The Underachievers Put Rap in a “Cobra Clutch” in New Song
The Underachievers do anything but underachieve on "Cobra Clutch," a track that sees the duo from Flatbush, New York come at the entire rap game.
The beat for "Cobra Clutch" sounds like the soundtrack for a debris-filled, post-apocalyptic world, which might be the way The Underachievers want to leave the rap game in the near future. Both deliver tight verses, flexing their lyrical muscles with plenty of multi-syllabic rhyme schemes over the grim Tedd Boyd-produced instrumental.
This track comes about a week after The Underachievers dropped "Gotham Knights," a track off their forthcoming project Renaissance. On that song, AKTHESAVIOR and Issa Gold deliver much of the same sorts of bars you can find on "Cobra Clutch." Both tracks are a good sign for fans expecting some high quality work in the near future—and it looks like they're going to get a lot of it.
Recently, Issa Gold explained he and AK would be releasing at least three projects in 2017, with Renaissance set to drop first. The Underachievers haven't dropped a studio album since their critically acclaimed 2015 album, Evermore: The Art of Duality, but they did give fans the It Happened in Flatbush mixtape last year.
In any case, you can listen "Cobra Clutch" for yourself in the video below, and keep your eyes and ears open as we learn more about The Underachievers' new projects.
