Who Are The Underachievers?

“Gold Soul Theory”

Issa Dash: “We made ‘Gold Soul Theory’ specifically for the second song. We had like maybe five or six songs, but we made ‘Gold Soul Theory’ after ‘So Devilish.’

 

The whole ‘Gold Soul Theory’ thing is basically detaching yourself from what society told you is the norm or what superficial things we normally might want to be into, and realizing that all you really need is inside of you. - Issa Dash

 

“Basically the ‘Gold Soul Theory’ is about finding out that all the treasures that man might want. The big test is basically, they, not God, but the universe or whoever’s controlling this entire thing, put all these superficial stimuli around all of us. From the clothes, to the girls, to the hoes, to the money, to all these different things. I feel like our capitalist society even capitalizes on that and makes us even chase that more.

“But the whole ‘Gold Soul Theory’ thing is basically detaching yourself from what society told you is the norm or what superficial things we normally might want to be into, and realizing that all you really need is inside of you. Not even just in your brain, but like from love to intelligence to all the natural shit that’s there outside for you that you don’t have to pay for. Not even just inside of you, but nature and all the other things. You don’t really need to be attached to superficial.

 

Everything you need was already embedded inside of you. It’s just a matter of going inside yourself and finding that. That’s our message, to really detach our generation from all the bullshit. - Issa Dash

 

“The ‘Gold Soul Theory’ is basically saying we’ve searched all around for enlightenment and everything else and realized that you really don’t have to look far. Everything you need was already embedded inside of you. It’s just a matter of going inside yourself and finding that. That’s our message, to really detach our generation from all the bullshit, and say, ‘Yeah, you can accept that stuff. I like clothes and all that different type of stuff. But it’s a matter of putting your life in priority. That’s not the most important shit.’

“I can enjoy sneakers. I like sneakers, but it’s like, I know that’s a materialistic thing. I’m making a conscious decision, that this is what I want to like. It’s not an unconscious thing. Basically making people conscious. That’s what it means to be conscious, to be conscious of your decisions. Like know, I’m making this decision, the decision isn’t being made for me by someone else. It’s me making my decisions.”
