Next week, hip-hop duo The Underachievers will release their third album, Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium via the RPM MSC imprint. The album is a 40-minute excursion through Issa Gold and AK’s dazzling wordplay and lyrical acrobatics, paired with beats that knock, samples that hypnotize and a general sense that this pair of twenty-somethings are among the best young rappers in the game right now. The kids got talent! Not that you have to take our word as gospel — you can listen to the full set right now (a week before its official release) over at NPR First Listen.
