East coast hiphop duo The Underachievers formed in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2011, comprised of rappers AKTHESAVIOR and Issa Gold. AK had originally been using the stage name 'The Underachievers' and applied the moniker to the duo when they began, representing their fondness for smoking weed, experimenting with psychedelic drugs and other interest which could be seen as symptoms of underarchievement by mainstream society. Their curiosity for pyschedelics bled through into a somewhat trippt sound that combined frantic rhyme styles with heavy, experimental production.
