Earlier this year, Brooklyn based duo The Underachievers, dropped their debut project Indigoism, Now, they’re returning with a new mixtape, The Lords of Flatbush. A strong attempt to reassert their undeniable spot in the Beast Coast movement.
The new mixtape holds a contrast to their previous works in the sense that it veers off into even more experimental territories – this is trippy shit. The duo which consists of members Issa Gold and AK had warned us of this and said their new work would be filled with bangers and although it undoubtedly is, I still feel that the standards and trends they set with the chill Beast Coast vibe of Indigoism means that this new mixtape is not quite up to its level. With that being said The Underachievers still serve up a dope menu with The Lords of Flatbush, filled with strong beat productions, their usual admirable lyricism and clear motivations. The mixtape provides us with a glimpse of things to come from the Brooklyn boys in terms of new styles and techniques, yet maintains the same communication of ideas we heard and fell in love with on Indigoism.
