Flatbush Zombies & The Underachievers

When: Tue., Oct. 28, 7 p.m. 2014

Good things happen when the mad scientist producer Flying Lotus swoops in and signs you to his Brainfeeder label (especially after hearing only one of your tracks for a mere 20 seconds). Such is the case for the Flatbush-based crew The Underachievers. Since their 2012 meeting with FlyLo, rappers AK and Issa Gold of the Beast Coast crew (which also includes Flatbush Zombies and Pro Era) have been consistently co-piloting a slew of solid mixtapes and albums. Though their sound is rooted in traditional New York-style gutter, The Underachievers take it further, with a unique hard-hitting blend of drug-infused trap rap. Though neither rapper has a distinguishing style that sets him apart from his cohorts, it's their combined flows that inspire one to dip a swisher in the purple. Flatbush Zombies are also performing.
