Last year we were treated to the unexpected collaboration between rap duo, The Underachievers, and indie band Portugal. The Man on their track “Amorphous,” and now we get the visuals to go along with the music in a brand new music video. Members of The Underachievers, AK and Issa Gold, are seen in the video shot at Washington Square Park in Manhattan with a crowd gathering as a live news feed is simulated. As most things The Underachievers are involved in, at the end you leave feeling a little eerie and tripped out. This song is available on the group's breakout album, Cellar Door, on Flyo's Brainfeeder label. Enjoy!

Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers Release “Butterfly Effect” as New Supergroup Clockwork IndigoPosted in Chill by Jake | Tags: butterfly effect, clockwork indigo, Flatbush Zombies, Rap, The Underachievers
The supergroup comprising of Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers was bound to come together sooner or later. Both of these rap groups come out of the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, and rep the Beast Coast movement alongside Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era collective.
The groups have joined forces as the 5 man super group Clockwork Indigo and have dropped off their first song “Butterfly Effect”. Production from Eric Arc Elliot evokes the perfect eerie vibes as a shrill, crackly loop sets the tone on the seven-minute beat as the five rappers trade some unruly verses.

Two two piece Brooklyn based hip-hop group The Underachievers are back with their latest release, The Lords of Flatbush. It’s an 8 song mixtape produced by legendary hip-hop producer Lex Luger that ventures into more universal hip-hop tracks then their more experimental debut mixtape Indigoism. Working with Lex has completely shifted their sound that will allow them to have a far larger fanbase. The entire thing was great, but my favorite tracks from the mixtape would have to be “Still Shining” “Leaving Scraps”, “Melody Of The Free” and “Cold Crush” . Don’t sleep on this project, as this is just the beginning of a bright future for this duo. Enjoy.

The Underachievers made up of the young duo of AK and Issa Dash based out of New York have just released their debut mixtape Indigoism. The are apart of the Beast Coast Movement alongside Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era collective, Flatbush Zombies, and the A$AP Mob, who are all collectively helping prove that real hip-hop is both alive and on the rise. Although the group is based out of NY, they have signed with indie label Brainfeede based out of LA, founded founded by beat music legend Flying Lotus. Indigoism is instantly a release that stands out amongst all the noise that gets released so regularly. For all 17 tracks of their first tape to have so much flow filled wordplay and on point lyricism, other rappers should be scared. We got to sample Herb Shuttles and The Mahdi, and there are a few other stand out tracks like Gold Soul Theory, T.A.D.E.D., Leopard Sheppard, Maxing Out & So Devilish. You would be doing yourself wrong if you did not pick up the whole tape and fall in love with it. Enjoy

Say hello to The Underachievers.. the dopest new hip-hop groups I have heard in a while. This collective is based out of NYC.. and have only been putting out music for less than 9 months.. yet sound like true veterans in the game. The last time I was this excited about a rapper was Joey Badass or A$AP Rocky. The song is called “Herb Shuttles”, and it is going to get you hooked. This is that song you will be coming back to replay, over and over. The video shows really conveys the rawness of the track. Can’t wait to hear more from these guys. Time to abuse that replay button.
