The Underachievers are rappers’ Issa Gold and AKTHESAVIOR, both Flatbush, Brooklyn natives and members of the Beast Coast Movement who came together in 2012 as a collective and have been on a steady ascent since emerging. Hailed as influential players in the new New York wave of rappers, the hip hop duo burst onto the scene with conscious rhymes in Oxford vocab over progressive beats while maintaining the true school era foundation they grew up on.

Issa and “AK” didn’t start rhyming together until years after they met. Fast forward from their first conversation, the two bonded about wanting to get into psychedelics – to Issa doing a feature for AK, who at the time was the sole Underachiever. “You guys need to rhyme together,” a producer told them and being friends of fellow Beast Coast influencers, Flatbush Zombies, both rappers had witnessed the critical and collaborative attitude which permeated that group. The duo then believed that finding such an environment and willingness to work, would be the key to doing it right.

Now, The Underachievers boast three critically-acclaimed mixtapes (“Indigoism,” “Lords of Flatbush” and “It Happened in Flatbush”), their debut album “Cellar Door – Terminus Ut Exordium,” a popular “Clockwork Indigo” five-track EP with Flatbush Zombies, a sold-out headline tour across North America, Europe & Canada, their sophomore album “Evermore – The Art of Duality” which portrayed a mature and auto-biographical manifesto of the UA lifestyle past and present and their most current “Renaissance” album, released in May, 2017.
