Chance the Rapper vs. The Underachievers – Underground Kings, Round 1
It’s two against one here but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fair match.
The ever-charismatic Chance the Rapper is headed for superstardom on the heels of his well-received ‘Acid Rap’ mixtape. Magazine covers, co-signs from established artists like Twista and a major label bidding war are proof that this rapping, singing sensation is hip-hop’s next big thing and Chicago’s next hometown hero.
Representing Brooklyn and the Beast Coast collective is dynamic duo the Underachievers. MCs AK and Issa Gold infuse their rapid-fire verses with gems of knowledge and messages of spiritual enlightenment. Part street and part psychedelic, these signees to Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label are ones to watch.
