The 10 Best Mixtapes of February

The Underachievers, Indigoism

The Beast Coast movement of rappers has continued to produce a new wave of MCs that are fast-forwarding to prominence. The Underachievers—consisting of Issa Dash and AK—are Flatbush natives who caught the attention of producer Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. Their debut release, Indigoism, is a collection of psychedelic and bizarre sounds with two rising talents possessing formidable mic skills. Whereas local acts like Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew have found their niche audiences, The Underachievers have organically built a nice following. Check standouts “T.A.D.E.D.,” “Revelations,” and “New New York.”
