist’ because it reminds me so much of The Roots in their earlier albums. Give them a listen on Spotify or Apple Music.
Like always, show them some love on social media as well!
