The Underachievers Flex Their Lyrical Muscles on “Gotham Nights”
The Underachievers are preparing to drop their Renaissance mixtape. Yesterday (Jan. 31), the Brooklyn MCs delivered "Gotham Nights" from their forthcoming project.
Throughout the three-and-a-half minute, Joshua Heflinger-produced record, AKTHESAVIOR and Issa Gold flex their lyrical muscles over a part-elegant, part-rugged instrumental, which features boom-bap drums alongside soothing piano and jazzy saxophone sounds. The 25- and 26-year-old rappers apply a rapid fire flow that they've been cultivating over the past few years as favorites in the underground rap game.

In other Underachievers-related news, the Flatbush collective recently announced plans to drop not one, not two, but three projects in 2017. “At least 3 project coming from The Underachievers this year,” Issa Gold wrote on Twitter. “We got one coming in February.”
Their last full-length release was the 2016 mixtape It Happened in Flatbush, which contains 10 tracks. Prior to that project, the Beast Coast duo put out their studio album Evermore – The Art of Duality in 2015.
In September 2016, AKTHESAVIOR dropped a solo record titled "Inner Peace," which features a positive message on the chorus, “Half of their hours, brain devoured by the beast/Dollars can’t bring inner peace, but that still be what they teach."
As aforementioned, "Gotham Nights" will appear on the upcoming album Renaissance.
