Brooklyn hip-hop duo The Underachievers will be coming back to Australia for headline shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth this April. Born in Brooklyn, raised in Flatbush – Issa Dash and AK met in 2007 and burst into the scene in 2012 with their debut mix tape Indigoism which met rave reviews from major hip-hop critics.
As members of the Beast Coast movement (which includes Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew), The Underachievers are part of the new wave of influential rappers coming out of New York.
Showcasing a raw energy that feels almost reminiscent of 90s hip hop, The Underachievers have shaken up the game with a refreshing new voice, bringing plenty of psychedelia and heightened lyricism into the mix. Their most recent sophomore album Evermore – The Art of Duality portrays a mature and auto-biographical manifesto of The Underachiever’s lifestyle past and present.
Having toured with the likes of Joey Bada$$ and Kendrick Lamar, last year the duo embarked on a sold out headline tour across North America and Europe. Following the recent announcement that their next anticipated mix tape project Lord of Flatbush 2 will be released in early 2016, the duo is now gearing up for the second leg of The Forevermore Express Tour throughout Europe, New Zealand and Australia.
