The Underachievers quickly became one of our favorite rap duos’ last year after releasing two great mixtapes in Indigoism and Lords Of Flatbush. It is not fair to stick them in the “conscious rap” box, but AK and Issa Gold have a knack for effectively spreading third-eye fueled knowledge within their rhymes. However, nothing about their style is corny or preachy, making The Underachievers a group worthy of much acclaim and deserving of attention in the NY rap scene as well as around the world. The duo have been prepping the release of their debut album slated to be released this year (titled The Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium) and we now have the first single from the project. “Incandescent” is more reminiscent of The Underachievers’ material on Lords Of Flatbush since it has a more hard-hitting, aggressive style. Both AK and Issa Gold sound fierce over the production provided by Ryan Hemsworth, who usually creates “cloud rap” beats yet successfully ventures outside of his comfort zone on this track. It will be interesting to see how The Underachievers approach this album and we hope the duos’ thought-provoking lyrics continue to be utilized with menacing, psychedelic production.
