The Underachievers – “Chrysalis”

By Tom Breihan / May 7, 2014

Brooklyn rap duo the Underachievers earned Mixtape Of The Week honors twice last year, for Indigoism and for The Lords Of Flatbush. They’re now working on their official debut album, which bears the ungainly title The Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium. First single “Chrysalis” is a piece of wordy, hazy New York rap, its boom-bap fed through a kaleidoscopic psychedelic filter. Listen below.

There’s no release info yet on The Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium, but it might be coming on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label.
