The Underachievers perform at Santos Party House

A Day With The Underachievers & Pro Era

The Underachievers perform at Santos Party House

The Noisey Rap Party earlier this week was headlined by my dear friends The Underachievers. I arrived a little early to check out my other extended fam Pro Era, led on this night by CJ Fly. Upon arrival, the homie Juan hit me with a cup of Hennessy to get my mind straight. I hit backstage, dapped the fam, and took to the stage for the performance. The whole Pro Era crew came through with a super live set featuring Joey Bada$$ and a really moving tribute to Capital $TEEZ. The Underachievers, composed of Issa Dash and AK, stormed out on stage and ran through damn near everything off Indigoism and a few new cuts, potentially off of the new release, Lords Of Flatbush, due out soon. Santos Party House was packed to capacity, and the crowd was extremely responsive and involved through the entire show.

The movement of this family-oriented and progressive music being put out by these talented people is really breathing life back into the NYC hip hop scene I love, making it easier and more accessible for their fan base to connect with them as artists, as well as on a personal level. Shouts out Meech and Juice too.
