A traditional yet modern sounding rap duo "The underachievers" has been an upcoming act in the new age of conscience hip hop music. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the underachievers holds on to the lyrical concepts that many east coast rap groups and artist have done before their time. Wu Tang Clan, Sunz of Man, Gangstarr etc. are all New York rap legends that paved the way for the Underachievers to take conscience lyrics to the next level in rap.
With Trap music being the forefront of modern pop music, the underachievers blends traditional old school rap lyrics into modern trap style beats in their studio production. With this track "Chasing Faith" you cant help to hear a high source of reverb on melodic notes and sharp hi hat notes which are all elements to make a solid trap beat. Because artist like Kendrick Lamar and J Cole are mainstream acts that are pursuing the conscience rap genre, their work in staying relevant will sustain the chance for artist like the Underachievers to have a bright future.
