If The Underachievers upcoming EP The Lords of Flatbush sounds anything like their latest record "Leaving Scraps," they may soon have to find a more appropriate name to rap under because underachieving, like Chris Partlow once declared on The Wire, ain't in their repertoire no more.
The track is two minutes worth of lyrical pillaging from the enigmatic duo. "I'll take your bitch, elevate her shit/Now she looking at you niggas like you fake and shit," an animated Issa Gold raps. Match their fiery flows with Lex Luger's menacing production, and this track is way too short for the listening fiends out there. Alas, "Leaving Scraps" is the perfect track title.
At eight tracks in length, The Lords of Flatbush is coming later this year. While the title derives itself from the 1974 movie starring Henry Winkler and Sylvester Stallone, it's safe to say there won't be many, if any, references to the film. Kudos if there are though.
