The Underachievers have been doing their thing for the past few years, creating 5th dimensional music to enlighten listeners while speaking about current events and social injustices with a tasteful delivery. This dynamic duo achieves the goal of creating conscious music with substance while staying turnt. Feeding medicine through candy, they allow listeners to enjoy heavy 808s and trap sounds while they deliver political messages. Yesterday they continue the movement with their newest project titled “It happened in Flatbush” this 10 track project can be streamed in its entirety below. “It Happened in Flatbush” serves as the duo’s follow-up to their sophomore album Evermore which dropped in September. In addition to their new release, The Underachievers are about to hit the road as part of the Smoker’s Club tour this summer with Cam’ron, Smoke DZA and others starting May 31st.

The dreadlocked whiz kid from the six is back with more nostalgic visuals for your pleasure. Jazz Cartier a Toronto nomad teams up with director Kyle Sanderson to drop two videos in one, combining “The Valley/Dead or Alive.” Both songs coming off his debut mix tape “Marauding in Paradise” which was released in 2015. The mysterious rappers versatility radiates over the boom-bap production while adding a unique OVO-contagious style that analysis his hometown from a bird’s eye view. Starting off trekking through the night Jazz welcomes everyone to the dark side of his city during the first part of this video, while subtly transforming to a softer lighter tone during the second, all while retaining the same intensity and creating an effective sound that embodies duality. The cinematography is filled with cryptic material which accents the artist lyrics to perfection. Demonstrating his strong will to survive and succeed in spite of the surrounding hate. We expect this year to be Cartier breakthrough year and look forward to more content. Press play on the link below and tell us what you think.
